Should a designer learn to code? Should a developer learn to design? A timeless debate! Although they are two different entities, they have a lot in common! In this keynote presentation, I would like to share my insights on how we can minimize the gap between them and build successful products.

How digital art helped me rediscover drawing

I was terrible at drawing as a kid. I enviously looked at the realistic landscapes my classmates drew during art class. Over time I came to believe that I could not draw and lost interest. Many years later when I stumbled across Autodesk Sketchbook, my perspective of drawing changed forever.

Reviving the Spirit

Back in 2015, we launched the Kathmandu Dribbble Meetup, a wild ride that continued until 2018! We’re the kind of people who’d cross mountains just for a meetup. In fact, our design passion led us on a road trip to Pokhara for organizing the meetup.

From cheers and jeers to thumbs up and thumbs down, from high fives to facepalms, we’ve weathered it all. And guess what? That itch is back!

So brace yourselves! We’re gearing up for another whirlwind adventure. It’s time to mingle with UI Designers, shake hands with UX Strategists, high-five Figma Lovers, nod to coders and no-coders, and swap witty banter with copywriters.

So, whether you’re fueled by beer, driven by coffee, or just passionate about design, mark your calendars and get ready for a day of inspiration, connection, and fun!
