IxDA Seattle is happy to announce the second event for The Other User series. We will be co-hosting with {Interact} for this event so we're counting on a good mix and a good turn out. We hope you can join us!

Event Description

In Part 2 of The Other User series, Cathie Toshach, an interaction designer, will share her experience and insights for creating a successful handoff between design and development. 

Faced with developers struggling to connect the requirements in wireframes to those in technical documents, Cathie began working with technical stakeholders to develop a single, integrated document. She found this approach helped to reduce inconsistencies and risks while improving collaboration and review cycles. Cathie will share the challenges and benefits of working on a shared document as well as several practical tools and methods for increasing efficiency and collaboration.

Following the presentation be prepared for a hearty Q&A session with the audience. This event isn't only about Cathie sharing her experiences it's also a chance for the audience to pitch in their challenges and solutions. We'll be interested in hearing what works and doesn't work in agency, corporate, and startup environments as well as different development cycles.
