Rapid UI Prototyping

About the Workshop:
Ever wondered how designers of great computer and mobile interfaces were able to predict exactly what you wanted on each screen, and how you wanted it to behave?
Did they design the interface just for you, or do they have a crystal ball that helps them see the future? Are they inside your head, or did they design for multiple possibilities, tested them out with people like you, and figured out what might or might not work? We think it's the last one, and we want everyone to be able to do it.
(Besides, crystal balls are expensive)
