Mobile UX Workshop: Prototyping & Storytelling [ soldout ]

[ For those who couldn't make the last one ]

• This workshop is limited to 25 people again; This helps ensure quality instruction.

• The location is at the Biltmore Hotel — Arcade Level (basement)

• All attendes will receive a PDF version of "Storytelling for User Experience"

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Communication is an integral part of the user experience design process, and as part of being a UXer, how well we communicate this is the real ground work needed to connect our design ideas and requirements to the people who are actually using the product.

This workshop will outline why prototyping is an essential part of the emerging world of tablets and mobile experience design, and how pairing it with effective storytelling will help you fight the struggle of communicating your wealth of information so everyone just 'gets' it.

You'll learn underlying mobile design principles and design conventions that is emerging as these devices become commonplace. In addition, you'll learn a wide variety of hands-on prototyping methods that can be applied to your design process. You'll receive tactical, hands-on instruction to turn your ideas into interactive prototypes with speed and confidence.

Topics covered will include:
• Basic mobile UX design principles
• Designing for multiple scales
• Understanding mobile use contexts
• Tips for wireframing & user testing
• Sketching techniques
• Paper prototyping
• List of resources for further learning

Expect hands-on design explorations, group ideation and the opportunity to make the abstract future of user experience design a little more fun. This is a hands-on workshop, which means you'll be working with scissors, markers and such. I shouldn't have to tell you not to run with them. You won't need a laptop, but you're welcome to bring one.

    Vince has a natural teaching ability. The mobile project was excellent way to dive in and get hands on. Also, good project for collaborating. Suggestion: run this again and use a software product...say analytics and reporting for a business to business product. Or, dig into a discreet task such as filtering and user input of forms/fields.

    Great meetup - Vince was very knowledgeable and helpful. At last half the time was spent collaborating in a group and doing hands-on sketching/prototyping which was very effective practice, whether or not you have done this type of thing before. Wish I made it to the event earlier for the social/networking time, since there was not much time to chat with others beyond your group during the presentation/hands-on time.

    I learned a lot more about the process of making mockups out of physical craft, rather than just on screen. A good experience.

    Confident speaker. Knowledgeable on the subject matter. Great presentation and content for the allotted time. Would recommend to others to see a Vince presentation.

    It was a very well organized and informative workshopl. I thought Vince did a terrific job of presenting the material in such a short period of time. Let's have a followup one on personas and usability testing!

    Here's an interesting/helpful link regarding parking close to the Biltmore. http://en.parkopedia.com/parking/biltmore_pl_nw_atlanta/ Use the filter in the lefthand column to select the day and time range in order to show pricing and lots close to the Biltmore.

    Peters parking deck on Ga tech's campus is the closest deck to the Biltmore and should be free this weekend. A short walk, but free! 749 Fowler Street

    @Lisa, there is parking behind the Biltmore — however, it's definitely not the cheapest. Like @Logan said too, there are various options around the area — I just couldn't tell you which would be best :/

    Georgia Tech has a few reasonable parking options on 5th street including along the street there. They are all pay spots. I think the lot across from Barnes and Noble might be cheaper.

  • Lisa M.

    Hi Vince, what are the parking arrangements and/or options? Thx/lisa

    July 11, 2012

  • Logan J V.

    I would like to get there early, thank you.

    Hey everyone, for those who want to show up a bit early, I'll be providing some Pizza for lunch. I'll just need to get a proper head count so I'll ping everyone again Friday night to see if you're interested.

    Beginners & Intermediate... If you're a pro this workshop may not be as valuable, unless you're relatively new to Mobile & Lean principals.
