Browser Prototyping

for designers

Learn to make interactive prototypes with code

18th June, at Lighthouse, Brighton

Use code without becoming a developer

Designers who can code have a competitive edge. It gives them a new way of exploring their materials, a different tool for communicating their ideas, and a richer understanding of the possibilities of technology.

But teaching yourself to code is hard! Most learning materials assume that you’re already a developer or that you want to become one. They don’t tell you how to use code in your design work.

Code as a part of your design process

If you’re a designer, this course is for you. In one intensive day it will teach you how to make interactive prototypes in a web browser, not how to become a web developer. As part of a small group you will play with code and get a taste of how you can use it in your work.

How much?

Tickets are £235 per person.

Who is it for?

This workshop is for designers with no coding experience — if you’re an absolute beginner who wants to find out whether coding can help you with your job, this is for you!

What will you make?

This is a hands-on workshop, so expect to be writing code all day. We will make a browser prototype for a simple mobile app. You will learn how to build an interface using HTML and CSS, and make it interactive using JavaScript with a little help from jQuery.

Why use a web browser?

A web browser is a versatile tool for interactive prototyping. Everyone has a browser, so anything you make is easy to share. Building prototypes in a real material is helpful for exploring what’s possible.

What do you need to bring?

You will need to bring your own laptop to the workshop. Please install Chrome and Sublime Text 2 before the session.

What’s included in the price?

A full day of hands-on learning in sunny* Brighton. Lunch, drinks and biscuits are included. You’ll also receive an ebook version of the workshop so you can refer back to it.
