Rizwan Javaid – You Too Can Be A Sketching Machine

January 9th, 2018

Presented at Appdevcon 2017. Abstract: “Sketching is a crucial skill that spans all job titles. It helps with brainstorming ideas, iterating through concepts, and communicating our ideas to others. Whether working individually or in a group, our ability to sketch helps take the abstract ideas out of heads and into the real world. If you’re not comfortable sketching then there is little chance that your ideas will stick with you, your team members, and even your clients. Don’t worry—the confidence you need to put your pen to paper and start to sketch is close at hand! With the addition of a few simple approaches to your daily routine, you too can harness the power of sketching and become a sketching machine. Come prepared to do fun sketching activities so you can experience the power of sketching firsthand.”
