    We all have ideas every day whether it is for personal endeavours, work or just for fun. In this session you will learn how to get your ideas out of your head and into a basic clickable/tappable prototype that you can test with real customers or present at your next company meeting. I will briefly run through creating a customer journey supported by personas then delve into a workshop exercise for collaborative user interface design. This will be followed by an overview for sketching common interface controls & navigation methods for mobile devices and finish up with a tool to turn your sketches into clickable prototypes.
