Subject: Let's have a user experience workshop
Date: Tue, 15 Mar 2022 14:04:09 -0700	[thread overview]

Hello Git,

I’m doing a 20% project with the Git Core team at Google. I've been
encouraged by Emily Shaffer and Jonathan Nieder to reach out to the
Git community to help incorporate UX practices into the Git
development cycle. My goal is to 1) gauge interest in improving Git's
user experience and 2) recruit interested folks in organizing or
attending a workshop where you can learn more about what UX is and
discuss ways to bake UX into the process of making changes to Git to
improve the experience for all users.

Some additional context about me: I am a UX (user experience)
professional at Google. I have experience applying UX and
accessibility practices[1] to developer tools for searching,
reviewing, debugging code, etc. For the past couple years I’ve worked
with the Golang project on their websites and helped set project
priorities by collecting community feedback through their annual
developer survey[2].

Interested?
* Join the git UX Google group (https://groups.google.com/g/git-ux) if you
are interested in participating in an event.
* Reply directly to this email if you are interested in organizing the
event to discuss git UX (scheduling the event, sending invites,
communicating with invitees)
