Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Video Ristretto: Building a ubiquitous design language with components – Michael Taranto

Michael TarantoOne of the very exciting aspects of this year’s Summit conference is going back to the two day, two-tracks format that is so popular with many of our attendees.

What this does is allow multiple members of the same team working in different disciplines to attend the same event and see how all their efforts knit together. Summit really is a coming together of the web tech / digital tribes. Which is why our Video Ristretto today is particularly apt.

At Respond 17, Michael Taranto from SEEK gave a compelling talk that focused on how components might be a way of ensuring that designers and engineers use the same language, to make sure their efforts work together and not against one another.

It sounds a simple plan, and in some ways it really is. The great thing about Michael’s talk is that it focuses on solutions, on how to do it, rather than just describing the problems and asking the questions. Definitely worth half an hour or so of your time. And then consider how much more like this you’ll get at Summit this year.
