"Designers still use shockingly manual and even arcane methods of managing versions." —Khoi Vinh, Principal Designer at Adobe
Data corruption? Collaboration collisions? Files with names likepresentation-for-client-FINAL-FINALREALLY.psd? Developers have benefitted from sophisticated version control tools for decades, but the state-of-the-art has always lagged behind for designs and their tools. Healthy version control eliminates unnecessary file management problems, secures your work, and helps take collaboration to the next level.
In this talk, JPB takes a tour through the history of version control, state-of-the-art options including open-source options like Git and commercial offerings from companies like Dropbox, Adobe, and InVision, and delves into best practices to help teams work better together, and help designers, product owners, and UXers stay sane in an age of overflowing digital file cabinets.
Learning Outcomes:
  • - The history and benefits of version control,
  • - How to use choose among many version control options for design and UX,
  • - How version control can protect your UX and design work,
  • - How version control can aid in collaboration among design teams as well as teams which include developers,
  • - The basics of how to use various types of version control, with a special hands-on emphasis on Git (which, while primarily meant for development, can also be used for design).
