The Talent Learning Journey

Workshop №4: Rapid Prototyping

During the fourth workshop, our talents took deep dive on how to translate their innovative solution into a ready-to-use prototype!

Before we enter the crucial steps on the road of setting up your prototype let us explain the concept real quick: a prototype is something that you create with the explicit understanding that it is not the finished experience but instead is intended to be a stepping stone along the way to the finished experience. Hence, it is all about trying out an idea, testing it, learning, and communicating it to others. Always remember, the primary goal of every prototype is to evaluate your idea! So, let’s jump right into it and boost your prototyping knowledge!
