Yes, designers and engineers can play nice

As I’ve noted previously here, a great design and development working relationship is essential. Developer Derrick Ko writes a great post on how to make that possible:

Plan your sprints with both engineering and design present. Give both sides a chance to be heard when deciding the priority of upcoming feature work. There’s a lot less friction when the team understands the tradeoffs at play.

Once things are prioritized, stick to it.
