✨ Speakers:

Dylan Field (https://twitter.com/zoink)
CEO & Co-Founder @ Figma
— Introduction and Welcome

Ben Aldred

Azima Mansuri + Sara Clayton
UX Researcher, UX Designer @ Microsoft
—The Evolution of Design Collaboration: Design has always been at the center of a very collaborative process – collaboration with product managers, with developers, with content writers, and with fellow designers. With the advent of an overwhelming amount of incredible new tools and standardized practices, design collaboration is rapidly evolving to a more effective, efficient, and transparent process. To learn about how designers and their processes have evolved in parallel, we interviewed some great designers and researchers and are excited to share what they had to say about the process then, now and what they expect it to be in the future!

Adam Ferch
Product Design @ Microsoft
— Engineering design consistency: To deliver real business impact, product teams have to move fast and fail forward. Today in technology, you can’t have design consistency at scale without close collaboration with your engineers. So, we’re architecting a way to make engineers better designers and designers better engineers. And I’ll show you how.

Stay tuned for our complete line up of lightning talks on design systems and collaboration!
