: Hosting for IT projects and their co-developmentThe problem
hosting itself is an excellent platform in terms of collaboration, where millions of developers, designers, product managers work and solve problems together. Nevertheless, the company faced the same problem as many others - GitHub employees work on a remote basis, and it was necessary to create conditions when people collaborate with each other just like they do when they are in the office. In addition, it was necessary to optimize the work processes, since there was no documentation, the templates were outdated, and the designers did not have a unified system - they recreated the same components over and over again.How Figma helped
: To solve these problems, with the help of Figma, the company created a unified design system and began to document work processes. Also, thanks to the combination of Figma and its API, the issue with iterations and updates was resolved when GitHub users needed to make changes to their projects. From now on, the need to find and install other software that would update files has disappeared. And of course, the feedback process has accelerated, because with the help of a single link all employees could view or edit certain files in real-time.
At the moment, all GitHub employees already consider Figma to be part of their culture and cannot do without this tool.
