UX Class: Rapid prototyping training

UX Class: Rapid prototyping training

Whether you create websites, mobile apps, line of business apps, or games, you'll benefit from this rapid prototyping course. Learn how to reduce the time to build, while improving the experience for your users. This one-day rapid prototyping course is suitable for anyone involved in the app design and development process, including: business analysts, UX designers, application developers, web developers, and product managers. Because the course is focused on process rather than a specific platform, it is applicable whether creating apps running on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS, Chrome, or HTML5.

Our Rapid Prototyping class is a one-day class that allows attendees to create and follow-through a project from start to prototype. Students can choose an app or website, or focus on a work-related project for this class. Many companies organize group training for this topic and set up teams of 5. This not only makes this a great learning experience, but a team-building opportunity as well. The pace is quick and very dynamic.
