@taylorylee0Schema 2021: Building custom Figma plugins 🔨 And sneak peek into a FigJam widget I am currently working on WIP
@taylorylee0Hi there! :parachute: Long time no see Hack Club. A few life updates… I voted for the first time a few weeks ago, been teaching kids how to code, playing around w/ how to create Figma widgets/plugins and did something kinda wild today… I jumped out of an airplane with my mom! It was a surreal, exciting experience and reminds me how small we are in this vast universe and to continue to do something outside of my comfort zone. I am super grateful and would love to do something like this again!
@nvd0Tried making the basic shape from vecatry then transferring it to figma
@nvd0Made this design in figma but stuck to a bit of basics though #designing #Day6

@ella1Today I met @riley33chou and @MarinaLee in person :yay: and packed envelopes to mail swag to some people who attended citro hacks! (I've got some figma, replit, and hack club stickers left over so if you want some, DM me - I can probably mail an envelope to you!)
@taylorylee0Config Day 2: Last day! Sad it's over; thank you Figma + the speakers! An incredible conference.:figma:
Some takeaways from multiple talks:
Find joy in making despite "design breakups"
Be intentional with your growth
Universal challenges (Work priorities change. Prioritize innovation/the north star/hiring. Your team will look different when it started, so have a good pulse on morale and perspective. Scaling is not hustling, it's about building elastically and resiliency)
@taylorylee0Attending Config 2021 Day 1 - "Figma is a space for everything and anything"
Key takeaways from this awesome talk by @/ace
Figma is a...
• sketchbook - learn by doing 📝
• a playground - thoughtful chaos :artist:
• home - comfort and purpose 🏡
• studio - bringing something to life ✨
• classroom - learning by teaching 💬
1. Master the toolbox :toolbox:
2. Get others involved 😎
3. Use what you make :figma:
@matthewvandyke080Sketched out some ideas for a portfolio redesign and just got started in figma today. Plus worked on some other braindump tasks
@taylorylee0Registered for Config (Figma's design conference) :figma: and released our school newspaper's first podcast episode you can check out here! It's about personal narratives and it serves as a historical archive of stories from students and other community members at our school. I am still figuring out how to podcast, but it has been a fun process piecing audio together
@sarthak0All of our Mintere sites are generated by components so you can’t do fancy stuff like negative margins and what not 😞 but anyways in Figma, I’m used to just generating a Macbook/Desktop Frame and scaling the height by x to get the exact vh for each section and then I do the fancy stuff with absolute positioning and negative margins.
Fast forward to today and I noticed something super interesting one of our designers (or both idk) which is really nice for componentized design. I might just use this method now cause it’s easier than scaling the height by x and trying to remember the original height. cc @ben
tldr: Use Auto-Layout with individual Macbook/Desktop frames and make your developers happy :)
