Join us at the first „FOSS Backstage Design“

Dear Open Source Design-community,

we would be thrilled to welcome you at our new event FOSS Backstage Design! You might remember the project from this thread.
At FOSS Backstage Design we want to take a deep dive into UX Design in free and open source software.The one day event takes place on March 6th, the day after FOSS Backstage, in Berlin at the Wikimedia Germany office.

The program

The single track event features 13 sessions from 16 international speakers who will be presenting on topics such as: design methods, user research, how to incorporate Design into product development, writing good documentation, testing and measuring usability and even how to design for XR leveraging the power of OSS tools.

We will kick off the event with a keynote by Aparna Sundar in which she will share her experience on how to increase the human element in open source software. Aparna will discuss the ways in which software engineers or developers, designers, community and product managers can adopt and incorporate research practices in software design.

In addition to our amazing line-up of speakers and sessions there will be plenty of space and opportunity to exchange ideas, discuss challenges and meet other people who care deeply about designing for great user experience
