During the past year I have provided training in Axure RP Pro to many
different companies, but for the first time I am opening up classes to the
general public! So if you work as a freelancer, for a small agency, or are
one of few UX designers at a company, now is your chance to learn Axure
inside and out!

>From October 13 - 15 I'll be presenting Basic and Advanced prototyping
classes at the gorgeous new Minneapolis Central Library:

- Monday October 13: Basic Prototyping
- Tuesday October 14: Basic Prototyping
- Wednesday October 15: Advanced Prototyping

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN IN THE BASIC CLASS

- The benefits of prototyping
- How to create an interactive prototype of a simple content site
- How to use masters & custom widgets to reduce re-work
- Techniques for creating prototypes that are visually similar to existing
sites
- How to document your design for developers and other stakeholders
- Best practices for interactive prototype testing
- How to collaborate with others using Axure
- How to work with Axure efficiently

elements

PRICING & REGISTRATION

Each class costs $599, but if you sign up for the Basic & Advanced classes
together (10/14 - 15) you will save %20 off your total cost!

To register online, go here: http://axuretraining.eventbrite.com/

If you're considering one or both of these classes, I encourage you to act
quickly. Each class is limited to 15 students, so I expect them to sell out
quickly.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

I'm currently a Senior User Experience Consultant and Business Analyst at
Evantage Consulting, and I've worked in the User Experience industry since
1998. I am extremely passionate about the benefits of prototyping and
testing throughout the design phase. I began working with Axure in 2005 and
I've used it to prototype a diverse array of systems, from simple content
sites to complex Web 2.0 content management systems. At the 2007 IA Summit,
I presented the half-day workshop, "Prototyping RIAs in Axure." The workshop
sold out before the conference began. During the Summit, Axure tapped me to
develop more full-fledged training courses for their customers. I did so and
I've been presenting both the Basic and Advanced classes to companies large
and small since September 2007.

Any questions? Feel free to email me... on or off-list.
