Object-Oriented-Design (OOD): A Wireframing and Specifications Technique for Rich Interactions and Complex Business Logic


2:10 - 2:35pm on Sunday, February 8 2009 in Hotel Vancouver Fairmont, Saturna Room

How to document and specify screens, whose functionality greatly varies by business logic or rich interactions, has been a reoccurring topic on the IxDA mailing list. During this talk, attendees will see a technique, that has been used and refined over the past three years, to completely design and document screens with over one million possible configurations. The presenter will focus on the foundations of the technique, with the goal of enabling attendees to easily adapt it to their own purposes. Lessons learned and how the technique can be used to form a strong working relationship with developers and QA groups will be highlighted.
