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. You can find out more about Material Design at
