Well, this is Lab #1 after all, so let's see how it goes! Let's get together and do some usability testing! Bring a prototype of whatever you're working on (or join us as a test subject) and we'll take turns testing. Prototypes can be any level of fidelity (paper, clickable mock-up, etc.), but make sure you bring any other resources/materials you need (e.g., recording devices, script, etc.)

    Here are 7 tools I know for UX designers, Invision, Notism, Solidify, Moqups, QuirckTools, UxPin, Proto.io, POP Prototyping on paper, HotGloo, Wireframe.cc. I use invision but like to know what other people are using, and pro and con.

      FYI, I'm the co-founder / CTO at InVision so that's what I use for online prototyping. But, as far as what I use on the desktop, I rock out in Adobe Fireworks 24/7. As far as I'm concerned, it's *the* web-graphics tool. Right now, I'm trying to learn more about Master Pages and Smart Objects.

      Check out https://jetstrap.com­ It's another wireframing app with the added benefit of producing HTML using Bootstrap.

    Hi, this is a great idea. Thanks for starting the group. I'm staring a project on a tablet UI for a smarthome app, controlling energy, electiricity etc. I would like to hear tips on good wireframe tools, and wireframe design best practices. I don't have anything to bring this time, but at #2 hopefully.

    It was very helpful to talk shop with some other pros. I also managed to fit in a usability test. Good stuff.

    I'm super excited to get the ball rolling with Lab #1! Please let me know whether or not you will be bringing a prototype to test or joining us as a test subject (...you can do both if you want ;)

    I'll be posting some links with more information about prototyping and how to get prepared for usability testing in the next couple of days.

    Please feel free to leave any questions you have for me here.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
