Many products at Canonical offers both UI and CLI experiences. However, having a congruent User Experience for both aspects in a platform can often be challenging. In this talk, we want to walk through some thought process behind the making of MAAS UI, redesigning the CLI, and how the Design Thinking process turned these problems into a CLI guideline at Canonical.
