This workshop is now sold out. For August workshop please visit: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/full-day-axure-prototyping-workshop-august-14th-tickets-16623490307?aff=es2
This workshop is geared towards accelerating beginners to an intermediate prototype skill level – you are guaranteed to walk out having mastered dynamic panels and repeaters! Even if you’ve never used Axure before, or have used it mainly for wireframing without adding interaction, you will leave knowing how to build interactive prototypes.
Our learning material is interactive and addresses the learning curve that Axure presents to beginners by introducing easy-to-solve Axure Puzzles. The idea is that you can concentrate on building a strong foundation behind the interaction logic , and once the logic is mastered, you will have all the confidence to bring your learnings into Axure.
Your Learning Material
Axure London Puzzles
During the workshop you will be submerged in a hands-on learning experience by solving Axure Puzzles.
For every puzzle you solve, a digital Mozilla Open Badge will be issued. Take a look at some of the UX designers that have already earned Axure Puzzle Badges!
If you want to take a quick look at what an Axure Puzzle looks like watch this video.
By the time you leave the workshop, you will be able to solve intermediate Axure Puzzles like this one. After the workshop you can always continue sharpening up your Axure skills by playing with the puzzles on-the-go.
Introduction to interactive prototyping
After breaking the ice for a few minutes we will go over what is interactive prototyping. We will then talk about when you should use an interactive prototype instead of a simple click-through prototype, before wrapping up the discussion with the best practices to opt for when carrying out user research with interactive prototypes.
Introduction to Axure and a quick overview of its potential
During this section of the training we will briefly go over a few examples of very complex Axure prototypes in order to underline Axure’s endless possibilities, with the sole purpose of getting everyone excited about learning how to use Axure.
Discovering the Axure interface and how to make the best use of it.
This section is intended to quickly go over all the different areas available within Axure and the tools available when prototyping. The main purpose of this overview is to help you locate each of the tools available for later in the day when we start building prototypes.
How to convert an existing website into a prototype within minutes.
The first hands-on exercises that you will embark on will be taking an already existing website and prototyping it in Axure. We will then add functionality on top of it.
Building the logic behind an interactive prototype with Axure Puzzles—The Basics.
Learning the logic behind some of the most common interactions will lead to you becoming very successful at designing interactive prototypes in the future, therefore we spend a good amount of the day going over interaction logic and effective ways to apply it to Axure.
How to fake a database with repeaters
Repeaters are among the most difficult widgets to tackle in Axure, and hence we want to make sure you become a repeater ninja. We will go over how to use repeaters to build robust and very realistic prototypes.
How to write specifications with Axure within minutes
This is one of Axure’s biggest perks, the ability to “spit-out” specs in no time, and hence why we will be working on the best way to make good use of this perk.
With a dual degree in Engineering and Education, Sandra also has extensive knowledge in developing curriculums and has previous experience working with clients such as NASA, GE and Scholastic.
Her in-depth experience as an educator has inspired her to develop a unique approach to teaching Axure, where students are encouraged to learn by solving our exclusive Axure Puzzles, intentionally designed to teach all levels of Axure features and the logic principles necessary to make interactive Axure prototypes.
The Office Group
Our training will take place at The Office Group, which is a 5 minute
walk from Farringdon Station. The building has original exposed brick, wood flooring and steel columns in this Victorian Warehouse.
You will also be provided with healthy PRET lunch, consisting of delicious brain-food to get the most out of your training experience.

Will food be provided?
Yes! Your ticket includes breakfast, all the day snacks and beverages as well as lunch. Our venue, Wallace Space, will be providing the food. Here is how they discribe their food on their website:
"Inspiring, not sleep-inducing food, our menus are seasonal, fresh and well thought out to provide tasty and stimulating meals in a relaxed, open plan kitchen.
Rumour has it (or so our clients tell us) that our food is some of the best in the area for working lunches.
What you want when you want it: help yourself to tea, Infusions, freshly brewed Fair-trade coffee, juices, soft drinks, retro-sweets, cookies, fruit and nuts-all day long.
We can also provide nibbles and drinks for that end-of-day team-building chill out, canapés for parties or full-on dinners to help presentations or just plain dinner for dinner’s sake."
What can/can't I bring to the event?
You MUST brind your laptop with Axure 7 installed on it. Axure provides a 30-day trial which gives you the perfecto opportunity to figure out if it is the right software for you and your organization.
Axure London won't be able to provide licenses for this training, but if you contact firstname.lastname@example.org within a few days before the event, we may be able to help you extend your expired license (no warranties).
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please email any quesitons to email@example.com
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Yes, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to any one in your organization, with the caveat that tickets are not refundable.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
There is no need for that, unless you have a ticket that has been transfered, then you do need to have the print out with you.
What is the refund policy?
No refunds only tranfers.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
That is fine, as long as the ticket has been transfered to you by someone else within your organization.
