This meetup is going to be much more practical than the last ones. In this one, we will talk about the current state of Design Ops and the evolution of our Design Tools, and we will even count with the special presence of the Framer team, that will show us their latest release of Framer X. If you don't know what Framer is, you should definitely check out the sexy short video and be blown away: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foSkKVtHkM4
Also, we will be talking about Design Ops, the larger theme that has been thrown around for some time now as something we, as Designers, should be aware of, especially if we work in a larger Design Team and really feel the pain of the lack of processes and methodologies to coordinate everybody and accomplish our everyday tasks as Designers.
So, for us to get more into that, let's get together once again next Thursday, November 15th, at Farfetch offices in Lisbon, starting at 18:30. We will have 3 speakers and a panel discussion afterward and the usual snacks and drinks as well.
Here is the speaker list:
