ArrrrCamp presentation design workflows for Rails

I’m at ArrrrCamp in Belgium for the weekend and just gave a presentation on “Design Workflows for Rails.”

Here’s the abstract:

“We’ve come a long way since the early days of Rails. And the entire Rails system, while much more robust, can be intimidating and downright frustrating for designers. In this talk we’ll discuss a couple of different strategies for integrating designers into your team and what you can do to optimize your current designer/developer workflow. We’ll be discussing a couple of tools that can assist you in this (including John’s very own Serve project). Along the way we will be talking a lot about the value of taking a design-first approach to software development and you will walk away with a number of practical approaches that you can apply to your current project even if you aren’t working with a designer.”
