[plug] Prototyping and other classes in NYC

NEW SMART EXPERIENCE CLASSES + WORKSHOPS:

<-- PETER MORVILLE COMES TO NYC -->

After having the foresight to co-author the book "Information
Architecture for the World Wide Web" in 1998, Peter is looking
forward again to understand how we'll reconcile the timeless
principles of design and organization with new transmedia models
of interaction, co-creation, tagging, and user participation.
His article "Information Architecture 3.0" [1] drew heated
reactions, and soon he'll bring these ideas to New York in a
workshop [2] to examine how integrating product developmen

The Five Types of Prototypes

So, this whole discussion about making clickable wireframes got me
thinking about something. As I'm working through my book,
interviewing a number of people from different backgrounds, I've come
across 5 different types, or purposes perhaps, for prototype:

1. As a common communication platform–using them to get everyone on
the same page, avoiding misinterpretation of ideas, using them as a
method to show and tell.
2.

Methods for prototyping thick applications

Hello all,

I'm in the process of designing my first major "thick" application( yay! ),
and have run into something of a brick wall in figuring out how to prototype
it. It's a fairly smart client that is less for creating content and more
for managing it, with a database backend. I'm comfortable with paper
prototypes, but I know at some point I'm going to need to go beyond that.

The problem is I don't know how far beyond paper prototypes I need to go.

True or False: In a perfect world we'd all create html clickable wireframes after the static ones have been done

Same format at (static) wireframes, but done in html with all
clickable navigation and intra-copy links leading to the appropriate
pages.

New Book on Prototyping Now Available

I just wanted to let everyone now that Michael Arent, Nevin Berger and I
wrote a book on the practice of effective prototyping, it is published by
Morgan-Kaufman (Elsevier) and is currently available at both physical and
online bookstores.

Our book is written in three parts. The first part covers the Effective
Prototyping process.

"web 2.0" prototyping

Hi!

I'm curious as to how members of this list prototype "web 2.0" sites. How to make a prototype for user testing short of actually making a functioning site?

I currently work with Axure RP (on web 1.0 sites) and feel that it might not be the best tool for the job, but I can't think of anything better at the moment either.

Regards

Prototyping Drag and Drop

I'm curious what people are doing to prototype drag and drop
interactions. Do any of the currently available prototyping tools,
such iRise and Axure, provide drag and drop? Is using HTML and
JavaScript the best option? Is Scriptaculous

http://script.aculo.us/

worth a look?

Thanks!

ANN: Book in Progress on Prototyping

Rosenfeld Media is proud to announce that Todd Zaki Warfel has begun
work on
a book on developing prototypes. "A Practitioner's Guide to Prototyping"
will help you quickly flesh out your design ideas, test your
assumptions,
and gather real-time feedback from users. The book will discuss how
prototypes are more than just a design tool, demonstrating how they
can help
you market a product, gain internal buy-in, and test feasibility with
your
development team.

Todd is a founding partner at Messagefirst, where he focuses on
design-research for consumer and b2b products.

Rapid Prototyping Tools

Hello,

I am looking for a tool that would essentially allow me to make a "paper
prototype" that I can share with a remote participant. I have been
using DENIM (http://dub.washington.edu/denim/)- which does everything I
need. I am looking for an alternative because of performance issues.
Any recommendations?

Communicating Design/ Deliverables

How do those of you who don't actually write code that is eventually used in
the build (both front-end and back-end) communicate your designs and
interaction models?

Here are two possible options-

1. Static mocks (accompanied with documentation for details)
2. Interactive mocks- HTML/JS, Flash, Prototyping tools like Axure (with
little or no documentation- most interactivity defined by prototype)

We currently use static mocks as a part of the design document, behavior
described in tables adjacent to the mocks.
