About this event

Welcome to another Friends of Figma Portugal Meetup.

For this event, we will be talking all about Design-Developer Handoff, specifically How to Ensure a Smooth Design Handoff with our very own Marcelo Henrique.

We'll be discussing best practices on how to make your documentation process and conversations with development flawless (or at least try). Marcelo will beings us his expertise from working at Volkswagen Digital Solutions, where he is part of the groupUI Design Systems team, collaborating with core designers from VW, Germany. There will also be time for cool tips and tricks, and at the end save some time for the latest Figma & FigJam updates.
