  • 1. RAPID PROTOTYPING with jQuery
  • 2. PROTOTYPING
  • 3. WHAT IS A PROTOTYPE? A prototype is an original type, form, or instance of something serving as a typical example, basis, or standard for other things of the same category.
  • 4. “An Experience Prototype is any kind of representation, in any medium, that is designed to understand, explore or communicate what it might be like to engage with the product, space or system we are designing.” Jane Fulton Suri
  • 5. WHAT IS RAPID PROTOTYPING? • Implementing some product functionality as soon as possible • Not worrying about any details or production issues • Keeping up an illusion!
  • 6. Rapid prototypers are the illusionists and magicians of the web.
  • 7. WHY?
  • 8. design like in ‘product design’ • Engineering the final design can take a long time • Slow feedback loop for each design interaction • Communication problems between design and engineering
  • 9. WHY? • Exploration • Validating it works • Communication
  • 10. DIFFERENT PROTOTYPES • Wireframes = Walk through prototypes • Interactive prototypes
  • 11. WHAT IS A PROTOTYPE FOR US? • Interactive click dummy • Modelled after wireframes and/or concept layouts • Usually targeted at one audience, on one platform
  • 12. A Prototype doesn’t need to validate!
  • 13. NO CROSS- BROWSER MESS!
  • 14. Semantics? Who needs semantics! SEO? Who cares, damn it? Structure, logic...! LOL!
  • 15. Just do it, damnit!
  • 16. REQUIREMENTS OF A PROTOTYPE
  • 17. Layout Behavior Data
  • 18. LAYOUT • Use CSS Frameworks! • Copy and Paste! • Use WYSIWYG Editors! Just get the damn job done!
  • 19. CSS FRAMEWORKS? • Hides complexity, like any other framework • Provides templates for grids, columns and more • Normalizes across browsers
  • 20. SOME TECHNIQUES • If the floats don’t work, simply position everything • Use a CSS Framework that comes with columns or a grid • Utilize all kinds of specific browser technology
  • 21. BEHAVIOR • Brings life into the prototype • Describe interactions a user can perform • Clicks • Hover • Drags • ..etc
  • 22. CSS • Use CSS whenever possible • Use it to simulate hover events: a:hover {} • Use content injection through CSS • Switch class names in JavaScript, not styles
  • 23. DATA • Use jQuery’s ajax functions to quickly inject content • JSONP is your friend! • $(‘div’).load(‘some.url#content’)
  • 24. USE PUBLIC API’S • YQL • Google API’s (Maps, Search, Docs, etc) • Flickr
  • 25. THE ILLUSION OF SPEED
  • 26. A PROTOTYPE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE FAST.
  • 27. IT ONLY HAS TO FEEL FAST.
  • 28. PERCEIVED RESPONSIVENESS • Slow down your interactions • Use animations and effects to hide a loading process • Slow interaction makes people understand your prototype! • Shows the state change • Shows relationships between elements • Focusses attention
  • 29. TOOLS
