Adobe Proto

Adobe Proto, a new Adobe Touch App, lets you create interactive wireframes and prototypes of websites and mobile apps on your tablet. Communicate and share ideas with teams and clients using a touch-based interface.¹ Initially available for Android. - Sketch wireframes with simple finger strokes. - Use well-known CSS grid systems. - Take advantage of the latest WebKit and jQuery support.

Speaker: Sally Cox

She is an Adobe Certified Instructor, eLearning/ePUB/Instructional Designer, Author, Virtual Producer at kreatable.com. Sally also runs the Adobe Creative Suite user group in San Jose. She'll be doing a demo of the new Adobe Prototyping app for tablets.

 

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.

Speaker: Jonathan Smiley 

He is a Design Lead at ZURB and lead decision maker for ZURB's suite of products. Over the last 2+ years he has worked with dozens of clients on everything from business strategy to interaction design to nuts and bolts implementation. Mobile Apps

 

Prototyping and building mobile apps in the cloud In this cool session you will learn how to build HTML5 and native apps using Tiggr. Tiggr is a cloud-based mobile apps builder that uses HTML5, jQuery Mobile, REST, and PhoneGap to build apps. A real mobile app will be prototyped and built during the session, which attendees will be able to run and test on their own devices. Max Katz is a Developer Evangelist for Tiggr Mobile Apps Builder at Exadel. You can find Max’s writings about Web and mobile technologies on his blog,mkblog.exadel.com, and you can follow him on Twitter at @maxkatz.

    Sid-Excellent choice for ALL 3 Presentations! Sally- excellent job revealing great Adobe Proto tool. I love snap-to grids! Max- good review of Tiggr (saw it before) and Cartesian use of block sizes and tables, somewhat expensive. Jon- best "dynamic" presentation for Proto, great list existing Zurb clients/assumed positive testimonials.

    Awesome meetup! Learned a ton and had fun! Definitely going to take a deeper look into Tiggr and Foundation. Also, plan to take a look at StackMob. Guess I better take a look at this whole Creative Cloud thing from Adobe as well. Proto looked a lot like Adobe Fireworks modified a bit for mobile devices. Did I totally miss something? I'm new to this so maybe I did. :) I like the idea of having a mobile tool you can use to prototype while you're with the client, but it looks like it's going to be awhile until anything competes with a keyboard and mouse for development.

    Three inexpensive &/or free products you can use today for rapid prototyping and responsive design. Sid hit it out of the park this time.

  • Alec D.

    Three great topics with top-notch speakers. I got the most "how to" info from the Adobe Proto presentation (Sally, thanks for the steep discount on Proto :-) ) and the best tool overview from the Tiggr presentation.

  • Aditya M.

    Will be trying out both Tiggr and Foundation. Thanks Jonathan and Max!

    The speakers were awesome. They were a good mix covering both theory as well as implementation aspects of mobile web application design.

    Great meeting. Enjoyed the presentations. Foundation was the most exciting to me. Will be trying it out soon.

    Almost didn't attend but glad I did, it was interesting to see the alternate approaches and how quickly you can get real stuff done. Quite impressive

    Great meetup. I got some good info out of all the speakers. Wish I could have stuck around but I had to jet immediately after the last speaker. My one critique would be to the Zurb speaker. Way too many slides about general mobile stuff. I was much more interested in the things you were saying about adaptive design. I wanted to ask some questions, but it went a little long for me. That being said I enjoyed the presentation and found it very informative.

    Steve, I DID know it was a mobile meeting. The group is "Bay Area Mobile". By showcasing the prototype of a website, I was able to show more features of Proto than a simple mobile prototype. Its an awesome app that is very well received so far, even though it might not be of interest to you. Have a nice day.

    Thanks for organizing this. Tigrr was very interesting and well done. Adobe was boring - why wouldn't she have recognized this was a mobile meetup? Zurb started well, with many well done slides, but way too many words. I was exhausted halfway through and irritated by the end. (trying to help the very knowledgeable speaker)

    Excellent prototyping theme! I like variety and related to most Meetups being one presentation it was a nice twist to have three focused on one theme. I did a quick count of about 90 heads.

    Highly relevant demo's and a stunningly strong presentation by Jonathan Smiley from Zurb on Responsive Prototyping. nice.

    A really great lineup of speakers and very engaged audience.

    What a great event! Sid pulled off a location switch at the last minute and STILL had huge turnout. Thanks to Stackmob for stepping up to the plate, and Onward Search for the pizza. Great speakers and lots of insightful questions. I even learned a lot from the other speakers. Well done, Sid!

    The Triple Header was truly that, prototyping from different views. Each very worthwhile. It was of the best meetups I have gone to for years. No light weights, just good, real information.

    LOL, sorry for not saying exactly where the StackMob office is located. The office is located in SOMA near the Adobe and Zynga offices. On 8th street inbetween Bryant and Brannan. The space can hold up to 250 people. I sent a message to the organizers to let them know the space was available next week.

    The Zurb folks have a framework for doing prototyping, not sure how developer centric it is. The Tiggr tool is designer-friendly.

    November 14, 2011

  • Sally C.

    Speaking for the AdobeTouch tools I will be demoing: you absolutely do NOT need to be a developer to follow along. Can't speak for the other speakers, though.

    November 14, 2011

  • SN

    Do you need to be a developer to follow along? Or are these more WYSIWYG prototyping tools?
