Web Directions South 2009

In Sydney, Australia late last week we were lucky enough to get along to the Web Directions South 2009 Development and Design conference.

It was great to speak with some of the people who are at the cutting edge of intelligent web technology in Oz. Very cool people with some really cool ideas.  On day 2 our Senior Interaction Designer Grant Robinson presented a great session on rapid prototyping. He showed how the design team at Xero can quickly create a large number of prototypes of each feature that’s going to be added to the software, and compare them to ensure that what we release to our customers is easy to use.

All in all an excellent couple of days full of clever ideas and great interactions. Looking forward to the cool apps and sites that come out of it!
