Open source encourages collaboration between communities and individuals to create the best solutions possible while leveraging the diverse experiences and skills of everyone involved. So why not apply these same principles to the design process? This talk will introduce the audience to tools and methods on how to apply open source principles to their own design process. The first step we will cover is the initial setting up of a design GitHub repository and starting to add design artifacts to it. Next we will talk about applying open source methods to the research phase. We will talk about using open communication channels like mailing lists and Reddit to recruit research participants and conduct research activities like surveys. We will also talk about some examples of open source design tools you can use to create mockups and how you can share your designs with the community for feedback and iterate. How can you as a contributor apply some of these methods to your design process?
