Elizabeth Churchill, Director of UX at Google will share insights about how Google uses the Material Design system to effectively scale UX. Design systems reduce replicated work, improve designer / developer collaboration and are a critical part of creating consistent user experiences across a range of products. Elizabeth will give a little history of HCI & UX and then introduce Google's Material Design, Google’s design system and share with us how Google is evaluating the effectiveness of the Material Design System for designers, developers, and end users.
