UI/UX design for engineers

Like many other software engineers who work in web development, I feel quite comfortable writing JavaScript and have lots of experience with frameworks such as Angular or React but I'd love to brush up on my user interface design and CSS skills.

This seems to be a common theme amongst engineers so I thought it would be good to share resources aimed at those who don't have formal training in UI/UX design. Have you found anything worth sharing recently?

To kick it off I'll start with some resources that I have come across thanks mostly to browsing twitter & especially Sarah Drasner who has an amazing amount of content on her personal site, github & codepen 🙏🙏🙏🙏

I'll keep it updated as I come across new content from time to time:
