Let's Code to prototype

3 hrs Workshop | Categeory: UI | Target Audience: Anyone who wants to power-up their Design toolset using a programming environment like JavaScript, React and Chrome DevTools. Some exposure to programming will be a huge plus and will make it more fun..

In the spectrum of prototyping tools, the ones that are most powerful always gravitate towards the code. When it comes to power of expression, nothing beats programming. So let’s pull up our sleeves and dig into code. We will use React, an easy-to-learn and powerful UI framework to build our Prototypes. We will start with a quick tour of JavaScript and the React framework, pick up some fun libraries and use the Chrome DevTools for live exploration.

Three key takeaways

  • Learn JavaScript in under an hour.

  • Learn the React framework for UI Prototyping.

  • Adopt techniques for live prototyping inside the Chrome DevTools.
