Hello, I’m a student and junior designer that came across Open Source Design during my research for a design thesis. I read an article, “Open source design needs better collaboration tools” and was deeply interested in the subject. I noticed though that this was written in 2017, and now I wonder - is there still a need for better collaboration tools between developers and designers for OSS? Is the design/development process still mostly fragmented? What has changed since? I want to open this discussion to any active developers and designers and hear your thoughts. This is all very new to me, and I would love to learn more about collaboration in general. Let’s talk
