Abstract

Get introduced to GlitterGallery, an open source GitHub for designers. In this talk, I will be discussing the objectives behind a collaboration tool for designers, and the benefits it can have for a community. After interacting with interesting designers, I've been trying to understand the kind of social experience that would benefit them - I'll share my observations.

The talk itself will be interactive, as I'd like to understand problems designers face, and improve the product.

Outline

At Fedora project, as part of a Google Summer of Code project, I co-authored a GitHub for designers, aimed at improving designer collaboration. Currently, it's based around the fork/pull design project model, and is beginning to be used by small open source design teams as an experiment.

Soon, we're going to be facilitating meetings, screen recordings and we're looking at other ways to reflect a designer's thought process. I'd like the talk to be interactive, where we discuss how we digitize a designer's thought process, and how we can offer a complete office for designers.

Requirements

Just bring along a list of design problems you've faced this far ;)

And just to get the context, you may want to read these two blogposts - I would add them to the links section, but it's fetching the entire content and looks ugly.

How it started

Speaker bio

I'm 19, and I love designers. I've co-authored GlitterGallery over the summer of 2013 as my Google Summer of Code project with Fedora.

At college, I help run the tech{know}logy club in college where I help juniors catch up with web awesomeness and spread design love! Currently, I'm interning at Cleartrip with the Product Design team.
