Why should I learn sketching?

Sketching is not about being a good artist. It's about being a good thinker.

Jason Santa Maria

The real goal of sketching is functional. It’s about generating ideas, solving problems, and communicating ideas more effectively with others.

Jared Spool

Expressing solutions in words is difficult. For the other person to understand what you mean is even more difficult. That is why we take screenshots when the interface is broken, instead of describing the bug in words.

Sketching is like taking screenshots of your thoughts:

  • You understand better what you mean
  • Others understand better what you mean
  • Understanding across people, roles and teams is reached much faster

In consequence, sketching safes a lot of time and avoids frustration. You might know The Project Cartoon:

Sketching can help a great deal to avoid situations like this. By clearing out misunderstandings before they are crafted into code, sketching can help to safe money, time and stress.

What exactly will I learn in this workshop?

The goal of this workshop is mostly to ease the fear of pen and paper and install sketching as a new communication default in the brain. That includes:

  • receiving and giving feedback
  • materials and tools
  • basic shapes
  • typography
  • icons
  • color and shade
  • diagrams
  • interfaces
  • posters

What do I need to know, own or prepare to attend?

Nothing. You will be equipped with all necessary tools, materials, knowledge and coffee 🚀

Who should attend?

Everybody who is working in Software can attend to improve communication in their teams:

  • Developers
  • Designers
  • Product Owners
  • Project Managers
  • Community Stewards
  • Event Organizers
  • Supporters

Next date: Saturday April 9th 2016, 10:00 – 15:00

  • (includes 1 hr lunchbreak)
  • Location: Hamburg, tba
  • 🎉 Price: Nearly free! 🎉 I will collect Eur 29 per person to pay for tools and materials.
    For those who cannot afford the 29 Euro, there will be at least 3 inclusivity tickets available at the price of 0 Eur. You can apply for those by writing to fabian at superpursuitmo.de – I will keep that info confidential, of course!

How do I reserve a seat?

please leave a comment here so I can notify you wenn tickets are availabe. if in doubt, a "+1" does it :)

if you do not have a github account, either create one at github.com/join or or tell me via fabian at superpursuitmo.de

Please let me know if would you be interested in childcare while attending the workshop!

According to the site "Registration is not currently available." Is this a temporary thing, or is the class full?
