CSS for Rapid Prototyping and Usability Research

Can you believe that it was only a few years ago that we still needed javascript to run animations and dynamically change styles? Web technology and CSS has come so far. Today, we can use CSS3 transitions, flexbox, and other components in order to quickly build beautiful functional apps. With the help of browser development tools iterating on design versions has become faster than ever! In this talk I will cover methods of using CSS to rapidly build functionality in a simple application. I will then show an example of how you can usability test and quickly iterate on different versions of your app. I'll show an example of some of the techniques that we used at Vistaprint to rapidly iterate on a feature and run usability tests.
