Are you a designer who wants to attend hackathons, but think they aren’t for you? Are you an engineer who wants to improve your design thinking?
This 3-hour workshop is for designers & engineers looking to attend (and win!) hackathons with better design & improved UX. We will focus on giving you a toolbox of skills and strategies to help you plan and design your project. Due to the time constraints of a hackathon (most take place in 24 to 48 hours) there’s a greater need to drill down into design basics so you can hit your idea out of the park and walk away with something great for your portfolio.
During this workshop you’ll –
Learn to identify design goals for a hackathon project
Develop your ideas through quick drafts & group feedback
Share resources & meet potential teammates
This workshop is for women and nonbinary folks only!
