On August 25th I’ll be speaking at PrototypeCamp Chicago.
I’m giving a presentation called “PDF = Prototype” about quickly turning PDFs into Prototypes. I’ll be humbly sharing this stage along side fantastic speakers like Jared Spool, Ryan Singer, Russ Unger and Dennis Kardys.
All of us talking about how we can help make #goodweb by prototyping and I think you should go.
Here’s the writeup on my session: Providing clients with wireframe and design PDFs is common place. But those flat files generally aren’t very good at giving them a sense of what it’s like to use your awesomely planned site/app/etc. No matter what program you use to make your PDF there’s a quick and easy way to turn it into a prototype. In fact – We’ll make one in 20 min or less.
And in turn you’ll help clients see the importance of wireframes in the creative process and help them to understand that the content and functionality drives the design. Not the other way around.
Prototype Camp Chicago delivers a full day of bringing together Designers, Developers, and anyone else who is interested in putting a bit more “build and create” into their craft. Are you a designer who wants to learn more about how to code but have not yet found your inner codemonkey? Are you a developer who wants to learn more about how to create non-code prototypes but are afraid you just are not one of those creative types? Are you just curious to learn more tips, tricks, and techniques from other smart folks in the design and development community? PrototypeCamp is going to bring together many bright minds who can walk you through a variety of methods for making things more made.
Camp goes from 8:30am to 4:30 pm on Saturday August 25th at the Harrington College of Design 200 West Madison Street, Chicago, IL. You can check out more about the camp and get tickets here: http://prototypecamp.com/
