Guerrilla Usability Toolkit*
In the age of Agile, it's important for teams to get quick feedback on designs to keep sprints moving, but Omnigraffle wireframes are no match for the rich interactions of the modern web. This represents an opportunity for smart developers to create prototypes with working functionality that can be rapidly tested and changed based on incoming data from teammates and users.
Learn from the experiences of two AppNexus UX designers as we take you through the new paradigm of prototyping by using popular open source jQuery libraries such as Bootstrap to quickly test and iterate working interactions. Impress your whole team with real data collected from prototype tests using homegrown or inexpensive services like Crazyegg, Optimizely and Silverback. Understand how to make this a part of your development process and become your team’s guerrilla usability advocate.
