About This Class

Have you ever had an app idea (come on, I know you have), tried to explain it to someone, but couldn't get your point across? Yeah. We all know that blank stare. Encouraging. 

This class will teach you how to use one of my favorite UX tools, Balsamiq, to quickly set up wireframing for rapid prototyping...meaning that you'll be able to show - not tell - your latest and greatest web or mobile application project. 

Balsamiq is extremely easy-to-use and it's well-received by the creative community because it's seamless, easy to understand, and creates low fidelity wireframing in a snap. It's like sketching on a whiteboard, but via computer. Other wireframing tools are expensive, really hard to learn, and have at least 14 features that you'll probably never use. 

What you'll learn:

  • Get acquainted with the system
  • Learn how to navigate it
  • Discover what each button is for 
  • Use the tools and apply them to the canvas
  • Create a mock-up of an application

At the end of the class, you'll be able to create your own mock-up or follow along with the example we did.

If you're an entrepreneur, product manager, project manager, or creative freelancer then I highly recommend you start using this tool, you really don’t want to miss the opportunity to learn rapid prototyping with Balsamiq.
