SecondConf: Sketching for Developers

SINGLE TRACK conferences seem to be all the rage. Limited attendee slots, focused topics and one track that everyone can enjoy together. SecondConf, like Madison Ruby, is one of the new crop of focused, single-track, small conferences with the right recipe.

On Sunday, I was honored to speak at SecondConf, on the importance of sketching in app development. I shared sketches I created for developer Chad Sellers, while designing Pear Note for Mac and iPad. I offered a variety of tips and ideas to encourage indie developers to start sketching too.

I've posted a PDF of my presentation deck (2.5MB), if you'd like to check it out.

Thanks Dave and Amy Kinney for the opportunity to be part of SecondConf!

Thanks Wayne - someone else saw that and I've now repaired the link (though you might want to refresh the page to get the new URL loaded above).

Hello Mike,
I love the font you used for your presentation. Which font is it?

Jim, that font is my own and is currently in the process of being built. :-)
