Latest Highlight: Presenting at Figma Config 2023 with Yuhki Yamashita

I gave a really fun talk with Yuhki Yamashita (Figma CPO) at on Rituals of Modern Product Teams. Yuhki’s been very involved in the rituals research. He’s contributed a number of rituals to the book, and has been an active editor on the early drafts as well.

The way we created the talk turned out to be quite fun as well. Yuhki’s skills in Figma are (no surprise) pretty insane, and I think Yuhki got a sense for my unique process for writing talks in Coda.
