Rapid prototyping is the process of quickly mocking-up early draft versions of a product. A good prototype keeps the complexity out! Build the most important elements into your project, and receive feedback early on.
First, we’ll evaluate the current state of prototyping tools: wireframing, Samantha Warren’s Style Tiles, Keynotopia, and what I call “sketching with code”. Wait, so you’re saying you can create prototypes right in HTML? You betcha.
In the second half we’ll use Twitter Bootstrap to rapidly develop our own HTML/CSS prototype. We’ll get familiar with the fundamentals, the scaffolding, and other Twitter Bootstrap elements. In addition, we’ll also incorporate a variety of external assets for images and typography that will broaden our prototyping toolkit.</p>
