We've teamed up with ADPList to bring you the tools and techniques you'll need to successfully work with developers

How do our designs turn into LIVE apps and websites? “Coding” is the simple answer, but there’s a lot more to it than that. As UX designers, we’re collaborating and communicating with developers to bring our apps and websites to life all the time. Lack of experience can lead to missing deadlines, going over budget, and creating a product that doesn’t provide a good experience for users. In this live stream UX workshop, you’ll learn the tools, process, and skills involved in developer hand-off that are essential to a smooth transition from design files to a live product. Developers are our friends, let’s learn how to work together to design, build, and launch awesome products!
