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.

Jen Myers is a web designer/developer and part of the instructor team at Dev Bootcamp in Chicago. In 2011, she founded the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Girl Develop It, an organization that provides introductory coding classes aimed at women, and currently co-leads the Girl Develop It Chicago chapter. She speaks regularly about design, development and diversity, and focuses on finding new ways to make both technology and technology education accessible to everyone.

    Jen was wonderful! She took her audience into consideration and, on the fly, tailored her talk to the developer heavy audience as opposed to the designer heavy audience that she is used to addressing.
