Learn some practical ways to prototype your idea before committing the time and effort to build it. I’ve always viewed prototyping as a means to an end. Whether I’m building a “looks like” or “works like” prototype, I want to be quick and invest as little time as possible to achieve my goal. I'll share techniques and prototyping tools you can use to get started.

An introduction to Prototyping Your Products Ideas
  • Why would you prototype?
    Prototyping is a fast way to test out any idea. Without having to spend the time and money to actually build it, you can get 80% of the way there with a quick and dirty prototype. Test it with people who would use your product and see what works. If your idea fails, know that you saved a lot of headaches had you gone to build it that way.
  • I'm a big fan of design sprints...
    Design sprints are a way to answer critical questions during a five-day process where you design, prototype, and test ideas with customers. Originally developed at GV (Google Ventures), design sprints use human-centered design and design thinking principles to get you started.
