Get it Done Series: Build a Proof-of-Concept Workshop
Cohosted with IT Services, this workshop will walk through the first step in translating an idea from an abstract concept into something concrete. A proof-of-concept is a disposable version of your idea that simply needs to do what the name implies: prove that it’s possible to realize the concept. In the field of web development, this might be a simple web page with nothing but one button that generates Twitter feed output when it’s clicked. It let’s us know if we’re on the right track and can be an important step before creating a prototype of our idea.
We’ll discuss how to start developing an idea, how to focus only on the critical problems that need to be solved, and what it means that a proof of concept isn’t meant to be a a fully useful product. We’ll look at several examples, including ones supplied by you!, and finish by discussing how to transition from making a proof-of-concept to making a prototype.
