Designers are designers and developers are developers and never the twain shall meet, right? Except – not really. There are some imaginary lines drawn around the two disciplines of design and development, but the truth is they are closely intertwined, and it can be very useful for application creators to be able to understand the value and process of design. We’ll cover everything from design concepts and principles to technical tools and tricks of the trade that developers can use themselves, as well as ways to communicate about design with the rest of your team throughout the development process.

Jen Myers is a designer, UI developer and instructor at Dev Bootcamp in Chicago. She currently organizes the beginner coder education program Girl Develop It Columbus, teaches HTML/CSS, and speaks about topics related to design, education and diversity in the technology field. She likes good film, comic books and frequently changing her hair color.
