Have you ever participated in an creative hackathon? Are you curious what it might be like? Join us Wednesday, March 21 for a low-stakes creative hackathon. Demian Borba, Strategic Development Manager and Product Owner for Adobe XD, will run us through a quick demo of new Adobe XD features. Then, we'll introduce a set of design challenges for you to choose from. Whether you're intermediate or advanced with Adobe XD, we'll have an appropriate challenge for you. While you prototype, Demian and Chris Griffith, our local Adobe XD expert, will offer advice tailored to the specific things you're trying to do in the application. The Design Challenges come from February's Meetup with the City of San Diego. Choose one of the many solutions or create your own.
