About This Class

In this class we will go over how to create a simple IOT prototype with Protopie. Along the way, we'll learn the basics of protopie & how to effectively use this method of prototyping to get better user feedback earlier. 

IOT products are generally expensive and time consuming to prototype. This leaves a lot of room for speculation about product functionality until users can actually interact with tangible, believable prototype. The foundation of this process can be used to develop highly interactive prototypes early in the process, without spending much time or money. Ultimately, guessing less, and creating better products faster. 

For this class we'll be using protopie and the protopie player mobile app: https://www.protopie.io/
