Event description

Description

Let’s face it, integrating good design into a development project is hard. Developer-centric processes leave design as an afterthought and miss opportunities for design to affect the product. Design should come first as it shapes the vision and clarifies the outcomes. But clickable prototypes and other mock processes are expensive and still often failure during handoff and implementation.

At Alchemy Code Lab, an advanced software engineering program and consultancy, our graduates employ the Design Driven Development (DDD) process while building apps for clients in our AppLab. Our approach to DDD seeks to connect design and development by creating real code assets that clarify intent and drive a tested approach to subsequent development. DDD is an Agile-based process that enables more efficient software development because it flows from a foundation of design.

Using a specific set of steps, Alchemy senior AppLab developers will show you how to build HTML and CSS artifacts in a ReactJS app that incorporate static data samples in the application code base. This allows rapid collaboration, execution and validation between designers and developers. Once the features are correct, they are pinned as tests, allowing developers to evolve the same code into a dynamically data-driven environment.

Join Alchemy Code Lab for an event celebrating the promise and possibilities of Design Driven Development. We’ll explain the process, discuss how it differs from other common approaches, present some live examples, and save time for you to chime in or ask questions.

6:00PM to 6:30PM: Open house, networking, food and beverage // 6:30PM to 7:30PM DDD discussion including Q&A // 8PM Additional networking
