As front-end and CSS developers, we are one of the gatekeeper of the presentation layer. However we are not the sole contributor and therefore not the sole gatekeeper of said UI. Designers, UX and UI, share the glory, joy of the greatness of product and the shame of some of its shortcomings. The interaction between developers and designers and UX is one of the important aspects of the development process.
Our May meetup is devoted to talk about this interaction and outlining:
- Etiquette of a proper hand-off
- Deliverables from designers and how to read it, treat it, and deliver it
- General rules of thumb
This presentation will be lead by Jim O'Neill, Creative Director of Above the Fold. A little about Jim:
Jim O'Neill is the Creative Director at Above the Fold, a UX design agency in Cambridge, where he leads the visual design and front-end development of web and mobile apps for many diverse clients. He has 8 years experience as a UI/UX designer, exploring the intersection of visual aesthetics, psychology and code.
If you are developer, bring a designer friend/co-worker and if you are a designer, then vice versa. Take this opportunity to learn best practices and share some of your own.
Looking forward to seeing everyone.
