Brad Frost announced as Generate keynote speaker

Brad Frost will be delivering Generate New York's opening keynote speech.

Sketching out his keynote, Frost says: "I want to talk about what it means to make a website in 2015 and what it means to call yourself a web designer... We're swimming in options, technologies, techniques, opinions. I want to say - coming from a none-programming background - that it's alright to not know everything."

Atomic Design

Elsewhere, Frost is writing a unique book about web design. Called Atomic Design, the book is being created live on GitHub and the community is invited to use, learn from, and also contribute to the document as it's being created.
