Designing to change it all

Designing processes and designing some products on the way...

Winfried Tilanus
At the ‘SamenBeter’ project we firmly believe a good product is a product that improves how people work. So we start with designing the change we want before we even start thinking about a product. How that looks in practice? Come and see, but be prepared for a fast ride!

Is it possible to design a radical change in the healthcare system? Why is the first product we build for that an authorization standard? Why are we talking about the ‘personality of a system’? How come the people designing it ended up in community centres, playing a game about privacy with the visitors? What is that ‘developer journey’ we are talking about? why are we making such a big fuss about a license nobody seems to read?

The ‘SamenBeter’ project has a moderate goal: to change healthcare, all of it. And because we are fuelled with design thinking, we are making deliberate design choices about everything. About what we want to change in healthcare, about the process of getting there, about the role of technology, about the values the technology should adhere, about the way we should develop the technology, about the way the technology will be adapted and about how the community should be developed.

In this talk I will showcase the SamenBeter project as example of how design is about much more then user interfaces. It is about designing processes, user interactions and designing the adaptation of the product itself. And last but not least: why did we take the effort to design everything and not just a product? Yes, it is too much to fit in one talk, so fasten your seatbelts!

As designers working with Libre/Open Source software, we have a strong opinion on how tools shape practice. And as designers, in general, we care deeply about our methods, workflows, principles and licenses. For some time now we've been debating the issue of terminology: how we describe our practice to others and how free/libre software terms and ideas can be integrated into design methods. In this talk, we want to propose an exercise in labeling. Building up from conversations we had with other ...

This talk discusses some theories from architectural discourse which attempt to solve problems which required critical and creative thinking. It is interesting to see the overflows and overlaps of theories between design(architecture) and construction(engineering) to solving similar underlying problems. The lengthy history of the field throws up some interesting references and may expose some ideas which might be applicable in new age design+engineering problems.

MuseScore is the world's most popular sheet music program. It is used by millions of musicians around the world, including many who are blind, partially sighted, or who struggle to use a traditional mouse-based interface. In this presentation, we share our experience in making a popular open source program accessible to keyboard and screen reader control.

Gitflow design as mentioned in the description is a git workflow for designers and design work. It's meant to be open, platform-agnostic and help minimise dependencies on proprietary software and help to increase collaboration. By using git, we get to take advantage of a lot of useful features available such as controlled access, review process, feedback system, version control files, preview changes in context with side-by-side diffs, detailed history of changes and more, something developers ...
