1 year of the Sustaining open source design podcast

What key themes emerged from 1 year and 17 episodes of design in open source podcasts?
<p>The Sustaining open source design podcast has been hosting conversations about open source and design over the last year with designers of all kinds across the spectrum of open source software projects. From new to open source to long term contributors and from practicing visual designers to design researchers. We've spent over 30 hours in conversation with designers and we are coming together as hosts to discuss the main themes throughout these conversations in 2021 at FOSDEM 2022 with a look ahead to what might come up in 2022 for design in OSS.</p> <p>This will be a conversation between hosts of the SOS design podcast: Eriol Fox, Georgia Bullen, Memo Esparza, Peace Omejeh and Richard Littuar</p> <p>https://sosdesign.sustainoss.org/</p>

<p>A design system helps contributors create consistent user experiences. To elevate from a collection of patterns to a system, you need to provide clear standards and reasoning. Clear and comprehensive documentation helps you put this system together into something everyone can use.</p> <p>This talk will go through how we open sourced the documentation for the <a href="https://orbit.kiwi/">Orbit design system</a> and discuss what we learned from the process. It will discuss creating both visual ...

<p>At FOSDEM 2021, we shared an introduction to, and the ambitions of, the Bitcoin Design Community. 6 months into the effort, we were brimming with ideas and big goals for designing amazing user experiences, connecting designers with open-source projects, and lots more. Now, one year later, we’d like to look back and share where we are, what has worked for us, and what hasn’t (yet?).</p>

<p>So you’ve done some user testing or usability testing as an open source software team and now you have interesting user insights collected. But...what do you do with it? How does user feedback correspond to issues in the backlog? How do you get the wider OSS community team up to speed if they haven’t been part of the synthesis process? These are some of the questions you may ask yourself after participating in user testing or usability testing. You’re ready for a synthesis process!</p> ...

<p>A lot of UX practitioners don't talk to users on a regular basis, at Penpot we might be on the opposite side of the spectrum. We gather a lot of feedback from our users. What for? Fixing (bugs), improving (enhancements), discovering (new needs), prioritizing (asking/frequent queries as an indicator). And the most important thing is what do we do with that feedback and which kind of feedback would we like to receive?</p>

<p>Software has become increasingly central to scientific research. Both software development and its use are essential activities for scientific teams. But investment in its production, maintenance, and adoption is often overlooked, and academia often fails to leverage best practices for software engineering from industry, the open source community, or elsewhere. Furthermore, investment in the user experience (UX) and usability of scientific software is largely an afterthought, if considered at ...

<p>Two designers came together to tackle this under-addressed issue in OSS. In this talk, we'll cover - How design principles have shaped our understanding of the technical challenges in implementing accessibility in OSS, such as writing 'alt-text' for scientific diagrams - Learn about the real impact our workshops have made in NumPy, JupyterLab and scikit-learn - How other OSS projects can host their own accessibility workshops and sprints</p>
