Fireproofing Your Interactions, Jeff Harrison

  • Oct 10, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Axure lets you build complex interactions, but it takes some effort, and by the time you're done you may feel like you're looking at a plate of logical spaghetti. The next time you open the file you have to take a half hour to remind yourself how it works. An awesome interactive module works great, until you try to copy it to another page. A "simple tweak" requires just two small changes--that have to be made in dozens of places. Before long it's hard to touch your file without getting burned. Jeff will share tips for designing rock-solid interactive components to promote reuse, insulate yourself from severe burns, and make you look like a prototyping wizard. 

Jeff Harrison has been spending way too much time in Axure since 2008. He figured out how to implement simple arithmetic, filterable data tables, and drag and drop interactions before Axure introduced them as features, and has learned some things along the way to make life easier on himself. He also runs the training program at Evantage Consulting, which is Axure's training partner in North America.

**This meetup is hosted by Orbitz, and is a combined effort between Axure Users Meetup, Chicago and IxDA Chicago. Thank you to everyone involved.**

    Thanks to the AUM and IxDA leaders for scheduling this around me, and to everyone who came and asked questions and otherwise helped to make it a great event. I enjoyed meeting the lot of you.

    Loved the talk. Thanks for coordinating with the IxDA chapter. Can't wait to get my hands on his file to dissect it and learn more of his tricks.

    Unfortunately I can't make it. Any chance the slides will be made available after the meetup?
