Learn How to Use Adobe XD and Build an XD Plugin at Adobe Summit 2019

Steve Kwak presenting a workshop.

Are you attending Adobe Summit 2019? Are you interested in learning how to use Adobe XD or build a plugin for it? If so, sign up for our session, L772 — Supercharge UX Design and Connect It to Experience Development and Delivery.

In this lab, we’ll show you how to design the full customer journey, from brand to demand, using Adobe XD for brand and experience design, prototyping, and collaboration with internal and external stakeholders. Plus, you will have a chance to build an XD plugin to automate your design workflows.

Learn how to use XD

Our strategic development manager, Demian Borba, will help you learn how to use various XD features such as:

  1. Drag-and-drop images
  2. Repeat grids
  3. Responsive resize
  4. Prototyping
  5. Voice prototyping
  6. Sharing

He will also show off popular third-party XD plugins that can help you automate your design workflows. After this session, you will be able to start creating complex designs quickly using Adobe XD.

Learn more about prototyping with Adobe XD at Summit.

Build an XD plugin

After Demian’s presentation, I will walk you through how to create an XD plugin, step-by-step:

  1. How to create a plugin scaffold
  2. How to write code using the XD plugin APIs
  3. How to package your plugin for sharing and installation
At Summit Steve Kwak will teach you how to make this social media image sizing plugin.

This session is designed for everyone: non-programmers who have no prior coding experience as well as developers who already have experience building software. Since this session is broken into three different bite-sized parts, everyone will be able to finish building at least one plugin by the end of the session.

Meet our team

Both Demian and I along with the Creative Cloud Developer Ecosystem staff will be present at the CC Exchange and general Creative Cloud booths. Feel free to swing by, say hello, and ask questions!
