The Future of Web Design in London

May 11, 2012 Jonathan Berger

I’m very excited to head to London next week to speak Code Literacy for Designers at the always-excellent Future of Web Design Conference. Working at Pivotal Labs, I’ve learned a lot over the last few years about how Agile software development and design interact, and I’m really looking forward to engaging in the conversation in one of my favorite cities. If you’ll be at FOWD, please come check it out at 11:15 on Wed! And if you’re in London and want to talk UX, drop me a line!

From the talk description:

Do you spend half your day on mockups in Illustrator and the other half on Javascript in a text editor? Know anyone who does? The way we work is changing. Rigid, traditionally defined roles like “Designer” and “Developer” are being displaced by interdisciplinary skillsets and a culture of collective product ownership. In this talk, we’ll investigate how treating Coding as Literacy can affect the way decisions are made and work gets done, describe how varying levels of literacy among teammates facilitate effective agile design and development, and discuss how designers can get literate in technical topics.
