Dreaming the Same Dream - Designers & Developers Working Together

Dreaming the same dream: How designers and developers can work together to make beautiful and usable software.

Most of our jobs entail some level of cooperation with team members. Energized by a string recent software successes, Chesley and Bucky will share lessons learned, keys to success, nuggets of wisdom and how to cope with having unusual names when building beautiful and usable software. They will also discuss how to effectively work as a designer and developer duo to make the same dream come true.

They'll have a 20-30 minute presentation on the topics mentioned above, followed by a Q and A session and then an open discussion where everyone is encouraged to participate by talking about real-world questions, issues, problems, and insights having faced similar situations.

    Bucky and Chesley did a great job of presenting the details of their email composer project. They did an excellent job of making the content relevant to a wider audience including lessons learned and helpful tips and they made it entertaining in the process. It was great how passionate they are about their work, helping others become more productive and all with a pleasing UI Design. It's also nice to see a small team with such complementary skills and a mutual appreciation. In my experience that's pretty rare.
