HUI Weekly Roundup #175: Tips on writing tidy code, Sketch 44 Beta — in depth, Avatar embodiment in VR

Curated on Thursday May 11, 2017 by Sagi Shrieber and David Tintner

Hey Hackers,

This week we have two updates for you:

1. We have a new upcoming Master Class about a super interesting topic — UX for VR, and specifically on a hot topic called VR Embodiment.
You can sign up here → (it’s free and online)

2. Regarding CurationKit — we’re going to pick one person who purchases during the pre-sale to bring into a special mentorship and promotion program in which we’ll personally help them each week to launch and grow their newsletter.

The pre-order ends soon, so hurry up and get it if you’d like to have the chance.
All details can be found here →
