Communication with Flexible Documentation
The fundamental process we follow of how we understand design problems, users, and content hasn’t changed much, but the documentation we deliver is a bit in flux. We’re experts in the field of solving problems with design in a digital world. However, device fragmentation forces us to think through flexible experiences with portable content and in turn, to rethink how we communicate to our clients throughout the process.
In this session, you will learn proven documentation, or better yet communication techniques using simple HTML and PHP to get us to a living breathing prototype, earlier in the process. All the while helping us as communicate flexible design decisions to both clients and team members.

HTML Prototyper’s Toolbox
Without the correct tools for fast and efficient HTML prototyping, even the best process can be deemed too expensive to attempt. However, the desire to be able to test one’s design in the browser, at a low cost is always the goal for experience designers. The HTML Prototyper’s Toolbox is a set of layout patterns and components, built on top of Twitter’s Bootstrap framework that NiceUX uses to create rapid coded prototypes.
This session, Jon will teach you a pragmatic process and method to using the toolbox to create high fidelity HTML prototypes in the same amount of time you would spend with other prototyping methods. Simply knowing the basics of how front-end code works, we’ll be able to use the toolbox to create a prototype in 30 minutes.
