Weeknote 535

February 22nd to 28th

We’ve got some great feedback on our article about design tools. It also helped a lot to get attention for the hackday we are organizing. A lot of talented people from all over the world applied. It’ll be an illustrious crowd. There’s just one thing bothering us.

While we made a conscious effort to have a good balance between male and female jury and team members, the ratio of the applications is skewed towards men. We already tried to address women more directly, but there is still room for improvement. So, if you are a woman – or know any women – interested in designing or developing extensions for Sketch, please have a look at the hackday website. We have sponsorships for people from abroad, so you might also want to consider an application if you are not living near Hamburg.

That’s it for this week. More about our current projects in the next bulletin.
