Put down that design tool! We typically turn toward graphic tools like Sketch for wireframing, then export into a presenter like InVision for usability tests. We try our darndest to get the menu functionality to “appear” like code, to fake responsive design, and to audit every hotspot linking to every screenshot. The irony is, we spend more time trying to get non-code looking like code than if we’d used code.
But wait, I’m not a dev! That’s cool. I’ve got you covered. Attendees will be given live demos of existing responsive frameworks, learn how to customize them, and walk away with a foundation for creating their own code prototyping kit (without needing to know how to code). This talk is written for information architects, UI/UX designers, product leads, and researchers.
What you’ll learn: •How to use WordPress to create a content-managed prototype, regardless of what you intend to build your final site in; •Which UI frameworks are cheapest and easiest to “wireframe” with, code-free; and •Why this approach is simpler than many of your sketching tools, arriving at a better and more testable IA/content prototype more quickly.
