About the presentation: Rapid Prototyping: Build Better Websites While Saving Time & Money
Whether you’re new to building websites or have been doing it for a while, rapid prototyping can help make your processes more efficient. With a focus on front-end development, we’ll go through what rapid prototyping is, tools like Foundation and SASS, and best practices to follow in ensuring your sites are optimized for mobile and accessibility. We’ll review a practical example in a case study following the typical rapid prototyping process and how it significantly reduces design, development and review time without compromising quality or compatibility.
Design critique submissions: We will take design submissions from the group and give it a usability and design critique ending with a list of suggestions. If you have designs for us to review, please send them to me.
