UI Components by Design: Bridging the Designer-Developer Gap

UI Components by Design: Bridging the Designer-Developer Gap

Presented at the Chicago Coder Conference 2017


Even in an agile environment, the transition between design work and development work has been un-collaborative. Designers design a thing. Developers build a thing. And in the middle… a 1-way hand-off that lacks consideration for both crafts. We can do better. Ryan and Angelina share their challenges and insights in trying to break down that wall, learned from experiences on a large-scale, integrated UX design and UI development team. From strategies for building a purposeful team structure to technical considerations in implementing a library of UI components, you’ll hear relatable experiences and practical tips to create a more enjoyable, collaborative, and productive space for design and development.
