Originally from Ukraine, Victoria currently lives in Berlin, and designs things at GitHub. Her areas of focus are product design and design infrastructure. As an immigrant and a self-taught designer, she shares her experiences as a way to give back to the design community.
Victoria will open the discussion with Open source and Design.
The design community has undergone a rapid transformation in its recent years. Our tools and new ways of working are changing how we design and collaborate. With this shift we have an opportunity to democratize design.
The idea of design open source has been around for a while. But does it live up to our expectations?
In this talk we’ll take a detour into the history of open source, and draw parallels and distinctions between open source in software and design. We’ll look at our community’s past, its present, and possibilities for a better future.
