Thanks a lot Victory for the wonderful talk.
I think most of us don't think about design as we already have designers in our team. I feel irrespective of, if a person is a designer or not, everyone should think atleast a little like designers. So, being a backend engineer, how can one develop their mind to think of design also?

Well firstly I’ll say build your visual skills. Train your eye to differentiate between good design and bad design. A good way to get started on this is by identifying areas on products you use often, that you think could be done better. It could be the color, font size, icon size etc. while working on a project you can volunteer to be a user. That way you get a picture of what you’re working on. Opinions are always welcomed but they need to be backed by proper research and data.
