September Meetup Theme: Prototyping in 3 Acts
For our September Meetup, we will be rolling up our sleeves and exploring different exercises and ways to brings ideas to life, and go from concepts on post-it notes to testable prototypes. Through Building to Think, Building to Learn, and Building to Test, we will show how you can bias towards action and use prototyping approaches to flesh out your ideas, get feedback from users, and design tests to gather metrics and data that help validate user desirability for your idea.
As always, come prepared to roll up your sleeves and dive into an experiential workshop with your fellow Meetup members, and meet other innovators from across Seattle and beyond who are passionate about bringing human centered design and creativity into their life, workplace and communities!
