About Converge

To join in the celebrations surrounding World Design Systems Week, zeroheight will be hosting a one-day conference on design systems, with a special focus around our theme ‘Building Bridges’.

Converge aims to bring together some of the brightest and best in design systems and designops to discuss the challenges we face in taking design systems to the next level.

In terms of topics, the Converge speakers are a mix of designers, developers and content specialists, talking about the ways we can improve how we do design systems, from treating your designops team like an API to the problem with contribution models to instilling the right culture.

Tickets are priced at £50, and we are also offering a select number of Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship tickets for under-represented folks in tech.
