Design Prototyping: Bringing Wireframes to Life
See how "design prototyping" differs from other techniques, and learn how to determine when a prototype is needed. Understand how to tailor your prototype to a particular audience, gather techniques for bringing paper sketches to life, and how interactive sketching can fit in an Agile process.
