This presentation covers an introduction to the principles of Collaborative Design. It was presented at the phpDay2009 in Verona, the focus therefore is web-development. The ideas presented though apply to any area of work where artefacts are created in teams.
The original abstract:
Any application contains many different elements of design, from application architecture to the display on the screen. Whenever an application is planned and/or implemented by a team Collaborative Design is inevitably an integral part of the process. This session explores the dynamics of Collaborative Design and the risks and chances it poses.
