Workshops to improve online experiences

Next week I’m doing a workshop on Rapid Prototyping in Flash (no experience with Flash necessary). In addition to the hands-on work, I also show a lot of different prototypes that I’ve built over the years, including several from the very early days of Xero and a few more recent ones. As I’ve said in the past, rapid prototyping is essential to how we do things at Xero.

The next workshop is happening Wednesday 20 August. Here’s a brief summary of the what the workshop provides:

  • Hands-on lessons for building prototypes in Flash (no experience in Flash necessary)
  • Insights into the process of design iterations
  • Insights into working with developers, investors and other stakeholders
  • Receive a design template with a library of design elements

When I did this workshop last month there was a great mix of designers, developers and biz dev people who all stuck around for an extra hour! Be sure to register ASAP, because it sold out last time and registration is limited to 10 people to make sure everyone has quality hands-on time.
