Formerly a designer, he also co-founded company Made by Source that has built the first ever Photoshop plugin called the CSS Hat and 13 other plugins. Since 2014 he is fully devoted to Avocode as the ultimate bridge between designers and developers. In 2016, he went through the 500 Startups Seed Program in Mountain View, CA. Besides the work at Avocode, he loves to play CS and crush waves on a surf. 📝Demo: "How to save time on preparing Sketch design for developers" Following up on our September talk about hand-off to development we will host Vu Hoang Anh, the CEO and Co-founder at Avocode to talk about how to share Sketch prototype flows with developers without having to prepare anything. He will touch upon how developers can access Sketch files without the Sketch app, how they can turn Symbols to code, why should developers have access to layers and why they need too see the prototype before they start coding. Key points: - how to open a Sketch file without Sketch and why it's important (platforms, budget…) - preparing layers for export is so yesterday (multiselect, flexible export, scale, SVG, optimization) - why developers need access to layers - why developers need to understand prototype flows - how to turn Symbols to code faster (CSS in JS, Styled Components) - how to measure with rulers, layout grid, and regular grid Avocode workflow: - Import and open any design file from any operating system - Share prototypes and let anyone click through the flow - Comment, mention others and discuss changes - Download files, implement changes and sync new versions - Inspect and quickly turn any design to web and mobile code 💻What do I need to bring? Your good mood and motivation to learn new stuff and meet kind people. You can also bring your mac – if possible. 😉 🏢Location The Meetup will take place at "Stuttgart Media University" (HdM) in room S003.
