Presentation: Bridging the Gap Between Designers and Developers



7:15pm - 8:05pm

Day of week:



Designers and developers often have specific goals when creating interactive experiences. Because our creative processes overlap and influence one another, knowing each other’s considerations is key to designing and implementing experiences that are both usable and performing. How can designers help developers? How can developers help designers? In this presentation, we will explore communication and collaboration practices that help in this process.
