Design Systems Coffee Talk 2018.11 w/ the Carbon Design System Team @ IBM


We'll be joining members of the Carbon Design System team for our November coffee talk at IBM.

Our cadence for these talks will be on the first Friday of every month in an attempt to avoid overlap with Creative Mornings.

This month we'll be iterating on something we tried out in September, instead of co-creating our Discussion guide as a group en masse, we'll be breaking off into smaller groups based on interests for more focused discussions.

Do your best to arrive before 8:30 if you can and come prepared with any questions you'd like to ask our hosts from IBM, or more generic Design Systems questions or topics you'd like to discuss.

Further, be sure to bring a photo ID to check in with security in the Main Lobby of Bldg. 904. Members of the Carbon Design System team will greet you in the lobby.
