Last Skyrize of 2008

Next Wednesday I’m doing my final workshop of 2008 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 new 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 26 November in Wellington. 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 video tutorial plus design templates with a library of design elements

I’ve been doing these workshops for the past few months and there’s always a great mix of designers, developers and biz dev people attending. Be sure to register ASAP, because it sells out every time and registration is limited to 10 people to make sure everyone has quality hands-on time.
