The O'Reilly Design Conference 2016 in San Francisco

Not your typical design conference

Join us at an uncommon gathering for those who understand—and want to learn more about—the force design exerts in shaping a better world. Enhance your skills and expand your knowledge with hands-on training and workshops, informative demonstrations, and inspiring and practical presentations from more than 70 design innovators. The program will encompass three major themes:

  • The new fundamentals – From prototyping for connected devices, designing secure experiences, and UX for the Internet of Things to industrial design, information architecture, and user research, you’ll gain a solid foundation for taking your skills to the next level.
  • Design and business – Selling your design, designing for conversion and performance, leadership, branding, metrics and analytics - master the topics that will enable you to play a crucial role in your organization’s success.
  • Design for a greater good – Learn how design can have positive social impact in such areas as education, government, healthcare, sustainability, and more for the good of the global community.

Design doesn’t stand still. Neither should you.
