Interested in prototyping,* but not sure where to start? Overwhelmed by the tools out there? Want to make sure you’re keeping up on current tools? Come join us for an evening dedicated to harnessing the power of prototyping!

We’ll begin with a round of lightning talks from six UX designers on their tool/method of choice (each only gets five minutes to present). Then, get ready for a deeper dive - we’ll have three rounds of breakout sessions so you can pick which tools you’d like to learn more about.

Lightning talks are condensed, face-paced presentations. Each talk will be about one prototyping tool and will include:
• An overview of the prototyping tool or technique
• Pros and cons
• What types of prototypes the tool is great for

Breakout sessions will be hosted by the presenter and include:
• Working examples of prototypes
• A basic behind-the-scenes view of a prototype
• An opportunity to ask the presenter questions

We'll be serving heavy hors d'oeuvres for the event, which is provided by Intelligaia!

What tools will be represented?
Here's our lineup for the evening:

• Keynote – Andrés Richner, Intelligaia
• Axure – James Gartrell and Erik Johnson, Purpose UX
• InVision – Emily Parker, WillowTree
• Principle – Joe Bond, Centerline Digital
• Jekyll – Rick Evans, RoleModel Software
• Marvel – Graham Langdon, RoleModel Software

exploreUX events are open to anyone with an open, curious, and questioning mind, whether you are currently a UX practitioner or not.

*For clarification, this event will be on tools for creating interactive prototypes, not tools that produce clickable wireframes (Balsamiq, OmniGraffle, etc.).
