    WordCamp Sacramento 2016Speaker: Ozzy Rodriguez

    January 3, 2017 — It all starts with a vision, a designer’s dream. There are no limits. It’s a developer’s job to bring that vision to reality. There are some limits. If a designer doesn’t know, understand or acknowledge they exist, it can make for a not so cool end result or work experience. By discovering where a developer is coming from, together, we can make design great again!

  • John Maeda: Computational Design and Inclusion

    John Maeda: Computational Design and Inclusion

    WordCamp US 2016Speaker: John Maeda

    December 12, 2016 — Products and services can be designed to be exclusive or inclusive — it’s a conscious choice, and it’s often about the traditional tradeoffs of quality, price, and deadlines to achieve greater margins and profitability. However, computational products and services have ushered in a new world where we can now ship products instantaneously at marginal costs close to zero — which brings unprecedented and immediate accessibility to the largest total addressable market imaginable via the Internet. It means that the nature of design needs to change, and also the way we think of *who* we are designing for needs to change. I’ve just begun this journey within the WordPress universe, and I’ll be sharing what I’ve gathered thus far on how more inclusive approaches to design are the key to better designed products and service in tech.

    December 11, 2016 — Sometimes it seems like the world is full of experiences designed for robots not the humans that use them. Experiences that leave us frustrated, lost and disconnected. That are almost designed to bring out the worst human traits. Shouldn’t we really be focused on creating experiences that connect with users?

    Experiences that move, that enable, that allow us to be the best humans we can be. In this talk I’ll look at the problem of design that isn’t created for humans and offer some insight into how we can begin to design for humans not robots.
