   Bridging the gap between design & development


Methodology & Culture
Methodology & Culture
Intermediate level

Working in interdisciplinary teams is no longer a rarity. In this talk we will cover different ways how design & development teams can improve their collaboration, learn from best practices & failures, and see how the role of a UX Engineer helps to bridge the gap between design and development. Don’t miss this talk, as we will learn from concrete do’s and don’ts of how devs and designers can improve their collaboration.

What will be covered in this talk:

  • Short insights into my personal story: transition from Software Engineer to Frontend to UX Engineer.
  • What works and what doesn't: classic software development, agile teams, small vs. large teams.
  • What UX Engineers do: taking concepts from concept to go live.
  • Seeing the big picture: Dev–UX–PM–Business. Building the right tool to solve the right problem for the right reason.
  • Making a difference: How all of us can learn from this approach, also if you do not work at the intersection of design & development.

From can't be named

Half techie, half visual thinker. Lukas feels most comfortable at the intersection of design and development. He's was always fascinated by how people collaborate and make something big happen. Already during his studies he combined Computer Science with Communication Science and HCI. Following this approach, he's worked as a software engineer for a few years and has switched to the UX Design Team, where he again has the opportunity to combine the best of both worlds. What motivates Lukas is the vision to develop new and meaningful products, to work in teams that outgrow their own capabilities, and to work on meaningful products that actually solve users’ needs. In his free time he loves to be outdoors and to explore the unknown.
