How we redesign apps live and talk about building great products at DGS

Our idea for this event has always been about focusing on actual quality work, with as little "jargon" and time wasting as possible. Once again we filled all the seats and delivered two presentations and a live redesign of a banking app.

Design Systems basics at DesignWays 2019 conference
