Videoconference: The Next Generation in DesignOps Toolsets

Session Details

Ask any DesignOps practitioner to name their “go-to” tool and you’re likely to hear them wax poetically of their love for spreadsheets. We get it – the spreadsheet is a reliable workhorse with a number of tricks up its sleeve. But, it’s not the only game in town. In fact, if you haven’t ventured outside of Excel lately, you may be surprised to learn that there are a number of nifty new tools in town, and we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you to get a taste of what they can do.

In this month’s DesignOps Community Call, we’ll hear from DesignOps Community Curator Farid Sabitov and Design Operations Lead for Kin + Carta Europe, Scott Stephens as they dive into two tools that have been gaining popularity among  DesignOps pros, with Farid sharing some of his experiences as an early adopter and avid user of Coda, while Scott will relate insights derived using Notion organization-wide, both internally and with clients.

Farid and Scott plan to offer real world examples of how DesignOps practitioners just like you are using these tools to optimize integrated knowledge bases and design more scalable systems. This is your chance to hear from power users of these tools, so come ready to ask questions and get a true picture of how these newer entries to the market stack up against your favorite toolsets.
