Book Review: Effective Prototyping for Software Makers

Over on UX Matters, Leo Frishberg has written an extensive review of a new book on prototyping called “Effective Prototyping for Software Makers”.

Leo’s conclusion stated:

“In spite of the challenges this book presents to the casual reader, I would recommend it to anyone who considers prototyping an integral part of the software development process. If you have never used prototyping to make your products more usable and better targeted—while ultimately reducing your workload and simultaneously improving your code—this book provides a thorough discussion of the topic.”

The entire review can be found at this link.

The authors also have a website where you can download sample chapters and learn more about the authors.

“Visit our wite at www.effectiveprototyping.com.  Maybe this will help inform your decision about our book.

Once you own the book we will use this site to keep you posted on updated materials. For example, we have some prototyping samples as well as worksheets in our book. These will be available (in their native editable formats) via the web site; as will updates as we get more reader and usage feedback.”
