Auto layout driving you crazy? Scared about what will happen with your design in the browser? Then this deep dive workshop is perfect for you.
We will learn everything about how to set up responsive design with Figma. This will be a deep dive into constraints, auto layout, and, most importantly but rarely discussed, breakpoints for your UI Design. Combining those tools will allow us to really test and document your designs and components in line with the actual code settings.
All proceeds from this workshop will be donated to humanitarian aid in Ukraine 🇺🇦
