Redesign Possibilities, Redefine Thoughts

11th August, 2018 | Pune

About Unfold UI

Unfold UI is a free to attend UI focused community event, organized by ThoughtWorks. We are bunch of passionate developers operating with the latest frontend technologies. Our goal is to bring frontend developers from all across the industry together, to share learnings and knowledge, grow our professional networks and more importantly have fun.

“The Core”

Our focus for this first ever edition of Unfold UI is ‘The Core’ - The Core essentials of UI Development. Web frameworks, libraries come and go, but the fundamental concepts remain intact and the solid understanding of those can go a long way.

Why you should attend

Innovation in front-end technology happens daily. Frameworks and tools come and go before we get time to react. You may personally not have gotten a chance to dip your feet in that promising new tool announced on your twitter feed, but be assured, someone somewhere has fiddled with it and has a story to tell. Unfold UI aims to be that platform for sharing these stories and experiences.

You will get to:

  • Learn from your peers in the industry about what works, what does not and see how they are solving their challenges
  • Discuss and debate with fellow developers on any topic that sparks common interest so that we can all learn something new
  • Code and sharpen your own skills through hands-on workshops

We hope all of this inspires you to create and conceive your own solutions in your day-to-day work lives.

And the best part of it all, it’s Free! All we ask for, is your presence and enthusiasm.

Want to attend?

Thank you for showing interest. We have closed the registrations but will be coming back soon with the next edition of Unfold UI.

Stay tuned!
