  • Joshua Wold: Sketches – The Universal Language

    WordCamp Baltimore 2017Speaker: Joshua Wold

    October 20, 2017 — Sketching is a universal language anyone can speak and understand, regardless of their technical background.
    If you’ve ever had to explain a technical problem to a stakeholder, developer, designer, or client, then you’ve likely run into issues of miscommunication.

    In this talk we’ll look at some quick steps to creating sketches that you can add to issue you’re discussing. This doesn’t require being an artist or a designer, if you can draw a few basic shapes then you can make sketches work for you.
