>Todd Warfel, a partner with Message First, a Philadelphia based design and
>usability firm, will discuss and teach you how to create and test paper
>prototypes. This is a session for all levels of experience – beginner to
>old hand.
>
>Mistakes and oversights during the design and development phases can be
>costly, if not detrimental to a business. Catch them before you launch with
>paper prototyping. If you feel like you already know “paper prototyping,”
>then you should still attend. We’ll have a brief introduction, discuss the
>strengths, weaknesses, when prototypes are appropriate, and what to expect
>from them. By the time you leave, you’ll be equipped to create and use
>paper prototypes for your own projects. This presentation will teach
>participants a framework for creating and testing paper prototypes. At the
>close of the presentation, you’ll see the real world design we’ve created
>using these techniques for a next generation VoIP product for a national
>telecom. We’ll discuss the techniques we used and show you how we used
>paper prototyping and testing to create a design with a measurable
>improvement over the original design.
