Event description

Description

The twelfth appointment of our monthly meetup will be with Tammie Lister (Experience Designer at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com) and Cristiano Rastelli (Front-End Engineer at Badoo and co-organiser of WEBdeLDN) .

This month we will have two talks linked by a common fil-rouge: storytelling. In fact, each talk is a story, told by a first-hand protagonist, of two big business-critical projects. The first one is about the complete redesign of one of the core parts of WordPress, the content editor (which involves UI/UX design, the introduction of a new tech stack, a very strict backward compatibility, and much more). The second one is about the introduction (by a developer!) of a design system in a design-driven company, and all the complexities, the failures (the "dragons") and the wins of this quest.

Getting to know Gutenberg

Gutenberg is the name for the new editor focus in WordPress. What is it? Why is it important? In this talk I will take you through a rough guide to the project. How it began and why it’s needed. Then, I’ll show you where the projects is currently at and finally how you can also get involved. Join me and get to know Gutenberg.

From zero to Cosmos

The unabridged story of how a small style guide that was first introduced under the radar, became so appreciated by both developers and designers that it made its way to become a complex project of unification - a design system called Cosmos.
