Added a guide on Design Thinking

Design Thinking is the final topic in the developer mindset portion of the pillars of clean code.

In this guide, we learn about the basics of Human-Centered Design how you can use it to optimize your code to be understood by humans.

We're learn the psychology behind how humans discover and understand what can be done and how things work.

Then, we're learn the fundamental principles of design. Just like how there are software design principles, there are human-centered design principles. We can use them to optimize the discoverability and understandability
