Talk from Lise Noble, UX/UI Distinguished Engineer, Discover Financial at OpenJS World 2023 in Vancouver, Canada, May 10-12.
Lise Noble discusses the industry’s adoption of open source software as a means to drive innovation and efficiency. While organizations have been increasingly embracing Design Thinking and incorporating it into their product development practices, there is a growing demand to extend open source principles to the entire design process and lifecycle.
In this talk, Lise shares the approach to design and the emerging need for DesignOps to improve the quality of speed of effective design and the emerging opportunity for Designers in the open source community. Lise covers the lack of design in UX and UI and shares methods for including and practicing accessibility. She wraps up by exploring the future of open source in design.
