Why (and How) to Rapidly Prototype for Multiple Devices
The online world is changing, and new devices are becoming both more important and more varied. Building prototypes for web sites and web apps is getting harder, and the need to have a working prototype to use and get feedback on is more critical than ever. In this talk we'll show you how to use Foundation, a new CSS/HTML/JS framework, to quickly prototype sites and web apps that work on any kind of device, at any resolutions, with a variety of capabilities and constraints. We'll look at creating complex layouts in minutes that let you easily try out different experiences and different JS interactions. The key to success in the new online world is rapid prototyping and iteration, so come hear about a slick new way to get things done.
