Weeks ago, we heard Jan Six, Staff Product Designer at GitHub, talking about why design and engineering should work together from the start and work on the same goals, and how design tokens allowed them to do that.
Code + design + collaboration? That’s what Penpot is all about! Jan should take part in one of our Open Chats, we thought, he accepted our invitation and this is the result, the Open Chat #2, available on our YouTube channel!
We chatted with him about design tokens, the crossover between design & development roles and the types of tools and processes for a real collaboration.
This two-way interview format also led to talk about Penpot’s future plans and the fact that big mistakes turned out to be good decisions that shaped our platform in the end.
If listening to podcasts is more your style, check our iVoox and Spotify.
Oh, and by the way, we will be adding our episodes to open source alternatives.
