Advanced Interactions: "Alan's Psychedelic Widget - Re-Using Cases"

Presenter: Ritch Macefield

Ritch will present his contribution to the “Practitioner’s Corner” of Ezra and Elizabeth’s new Axure book: “Prototyping Essentials with Axure”. This covers a technique for re-using cases across multiple events and widgets; which makes managing and updating complex prototypes significant easier and faster, and less prone to errors. The session is targeted at intermediate to advanced users and assumes familiarity with: radio groups, global variables, local variables and Axure’s function builder.

Adaptive Views and Responsive Web Design

Presenters: Jim Hobart and Saikat Mandal (USA)

Abstract:

Responsive design has become the leading technique for delivering multi-device solutions.

Adaptive views allows you to prototype a solution and adapt the display for different viewports to simulate response designs.

Learn how we have used Adaptive views to build real-world prototypes for our clients. We’ll share what we have learned including pitfalls, complexity,  and managing this new capability for visualizing requirements.

Outline:

  • Why adaptive views?
  • Why Axure vs. prototyping in ‘Code’ - Bootstrap, Foundation frameworks?
  • Real-world example of adaptive view and responsive design for an enterprise application
  • Lessons learned

Gathering Feedback from Stakeholders

All those will utilise different deliverables created with Axure RP, the sharpest tool in my UX tool-shed. I turned stakeholder interviews upside down, and it became something awesome.
