Until now I was using Balsamiq Mockups, Axure and tools like that but recently I've realized that for some purposes could be appropriate to use "handmade" HTML with style and interactions and refine it and add interactions throught an iterative process.
But I think for rapid prototyping a framework is needed and have to exists already some goods alternatives that make the life easier to designers/developers.
I've used several different tools to develop prototypes for presentations and user experience testing. Increasingly, I'm hearing more and more chatter regarding Adobe Muse. I'm wondering if anyone has used this to develop rapid prototypes and whether it's worth investing the time and effort to learn.
Anyone recommend an organization/individual/web resource that they've used to receive formal training in Axure RP? In person preferred, but online training will also be quite alright. How much did it cost and what levels of instruction were available? Thanks!
