Process Hacker News for October 16, 2017

I started publishing Hack the Process as a podcast last year to gather and share insights from people who’ve managed to get over the hurdle of going from an idea to putting something real out into the world. One of the things I learned along the way was how helpful it can be to curate regular lists of inspiring publications and services. And since I’ve been following our growing community of Process Hackers, here are some of their recent updates you might appreciate. Check out what they’re working on, and please be sure to let them know what you think by offering your feedback.

Design as a Communications Skill with Jina Bolton on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 20

Jina Anne (formerly Bolton) has gone from web design to web engineering and back again, so she understands what it takes to establish Design standards for a project and make them attractive, both visually and technically. In addition, Jina’s talent for evangelizing has helped make her Lightning Design System for Salesforce popular both inside the company and across the open source community. Hear how she built on her community organizing skills, and went from hosting local meetups to creating Clarity, a conference all about Design Systems. Jina will tell us how organized a small team to line up speakers, solicit sponsors, and get the word out, all while still holding down a full-time job, and managing her own open source projects on the side.
