Axure Two-Day Bootcamp - April 22-23, 2017

It’s time to learn Axure, and learn it right. By Monday, you’ll be rapid prototyping and iterating yourself, and have more powerful ways to communicate your ideas to stakeholders. We’ll take you through everything from the basics to advanced techniques in one weekend. Best practices will be stressed throughout, teaching good habits, time-saving tips, and tricks to enhance your workflow and deliverables.

You’ll learn via “real life” examples in a project tutorial format: By the end of the course, you’ll complete an advanced prototype of an ecommerce website. You’ll get a tutorial document for taking notes and referring back to later in your own projects. Later you can also use the official completed project Axure file to investigate how something was built, learn from it, and reuse elements.

UX Strategy Masterclass with Jaime Levy

UX strategy is a process that should be started before the design or development of a digital product commences.  It is a practice that when done empirically is a better guarantee of a successful digital product than just crossing your fingers, designing some wireframes, and then writing a bunch of code. It's the method by which you validate that your solution actually solves a problem for real customers in a dynamic marketplace. Take this masterclass to experience a deep dive into the subject matter with both lectures and hands-on exercises. 

This event will likely sell out! Details and registration here!
