Design contributions to OSS: Learnings from the Open Design workshops project

Open Design is a collaboration between Adobe, Designit and Ushahidi. Looking at increasing and sustaining design contribution to open source and advocating for OSS in design, and design in OSS.
In this keynote, we’ll briefly cover the history of the project and the main problems we attempted to solve, looking into some the abstract deeper motivations for design professionals to contribute and we’ll present the learning and adaptions to our workshop framework and methodology that aims to engage design teams and individuals that are not yet ‘on-board’ with OSS as an ethos or movement.

You'll leave with a better understanding of the way that Ushahidi engaged with designers globally through the workshops to widen the contributions to include design with access to the open repository where these resources, frameworks and learnings are documented.
