Hey there!
As the subject suggests, I’ve got six cool links and one cool event to share.
The six cool links
  1. How Spotify runs remote Design Sprints
  2. How Dropbox and Microsoft run remote Design Sprints (also video)
  3. Why Facebook thinks remote Design Sprints improve teamwork
  4. A not-new-but-still-neat case study about how Headspace used Design Sprints to create “Headspace for Kids”
  5. Julie Zhuo (author of The Making of a Manager) wants to help match designers with startups, and if you’re either one of those and interested you can find out more here
  6. An in-depth article about the user interface of those LEGO bricks that look like computers
The cool event, which is this week!
This Wednesday, Aug 20 I’m doing a keynote at the iToday online conference. It was originally gonna be in Lausanne, but as you may have heard, in-person events are sooooo 2019. Anyway, I’ve got a new version of my Design Sprint talk, which includes a bit about scrambled eggs that I’m very proud of. And the whole conference looks awesome. There are great speakers like Alex Osterwalder, Ramatoulaye Diallo, and Kai Haley. The organizers are my friends Design Sprint Ltd of Switzerland, who’ve done a bunch of hard work to turn what was supposed to be a big in-person conference into a thoughtfully crafted online event including chats with speakers, video replay, and more. You can get tickets here. Readers of this newsletter get a 20% discount with the code JAKEFRIENDS. I hope to see you there!
Thanks for reading, and all the best this week. :)
