Bridge the Gap
As a part of DCFemTech’s October Tour De Code and a partnership between DCFemTech, Women Who Code, and AIGA DC, this panel aims to bridge the gap between developers and designers through conversation, discovery, and a hands-on workshop.
We’ll start off with an interactive panel discussion where developer and designer pairs will analyze existing designs and discuss their thoughts; this discussion will present perspectives from both development and design backgrounds. Then we will break out into four roundtable discussion groups, each of which will discuss the following:
- Getting started on creating your portfolio
- Designers helping developers on the best way to design their portfolio
- Developers helping designers get their portfolio up on the web
- Creating accessible designs
