Adventures in Prototyping: How To Make Simple, Solid HTML/CSS Prototypes by Jen Myers
You need a prototype and you need it fast. Chances are, you’d also like it to look nice, be built on solid code and represent both the functionality and feel of the final intended product. With a good foundational knowledge of cutting-edge markup practices, design principles and readily available tools, it is in fact possible. This presentation will walk through a workflow of using static site generators along with style frameworks and helpers to create quick, beautiful, representative prototypes.
