Raleigh-Durham Web Design Group: Fostering Collaboration with Pattern Libraries

  • Jun 3, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

(notice the changed date: first Tuesday in June)

Fostering Collaboration with Pattern Libraries

Recognize the benefits of using a living pattern library to increase communication and collaboration between designers and developers. In this session we will review a case study from an enterprise-level development group traditionally staffed with 60+ developers and no designers and how they were able to implement a pattern library and rapid prototyping framework into their design and development process. In this session we will discuss:

• modular pattern creation with Sass/Compass/Slim/JavaScript 

• how patterns can be combined to be used during rapid prototyping 

• developing a consistent language that can be used between designers and developers 

• collaboration exercises for designers and developers to create a consistent feedback loop

Bermon is the organizer of various community groups for 

user experience designers and front-end developers, and the organizer of Blend Conference, a 3-day multi-track event for user experience strategists, designers and developers. He also leads the user experience team for Cardinal Solutions' Charlotte office where he consults with large enterprise clients on interesting problems across user experience, design and front-end development. 

Format of Meeting, and Time

Since many of us get to the meeting early, we make a half-hour available as a meet-eat-and-greet time prior to any presentations or shop talk. We start formally at 7:30pm, but arriving at 7pm will give you time to get settled in. 

We typically do a round-robin greeting just before the action starts at 7:30pm. We will end the greeting period with announcements, and then give the floor to the presenter or moderator.


Speakers, THANK YOU for your participation.

About the Locations

Recent meetings have been held at TekSystems' offices at the corner of Edwards Mills and Trinity Road. Outside doors of the building lock at 7pm - we will try to have a posted paper with a cell number to call or text or have a person at the door - but arriving promptly will help avoid a wait.

    The speaker was great. He was knowledgeable, receptive to feedback during and after the presentation, and had a solid presence. There was a good group in attendance with a concentration of developer-types.
