Get to know the research, development and implementation process of Red Hats UX solution.

The presentation will demonstrate how the framework PatternFly was created and applied to the Open Source projects Aerogear and FeedHenry. It’ll also show the importance of design consistency across different products within a compony.

This session will show:

  • The design process to build PatternFly
  • How to adapt Bootstrap to the reality of one company.
  • Why design consistency is so important.
  • And a live coding demo showing Bootstrap basics and PatternFly structure.

At the end of the talk people will get to know the importance of a common UI to achieve a good user experience, and get to know the challenges of building an enterprise UX framework. The goal of this presentation is not to show Bootstrap or PatternFly, but to take them as an example of how to build a design guideline for any company.
