Unifying Agile and UX with Live Style Guides

  • This location is shown only to members

One of the many emergent Agile UX tools enabling teams to more effectively design while building is the Live Style Guide.

It's a great example of applying Agile thinking to UX practice. Here, instead of documenting UI patterns in a traditional static document, the style guide is built using the actual production technology, making it a living and continuously evolving bridge between design and development.

During this session, members of Case Commons, Pivotal Labs, and Efficiency 2.0 will demo implementations of this technique, discuss practical considerations, and compare and contrast their various approaches.  We'll follow their presentation with a panel-style Q&A.

We hope you can join us!

    I love the fact that this meetup was guided by cutting edge practitioners - rather than theorists. Examples were all concrete. Excellent.

    Although it started 30 minutes late, it was very informative. It was particularly great to hear different perspectives, from Product owner, designers and developers.

    Excellent session, right level of tech talk. A small ambiguity going in - It seemed a number of attendees were unclear whether "Live Style Guides" referred to a product or a design pattern - I had already developed one yet wasn't clear that was what was being referred until 20 minutes in.
