Developers and designers sometimes have a hard time working together on a project, because they don’t completely understand each other and what the other does. This session will be for developers who are, ever have, or will work with a graphic designer or design team. I will discuss the different types of designers and what their roles are (UI, UX), and how to communicate with them effectively. If time permits, I will also give a few tips on designing if a developer does not have a designer to work with.
