Hello Everyone,

We have a great location for this next workshop! We have done every other event in Manhattan so this time it's going to be in Greenpoint at PencilWorks.

Because of Pencilworks (see more below also for a special deal) is generously offering the space and they can host up to 50 people I can lower the ticket to $10:
– If you already paid you'll get a refund at the event as Meetup doesn't allow partial refunds
– If you cannot attend because of the new date, let me know and I'll send you a full refund.

As usual we'll raffle Sketch licenses depending on the number of attendees. I also was given some nice swag from the great folks at Sketch that'll be sharing at the event. :)

Some of the things we'll be talking about:

General UI overview:
– What's obvious and what's a little more hidden.

Resizable symbols and overrides:
A couple of posts I wrote...

1) Read "Tint icons using nested symbols ("

2) Read "Resizable (Smart) symbols ("

AnimaApp Auto-Layout plugin (now with flexbox/stacks!)
– I made a quick video (below) to see what's possible but the more I work with it the more I can't imagine working without it. :) Confirmed: Or, one of the Co-Founders of AnimaApp IS coming to talk about it himself! 👊

– Since the date for the ProtoPie Meetup was on the same day, we'll be talking about it too. ProtoPie ( is an insanely powerful prototyping tool that doesn't require any coding. It can do everything other prototyping tools can do and more (see video below for example). You can see their demos here ( Its Sketch import tool is one of the best. They've also sent us some great swag so I'll be sharing those as well. :)

Pending time and interest:
– Other plugins like CRAFT (Sync and Freehand in particular
