[Slides] DevConf 2018, Bengaluru : DesOps – Prepare Today for Future of Design (2018)

DesignOps is an approach to design inspired by the culture of DevOps. In this session, we will be touching upon the practical approaches on how to prepare for the next wave in design that compliments DevOps in the concepts of the cultural shift, collaboration, and automation. We will also see how to bringing the full circle of design in the context of software development lifecycle.

Topic: DesignOps – the Prepare Today for Future of Design!
Date & Time: 2:15PM – 2:45PM on 5 August 2018

[Slides] In Search of Truth: At the Crossroad of Critical Theory and Technology in DesOps World B.B.Autonomus College, Chandikhol (2018)

 

This is a paper presented by Samir Dash at Department of English, Baba Bhairabananda Autonomous Mahavidyalaya, Jajpur, Odisha (http://bbmchandikhole.org/) on 16 July 2018

This UGC seminar session was an attempt to understand, from a non-traditional lens, the relevance of critical theory in context to today’s ever-changing technology space that is moving towards the Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Distributed Computing, become much more important in history than ever, as it deals with softer aspects of human identity and socio-cultural dimension through communication or human expression.

This interactive session will have two major focus:

1. A brief overview of the critical theories from a diachronic lens that will be helping the students in grasping the fundamentals in a socio-cultural context.

2. A cross-discipline comparison with the modern design-driven practices in the software industry that would help the students understand the potential and opportunities in the real world scenario where these theories would help.

Introduction to DesOps: Design thinking as a way of life [Source: Open-Org]

A successor to DevOps would place design at the center of value creation. Call it “DesOps.”

In general, though, the tighter integration of design principles into all phases of development processes is becoming more common—something we might call “DesOps.” This mode of thinking, “Design Operations,” is a mindset that some believe might be the successor of the DevOps movement. In this article, I want to explain how open principles intersect with the DesOps movement…

DesOps is “DevOps 2.0” [Source: RHD Blog]

 

Any typical software product that is delivered involves many complex as well as divergent technologies, processes, people, and visions. Though software delivery mostly happens with team members segmented into two major groups—developers and designers—ultimately, the best outcome always depends on how the two teams communicate with each other and how efficiently their thoughts and ideas are shared, propagated, and translated.

DesOps – The Next Wave in Design [Source: RHD Blog]

DesOps, aka. DesignOps, refers to an approach to design that is inspired by the culture of DevOps. In this and the following posts, we will explore, the practical approaches for:

  • How to prepare for the next wave in design that compliments the DevOpsconcepts of a cultural shift, collaboration, and automation.
  • We will also see what solutions are available today that contribute to bringing the full circle of design in the context of the software development lifecycle.

DesOps Culture is Essentially a Culture of the Open Organization

Almost 18 years back, while being at a Arts collage with with specialization in Critical Theory, I was first introduced to the idea how multiple disciplines converge together, in order to make more meaningful contribution towards the areas like literature and poetry and films, which touches and excites human emotions and drive the values that our social existence depends upon. Those times, from Longinus’s Republic and Longinus’s Sublime toDerrida’s Deconstruction Theory, ignited the curiosity on how these overlapping insights can help bridging things and needs in real world…

… With recent software delivery processes, for example, the Agile process and Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD)of code, the DevOps approach provided a faster highway to ensure faster delivery with low risks. So the earlier SDLC model got redefined over time with Agile and then with DevOps to its current shape.

However, because design is an integral part of any product delivered, there is a need to ensure that gaps are bridged between the traditional design lifecycle and the fast track of the DevOps development lifecycle. DesOps and DevOps both are complementary to each other. The design delivery process improvements try to optimize the overall delivery process and thereby contribute to DevOps, for example, in aspects such as testing of the product that involves design aspects, usability, accessibility, etc.

The need for tighter integration between the design team and the engineering team became a necessity to ensure to design at scale. During the past two to three years, the top five big companies have made heavy investments in this area that have paved the way for other organizations and design communities to be more explorative in this area…
