Prepare now to design the future

Designers are constantly asked to design for the future—a future that is, by its nature, a moving target. The O‚ÄôReilly Design Conference arms designers with the skills, connections, and inspiration to create the products and services of today and tomorrow. Get the knowledge and confidence to step up, own your place at the table, and remap your future.

The O’Reilly Design Conference: Redrawing the boundaries

Design shapes the future. This has always been true. But the impact of design is even more significant now—when the combination of design and technology is upending products, services, and the very nature of competition. Whatever your title, if you contribute to design decisions, you need to be prepared.

At the O'Reilly Design Conference, you'll learn about business, design, and technical topics of critical relevance. Interaction and UX designers, user researchers, product designers and managers, and entrepreneurs will share important lessons on how to make a lasting impact on your organization—and the world beyond—through design.

To prepare for a future in which the traditional boundaries of design are redrawn, you need to:

  • Embrace new methods, technologies, and interaction models while remaining focused on human-centered design
  • Drive a more inclusive definition of design that embraces diverse perspectives and disciplines
  • Explore the vast opportunities of your craft by adopting a growth mindset
  • Question the status quo to move forward and do better

Prepare yourself to make it happen. Join us at the O'Reilly Design Conference, taking place March 19-22, 2017 at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco. Take a look at the schedule and start making your plans today. Need help convincing your manager? We've got you covered.
