Design is a crucial element to any software project. Sooner or later, the reasons for writing all of this code are going to be communicated to another human being who isn’t as familiar with the inner workings as the development team. Yet stereotypes exist on both side of the divide, engineers often expect designers to be flaky and irrational, while designers conversely expect engineers to be inflexible and demanding. The truth, as any reasonable person might expect, is considerably more nuanced and at the end of the day, the fates of designers and developers are forever intertwined.
Scheduled on Friday from 18:40 to 19:40 in Room 3
