Fitting user focussed design methodologies into a development process needn't be difficult. Our objectives as UX practitioners, as designers, as developers, as product owners etc are the same - to build the best possible thing in the time we have and within budget. The difficulties that surround projects are often much more to do with communication and process than they are about the differences between the disciplines. As well as adding dimension to UX discovery, thinking about what we are building as separate and connected objects, and particularly the exercise that I share in this session, can be really helpful in building a foundation for better communication and collaboration across team, discipline and organisation(s).

Freelance Frontend Developer, Mentor and future Digital Nomad. Longs for the day when jazzy Myspace HTML profiles were a thing.
After spending many years working with Creative Agencies, I needed a change. I have been working with Street Support (https://streetsupport.net) as the Lead Frontend Developer to help the homeless in Manchester by providing an easy to use directory of services, collecting pledges of support from local businesses to aid the homeless and a platform for giving help.
This talk will discuss the open source frontend technology used, the process of working on a team who have never worked together before, the problems, and the solutions discovered.
