Bridging the Designer – Developer Divide
The goal of this talk is to provide attendees with practical advice that can help app designers and developers work together more effectively. It draws on the experience Chris has gained through 4 years at Deloitte Digital, leading both design and/or engineering for prominent Australian clients including Australia Post, ING Direct, Telstra, The Victorian and Federal Governments.
At the heart of the discussion is the fact that designer’s goal of UI consistency and the developer’s goal of cleanly architected code are not opposing desires, but in fact the same goal spoken in a different language. The talk will include both general advice about how teams can work together more effectively and also very tangible recommendations for structuring design deliverables and UI code.
