Women Who Code PDX - Design + Product Study Night: Introduction to Sketch Workshop
New Relic

The Women Who Code PDX Workshop: Introduction to Sketch

Sketch is a popular digital design tool for Mac. Most companies and screen-based designers use Sketch at work. (It's pretty great).

This workshop will be hands-on, and you will need your Mac laptop to follow along. By the end, you will have designed a couple of screens that you will test using InVision (a collaboration tool for design and product teams), animated through Principle or Framer, and handed off to developers through Zeplin.

You don't need to have any experience with Sketch to come. Beginners totally welcome!

Requirements:

  • A MacBook of some kind. Sketch is a Mac-only tool.
  • A copy of Sketch. You can download a free 30 day trial.

About the Instructor:

Kristin Lasita is a Product Designer at Simple, an online bank with super customer service and well-designed tools to help you save and budget.

Women Who Code Portland: Software Engineering Interview Preparation
Puppet

Women Who Code Portland is hosting a Software Engineering Interview Preparation Workshop. This event is geared towards helping women prepare for technical interviews, but we welcome everyone who supports our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers and follows our code of conduct. The goal of the workshop is to provide people with the opportunity to gain experience with a technical interview format.

This workshop is broken into two sections: - Interview Best Practices - Mock Interviews & Whiteboarding

In the morning, we'll cover an introduction to solving algorithms. Participants will have the chance to see common interview algorithms, and approach how to solve them under pressure.

In the afternoon, we will break into groups for mock interviews. This will help participants get a feel for what a technical interview might be like. Whiteboarding can be much different than writing on paper, especially in front of others. Participants will have the chance to practice answers to common questions, thinking out loud while solving a problem and practice techniques for how to move forward when stumped.

AGENDA

  • 9:30 - Doors Open
  • 10:00 - Introductions, interview prep, and algorithm practice
  • 12:00 - Lunch
  • 1:00 - Break into groups for mock interviews
  • 4:30 - Finish
