A Guide To Hassle-Free Designer-Developer Collaboration
LIVE on Thursday 27 Jan 2022 at 4 PM UTC, Master Class Webinar with Szymon Adamiak
Designers and developers share a common goal — to do what’s best for the user and for the business. But the day-to-day realities of their collaboration aren’t so clear-cut and idyllic.
Ask any designer or developer and they’ll tell you of bad experiences they had working with “the other side”. So let’s face it: when designers and developers work together, conflicts, friction and mutual struggles do occur. But why does this happen, and what can you do to mitigate them?
While there’s no single solution, surprisingly simple things like improved processes, diligent practices and empathetic communication can go a long way in improving collaboration.
To help you collaborate better with your team, the Interaction Design Foundation is hosting a LIVE Master Class webinar with Szymon Adamiak of Hype4. Join us on Thursday, 27 January 2022 at 4:00 PM UTC to learn practical tips for smooth designer-developer relationships.
