    CHIFOO Event: Designers Stop Learning Code; Coders Stop Learning Design

    New Relic

    CHIFOO presents "Designers Stop Learning Code; Coders Stop Learning Design: A Better Solution to Improving Team (mis)Communication." with James Stone, James Stone Consulting!

    Most designers may have heard something like, “learn to code like your life depends on it”. Some days it looks like everyone is searching for the mythical unicorn designer/developer. While individuals like this do exist that can cross disciplines, in general, this advice is misguided. Bad for you, bad for your team, and bad for your organization.

    About the Speaker

    James Stone (@JAMESSTONEco) is an award-winning web designer and a top contributor to ZURB Foundation. He has written for UX Pin and ZURB University and is an Adjunct Professor of Art at Penn State's School of Visual Art. He has presented at TEDxPSU, Harvard University Extension School, and the HTML5 Dev Conference.

    CHIFOO Event: Inclusion Before Diversity: Creating a Culture of Learning and Encouraging Getting it Wrong

    New Relic

    CHIFOO presents "Inclusion Before Diversity: Creating a Culture of Learning and Encouraging Getting it Wrong" with Ivana McConnell, Senior UI/UX Designer at Customer.io!

    Why tech companies should focus on achieving inclusion first, attending to employees’ specific self-care needs in order to create a platform for diversity to flourish, and better software made. People are chaotic, and product design has to account for them— this is challenging, and often solved by doing research and testing.

    About the Speaker Ivana (@IvanaMcConnell) was born in Sarajevo to a civil engineer-turned-translator and a UN Logistics Officer-turned-software engineer. She arrived in Vancouver via Croatia, Scotland, and Toronto, and has previously made a living as a rock climbing instructor and video game tester. These days she’s a senior UX designer at Customer.io, and is most interested in the intersections of technology, identity, and data.
