This month we'll be hearing from Heather Corcoran who is Kickstarter's design and technology outreach manager for the UK and Europe.
Creating Technology in Public: Insights from 7,000 Kickstarter Projects
With more than 7,000 design and technology projects funded, Kickstarter has become a hub of creativity for technologists & product designers from around the world. This session focuses on how the product development changes when creators embrace transparency, collaborative funding & community involvement, enabling people to become engaged throughout the creative process rather than 'just' consumers.
