The Art of the Prototype

Jessica Edwards UX Developer Canva

Building a prototype is a great way to get feedback on a feature without dealing with the red tape that comes with engineering. As an engineer, you might be tasked with building a prototype and become instantly wary: every 'prototype' you've built before ended up in production and you've been suffering from the technical debt ever since, or it was too far removed from reality to truly answer any questions.

But prototyping is still valuable. Not only is it a useful tool to have on hand in product development, it's also a great way to hone the craft of writing code outside the scope of engineering. So, how do you reap the benefits of prototyping without suffering from "prototypes last forever"? This talk will cover strategies to ensure your time is spent effectively, and how to communicate and present your work to stakeholders so everyone is on the same page.
