Sketchnoting: Creative Notes for Technical Content

A session at GoGaRuCo 2014

Saturday 20th September, 2014

11:30am to 12:00pm (PST)

As developers, most of our time is spent on computers and electronic devices; but sometimes good old-fashioned pen and paper is the best way to explore and develop our ideas. Sketchnoting combines hand-drawn elements and text to enhance focus, improve memory, and visualize important concepts. The practice of sketchnoting is not about the ability to draw--it's about the ability to listen. This talk will cover tools and techniques to visually capture ideas, how to approach the mental multitasking required to sketch during technical talks and meetings, and why "I can't draw" is just a mental barrier to embracing creativity in your notes.
