Design from the dimension of open-source

Getting into open-source can be intimidating as a designer. It's not something that you can just wake up in the morning and start doing if you've never been a designer before. From a high level, let's 'design' our first open-source project, complete with quick methodologies, tips, tricks, and some extra bits.

This talk was crafted with the aim of lowering some of the barriers for designers to contribute to open-source, how designers can actually contribute to open-source 'live-designing' and providing some direction and resources to help people get started with contributing to design from a realm of open-source.

Where to do with all the research

👉🏽 Repositories (aka repos). 👈🏽 As UX-ers we sometimes struggle to get enough research done in the first place so it's great when we finally get the research ball rolling and start accumulating eye-opening insight but... what do we do with it all? Survey results, usability test findings and discovery research interviews... where should it all go? How do we make sure knowledge keeps being seen and built upon rather than be put in a dusty report to never be surfaced again?

Jane Hostler (a well versed member of our group!) faced this problem in her work and will be sharing her experiences with us. 🌈

Here's a bit more:

Jane is a User Experience Designer who’s worked in the digital industry for the last 20 years. Primarily working as a UI designer on websites (plus some brief dabbling with front end development back when it was all tables), she landed a new job two years ago that brought the chance to gain product design and research experience and everything that comes with it. Like, what do you do with all that stuff!?

She’ll be giving a quick whistle stop tour of how Airtable has helped her to pull together the feedback and insights she uncovers in this role, and looking at the pros and the cons of Airtable as a research repository.

We're all invited to actively participate in what will definitely be a very interesting conversation and chip in with our own experiences of dealing with insight stacks.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Feel free to BYOB and food, light candles, anything goes! Details for how to join will be provided nearer the time. Please RSVP and feel free to share or invite others. We're @LadiesThatUXBRS on twitter.
