Speaking at the conference

Taking GitHub to New Heights

Join an inspiring cross-disciplinary behind the scenes look at how GitHub designed and built the GitHub globe, their new homepage, and their refreshed brand. Follow along as we go from the drawing board to Figma, prototyping, testing, and the final launch, and study how a wide array of talents can come together to become their best selves through their differences.
