Who can rightfully claim the definition of such a broad concept?
The notion first came into my consciousness in 2013, while designing a visual editor for creating enterprise software applications. The industry had a vision for delivering software faster to better respond to customer needs. They called this Continuous Delivery.
It soon occurred to me: “If delivering software is accelerated, then designing it will have to stay in step. Faster seamless delivery calls for faster seamless design. How would this affect product designers?“.
