Box Tech Talk: An Engineer's Pragmatic Guide to Design

by Braden Kowitz

A practical look at how the best engineering and design teams work.

How do you find great designers? What skills should they have? How do engineering and design processes differ, and how can you fit them together? How do you shape a culture where both engineers and designers work happily together?

We'll talk about all this, and any other questions you have about startups and design.

Food and drinks will be provided
