Event description

It can be a UX designer’s dream: Your engineering lead comes to you and declares “This app has too much debt and it’s slowing us down. We’re going to rewrite the entire thing in a new technology.” Suddenly you have an enthusiastic partner who will solve their need (speed of development) while enabling a higher quality experience. The future looks bright, and…maybe …you can sneak in some UX improvements now.

Every UX designer will someday face the challenge of designing through a tech rewrite with a team of engineers, pm’s, and inquisitive execs. We recently went through such a tech rewrite at Shipt, and we want to help other designers learn from our experience.

This workshop will help you develop a framework for leading the design work during this process, resulting in a successful launch for you, your company, and your users. We will explore how to:

– weigh business and schedule risks so “no” isn’t the only answer to design additions
– create, prioritize, and evangelize designs for the rewrite, including a design language system
– track the crazy amount of detailed design work being done
– keep stakeholders in the loop and sell continued investment
