Sakai3 tool development; lessons learned from rapid prototyping in jQuery

So this one definitely got me outside of my comfort zone. This is also the first presentation I have given where I did not use even one slide! I seemed to have gotten favorable reactions from the audience – so I am going to share it.

Watch the Screen-cast

Description: Learn how you can use simple HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery technologies to build rapid prototypes that can be quickly user tested in short iterations. Unlike more traditional prototyping methods, jQuery allows you to build fully functional user interfaces that not only aid in the design process, but then actually become the tool code itself.

Presenters: Lance Speelmon, Indiana University
