Presented on Nov 3, 2009 at Øredev in Malmo, Sweden.
What is the fastest way to get from a product idea to a rich internet application? By breaking down the communication barriers between designers and developers.
This talk takes a quick look at how to build a shared vocabulary and use prototyping to bypass extensive wireframes and development specs.
Take a look at 5 simple and effective prototyping tools:
Balsamiq Mock-ups + Nakpee
Any wireframes + Protoscript
Prototcasting (using click-throughs and screencasts to convey requirements)
Atlas and other development environments + visual layout editors
This presentation goes hand in hand with our book (Bill Scott & Theresa Neil) called Designing Web Interfaces: Principles and Patterns for Rich Interaction.
