  • Tammie Lister: Product Design Through Stories

    Tammie Lister: Product Design Through Stories

    WordCamp US 2018Speaker: Tammie Lister

    December 30, 2018 — Stories are powerful and a part of our genetic DNA. Stories in products can be used as fuel to power creation. The experience itself is a story and it’s important to craft the narrative. By understanding the stories of those interacting with the product, you can guide, support and even change their narrative from a tragedy to a happily ever after. In this talk I will show how to use stories in your day to day work. Start seeing the stories, learn ways to tell the stories to others. By putting stories at the heart of everything you do, you experience will improve and everyone will have a better time.

  • Tammie Lister: People source

    Tammie Lister: People source

    WordCamp Bristol 2017Speaker: Tammie Lister

    October 14, 2018 — Every open source project is made up of more than code.

    It’s more than pixels, more than binary. People create the code, craft the experience, test and support.

    To keep a community healthy we need to recognise the people behind the text.

    Open source really is people source and the trouble is we keep forgetting that.

    This talk is part call to action and part wake up call, lets start thanking rather than following a dramatic hashtag.

    Lets start caring for the people that are our source.
