If you’re in the Seattle area, are a web design or UX professional, and want to learn more about prototyping in code, come to the June Puget Sound SIGCHI meeting this Thursday, June 23rd. I’ll be speaking about prototyping, and much more — here’s a quick description:
When: Thursday, June 23, 2011 – 6:30pm
Where: Blink Interactive, 1011 Western Ave., Suite 810, Seattle 98104
Designing experiences using native web code instead can help us overcome those limitations and make us better designers. The process of building out our ideas in the same medium in which they will be implemented makes us better able to understand what is possible. In this presentation you’ll learn about creating interactive prototypes that will thrill stakeholders, designers and developers alike. We’ll review some of the ways of organizing information and creating rich interactions that can be done with code. We’ll also walk through specific techniques, tricks and web-based tools, many of which require no prior coding knowledge to start using. Through prototyping, you’ll get closer to both the finished product and to the designers and developers who will be ultimately translating and implementing it.
The event is free, and open to the public, though if you enjoy this event, you should really consider joining PSSIGCHI. (Check out the fringe benefits.) Hope to see you there!
