2019 Drupaldelphia

Driving Strategy with Human Centered Design

Great websites are made before a line of code is ever written.  By developing strategies in collaboration with our clients, powered by insights about users, we lay the groundwork for transformative possibilities.

This talk will focus on such strategies, and identify how applying them can:

  • accelerate innovation fueled by a common vision
  • intentionally align key stakeholder needs
  • reduce risk and lower costs through early alignment

Design Systems for the Web

At Eastern Standard, we’ve spent several years refining our approach to the design and implementation of content-rich websites, transitioning away from “templates” and toward modular components that can be combined, re-used, and updated as needs change. This presentation will provide an overview of what we've learned through that process, with concise, actionable takeaways for those who:

a) want to start using a systems-based approach to design, or

UX Field Research Basics

With the speed at which technology is changing, field research offers understanding into how products can impact the lives of your customers. Regardless if it’s your first or hundredth time, conducting field research is a daunting task. Planning and conducting field research is a juggling act between preparation, interview skills, and synthesis. In this talk, I’ll share some of the soft skills and key principles involved in any researcher’s toolkit and explore lessons learned from the three main stages of conducting field studies:

 

Content Migration Strategy: A Tale of Two Websites

When designing and building a website, too often companies deprioritize content. So it's no surprise that a top reason why site launches are delayed is because content is not ready.

What does it look like for content to go from an afterthought to a requirement? And, what happens during a website migration when developers, desginers, and content strategists collaborate effectively?

Intro to Accessibility

Accessibility is not just a hot topic, but an essential consideration of any web development project. 

In this session, we will cover:

Becoming an Ally for A11y

Approaching accessibility from the start of a project can greatly impact usability. From initial wireframing to entering content in a CMS, there are many ways to plan for and implement a fully inclusive website: color contrast can be measured before any CSS is written, heading structures can be mapped before any markup is created. Messy navigation patterns can be reconsidered before a menu structure is built. When accessibility is valued as an essential part of the user experience, everyone can help make it easier to implement.

 

Semantic Site Building

I'd like to help you think about the art of designing a Drupal data structure and interface.

Making Drupal Friendly for Editors and Clients

Drupal’s extensibility allow us to create the perfect CMS for our organizations. But too often the same level of design is not considered when building out the editorial interfaces. The default tools are often scary for first-time Drupalers and include confusing words like ‘nodes’, ‘taxonomy’, and ‘blocks’. Making Drupal friendly for clients means checking internal jargon at the door and building interfaces that are intuitive and distraction free. Topics include:

All for Web and Web for All: Moving Toward Accessibility Compliance

The accessible web, it's not just for avoiding lawsuits anymore. What makes a site accessibilitiy compliant? How can we get there - and why should we bother? This session will provide a foundation in accessibility concepts and guidance in leveraging that foundation into organizational change, where everyone who touches the site remains aware of accessibility issues. Join us in the quest for WCAG 2.0 AA Compliance!

What’s new in WCAG 2.1?

WCAG 2.0 was published a decade ago, which is an eternity in Internet years. This past June, the W3 released WCAG 2.1. These new guidelines focus on improving accessibility for users with cognitive disabilities and for users who browse websites on mobile devices, like tablets and smartphones. So what does that mean for you?

In this session, we’ll answer questions like:

Techniques for Designing with Drupal 8

Designing for the web is complicated. Endless screen sizes, high user expectations, and usability challenges offer up some interesting if not impossible challenges for web designers, especially when wrestling with complex functionality delivered by Drupal. Join this detailed discussion on web design and designing Drupal 8 websites.

Visual Regression Testing: How Could You Be So Sure?

Visual regression testing can help cut down on QA time and effort while adding a level of precision to pattern development and stylesheet refactoring. Are you dedicating valuable mental energy towards manually testing for unexpected defects in the parts of the app where you're not actively working? Do you find it hard to believe that this kind of information could be ascertained simply by looking at a picture? Come review case studies geared towards front-end and full-stack developers seeking to incorporate frameworks like PhantomCSS, BackstopJS, or Wraith into their testing toolkit.

Content Authoring UX and Flexible Design Systems

Content authors are your users, too. With the growing presence of flexible/modular/pattern-based designs, how can you create an intuitive, inviting CMS that will thrive long after the project is done? This session looks at how to collaborate with the folks who will be in the CMS day after day. We’ll cover:

 

  • Naming things
  • Content patterns and visual patterns
  • How to make abstractions concrete
  • How to get content authors to practice with the CMS while you build it
