UX Show & Tell | October 2012
Last week, UX Show & Tell (@uxshowandtell) held its latest event at the Nclud office. The theme this month was "Wireframes and Prototypes" and featured three great presentations by Panayiotis Karabetis (@pkarabetis), Christine Ryu (@UX_ryu) and Brittany Mederos @Brim. Bonus points for all of the presenters channeling the Halloween spirit and wearing costumes.
If you haven't attended a UX Show & Tell previously, the format is quite straight forward, each presenter to have 15 min to show and tell with time at the end for discussion. Panayiotis and Christine both shared recent projects in which they created interactive HTML prototypes for their clients. Axure is software they used and lets you generate an interactive HTML website wireframe or UI mockup without coding. A very useful and powerful tool to have in your UX arsenal.
Brittany shared a recent side project she is working on. She described her process of adapting techniques (including her fond use of Action Method notepads) to rearrange existing content more effectively for the client.
So if you haven't had a chance to attend any UX Show & Tell events yet, keep a look out for future dates @uxshowandtell. Highly recommended and I will be checking out Axure as well thanks to hearing the presentations.
