Hello Product Hunt! I started this journey 3 years ago after getting my US visa denied, with the hope to teach designers how to code and use the best design tools. That hasn't changed one bit. We're now a team of 10 and we're incredibly excited to launch this new site we coded from the ground up. We recently moved to React, Gatsby, Netlify, Contentful, which we also teach – the whole process of designing and coding a real site and iOS app. No coding experience required. Design+Code 3 now has 60 hours of video lessons across 12 courses. We now teach Design System in Figma, React for designers, ARKit 2, After Effects, Sketch and a lot more. We now support Chinese Simplified and Traditional. You can check your progress as you go through the courses and receive live chat help from our team as you learn how to code. For the late coders, we added Dark Mode too! For Product Hunters, we're giving you a 50% discount for a limited time! Ask me anything! :) Meng

@tcodinat Thank you Toni! 🙏

@mengto I have been doing this course since the first release and I find myself giddy to know that my annual Design+Code sabbatical is going to start soon. I honestly can't wait to see the content of this new iteration.
Shreyaa Ratra
@mengto The product looks dope. Congratulations :) How about partnering with companies and helping them hire talent from Design+Code 3 who have completed their courses ?

@mengto @shreyaa_ratra Yes, @MengTo has thought about this, and we will be looking into creating certificates in the future to help with course completion and professional growth.
Meng To
Maker
@shreyaa_ratra We'd like to add a Certificate page where students who passed some approved tests can proudly put in their credentials. To put more weight, we also want to allow students to submit projects they create using the courses.

@odajay Literally can't wait to add more courses like Framer X, React Part 2, React Native, Vue.js. We received a ton of great feedback for React, so I can't wait to expand those topics. – Thanks Jonathan! :)
Hunter Becton
@mengto This is incredible! I create tutorials and have a basic site on WordPress. I've been wanting to learn how to create a site with React and I just signed up to your course!
Jon Sutherland
@mengto Awesome work! This is great 😻
Hayden Evans
@mengto I've been a Design+Code reader/user/subscriber since version 1 and I am always thoroughly blown away by how much dedication goes into it. Well done! As always, keep up the amazing work!
Meng To
Maker
@hayden_evans So kind of you, thank you. We will keep adding a ton of content!
TeddyGraphics
If I bought Design+Code quite a bit ago, will I get my license updated to Design+Code 3?
Seth
@teddygraphics I've the same question @mengto
Blair Rorani
@teddygraphics wait you want him to go from a team of one to version 3 of the product and 9 more salaries and you don’t want to pay him any more money? That’s not how business works.
Meng To
Maker
@teddygraphics If you bought within the last 12 months, you will get access to the latest courses for free in V3. Beyond that, you can take advantage of this discount. We went from 4 courses to 12 since, so we have to support that massive effort. :)
TeddyGraphics
@mengto Yea I've bought Design+Code2 on Nov 10th 2017. How do I update? Please
Meng To
Maker
@teddygraphics You just need to sign in and you'll automatically have a V3 Pro account.

@teddygraphics @mengto If I bought v2 will my v3 licence expire at the same time as my v2 licence would have expired?
Meng To
Maker
@teddygraphics @blairrorani If you bought v2 and then in v3, both durations will be added to each other. :)

@mengto My iOS app doesn't want to update https://drive.google.com/open?id=1q5g_kUhzQOUCc8m-AMLuaJIXpJnpODqf

@teddygraphics Sorry, this is a bug, we will get all the dates to sync perfectly between iOS and Web. cc @tmergulhao

Idea is not bed I think
Mihai
I tried signing up for the Free Trial, I entered my email address, but the "Try for Free" button doesn't seem to do anything. It animates on hover and that's it.
Thomas Wang
Maker
@lmihai That's a weird bug, if go to https://designcode.io/signup and hit try for free there it should work :)
Thomas Wang
Maker
I just noticed the bug, should be working within 10 min :)
Vineet Markan
@thomaswangio Can't try out the free lesson. "Try for Free" is non responsive.
Thomas Wang
Maker
@lmihai We've just squashed this 🐛... let us know if you run into any other issues!
Jang Trinh
I has been a reader of Design+Code from version 1 till now. Pretty satisfied with what I have learned from Meng To and the team, not just knowledge but the passion and beyond.
Meng To
Maker
@jang_photo I'm glad I could communicate my passion as well because it's so important for learning hard stuff like coding. Thank you for being a long-time reader!
Luboš Volkov
This is epic man! Thanks for sharing it with the community!
Jake Hawkes
Meng the new site is spot on! If I have a version 1 membership (signed up the first week) that will expire will you offer a discount at the time of renewal? I think this is what is being asked by @teddygraphics The website Design+Code account page says 'Your subscription will end on Jan 14, 2019. It won’t renew. You have access to all courses, premium downloads, professional support and discounts.'
Meng To
Maker
@teddygraphics @gravnetic1 The discount is time-constrained. What you can do though is to buy the extension now and it will automatically add a year after Jan 14.
Aleksander Skjoelsvik
Been a reader of Design+Code since the o.g. version 1, and can absolutely recommend the content that Meng To puts out! Very excited to play around with all the new stuff in version 3 this weekend 🙌
TeddyGraphics
How did you guys do these perspective screen views in your promo-video? Was it done all in Screenflow?
Thomas Wang
Maker
@teddygraphics it was all @dnisttahuz :)
Thomas Wang
Maker
@teddygraphics @dnisttahuz Check out his After Effects course: https://designcode.io/after-effects/ ;) - I need to take it myself as well, haha.
Daniel Nisttahuz 
Maker
@teddygraphics Screenflow is a nice tool, but we use After Effects to do all the animations.
Thomas Wang

@teddygraphics And his Screenflow course: https://designcode.io/screenflow-concept-storyboard.

@teddygraphics Look out for content about this in the near future :) cc @dnisttahuz
Toma Cotuna
Heyy!! So I bought the Design+Code 2 around Nov and I understand that i only have to sing in and will have a pro account for V3, but even if i do i still get the Get Pro button is this expected??
Thomas Wang
Maker
@tomacotuna I'm assuming you mean you see the Get Pro button on the Home Page. That's expected. If you click Get Pro it will give you an active subscription, with no end date, unless you decide you want to cancel. I hope that clears it up!
Toma Cotuna
@thomaswangio thanks for the clarification, cant wait to give it a go ❤️❤️. One more thing what happens once my subscription is finish will i lose access to all the courses or wont get any updates from that date on till i get a new subscription??
Thomas Wang
Maker
@tomacotuna Yes, once the subscription ends, you will only have access to free content (like the Design Systems Figma course). You can of course download the material you have access to right now before your subscription ends.
Zev Lapin
Anyone have examples of an app they've built after Design+Code?

Congrats on the launch @mengto. I'm very proud that @pizza0502 is a part of this amazing team (though I don't think Klang is a food heaven).

Michael Tchong
So will I be able to build a site that looks like Design+Code with the React lessons? 🤔
Thomas Wang
Maker
@ubercool That's the idea :)
Michael Tchong
@thomaswangio Awesome, I love the design and functionality! 😁
Babken Karapetyan
Interest and looks pretty good
Matt Ellsworth
Incredibly well produced videos that are easy to understand. Glad to be a customer.
Ken Truong
Nice! @mengto How come there's no monthly option for the 50% discount?
Thomas Wang
Maker
@mengto @ken_truong Unfortunately, we're not offering a monthly 50% discount right now. You can, however, do a regular price monthly plan and download all the course material for the courses you want.
Ken Truong
@mengto @thomaswangio thanks for the update! I'll do that. Just as an FYI then as it's a little misleading...if you follow the Design+Code PH link for the discount and then view the Pricing options you'll notice the monthly billing breakdown (that is not offered) as well. Thanks for sharing!
Thomas Wang
Maker
@mengto @ken_truong ah yes, we've fixed that little line...thanks for pointing that out!
Romain
hi @mengto , I bought V1, V2 which were full "books". Am I losing access to these if I don't start paying a subscription?
Meng To
Maker
@londonrom Since V2, we had to limit to one year of free upgrades in order to support the massive flow of new content. After V3, we don't restrict access to accounts anymore, but you will need a Pro account to access the premium courses. If you bought V2, you still have time remaining for access all of the content and downloads.
Romain
Hey Meng, thanks for getting back. I get what you are saying, I can download the files, but I am loosing the nice platform and need to store all this content as files on my Mac / a cloud / a drive. Not really what I bought.
Thomas Wang
Maker
@londonrom you can still access the V2 book at https://v2.designcode.io
Daryl
Hey guys, is there anyway to pay via PayPal? Paying in $$$ on a UK bank account incures bank fees. Thanks
Thomas Wang
Maker
@darylthetwit yes, this is on our priority feature list. Should be out this month.
Daryl
@thomaswangio amazing thank you, will it be in time to take advantage of the product hunt discount?
Thomas Wang
Maker
@darylthetwit should be! if not, email me at thomas@designcode.io and i'll make sure to get you a promo code :)
