When designers and engineers meet sometimes is hard to get to a clear consensus because they have different backgrounds and experiences. So even if they work towards the same goal, sometimes it is difficult for them to collaborate. When there is a strong bridge and alignment between them, the project is set up for success from the beginning and both embrace the same language.
Some of the questions we're looking to answer: 

What methods, tools, and processes are used by product designers and engineers at Slack and AirBnB to better collaborate, create better products, and work efficiency.
How to share specs with engineers to get the teams aligned towards the same goal? 
How to build richer animations without the painstaking overhead of re-writing them?
How to use powerful tools like Lottie to bring designers and engineers closer together? 
and ... your questions around effective collaboration between designers and engineers.
