Examples of previous talks:

  • Exploring and Integrating UX in Open Source Software Development

    http://events.linuxfoundation.org/sites/events/files/slides/ApacheCon_EU_2016_victoria_bondarchuk_0.pdf

    The importance of introducing usability activities into free open source software development has been acknowledged in the research and by the community, yet FOSS products have been criticized for having little or no emphasis on usability. The decentralized and engineering-driven approach of open source projects can conflict with usability methodologies. We will review existing cases of UX design contribution to open source projects, discuss how designers can become part of the community and what engineers can do to improve usability of the software they build.

  • Exploring how designer can contribute to Open Source

    http://2016.fossasia.org/schedule/#2016-03-20-design-vr-3d

    This talk consist of two parts: At first, we will give a review of existing academic research on usability and open source culture, as well as some beginning steps on how to make a start in contributing to OSS projects. Then an open discussion will follow: - How to choose what project you want to work on? - Where to find a project? - What you have to know to make your first contribution? This discussion is open for everyone: designers, researchers, developers.

  • When Cultures Clash Integrating UX with FOSS Development

    https://fosdem.org/2017/schedule/event/osd_when_cultures_clash/

    The importance of usability activities in free open source software development has been acknowledged in the research literature and practice. However the decentralized and engineering-driven approach of open source projects can conflict with UX methodologies. As these cultures merge developers and designers may be exposed to situations where the values clash. We will review existing academic papers on UX in open source and discuss how these two philosophies can co-exist in OSS development and how designers can become part of the open source community.
