The new course “Learn Quartz Composer and Facebook Origami in 5 Days” by Scott Hurff is out – and we got 5 copies for HUI readers.
Update: The giveaway has ended! Find out who the winners are and get a special HUI discount on the course.
Intro – So what is Quartz Composer and Facebook Origami all about?
As designers, it’s not hard to see that our world is changing. We’re transitioning from a Web-based point-and-click world to mobile, where all the cutting-edge design is now happening. Instead of a click, it’s a tap. Or a gesture. Or a swipe. Or a who-knows-what.
We can’t continue building products in the same old way i.e. with Photoshop and static mockups. We need more capable tools to get the creative interactions we dream up out of our heads faster.
Ever since Facebook released Paper, we realized what we could create if we just had the right tools in our hands. Well, we have those tools now — in Quartz Composer & Origami. The same tools used to prototype Facebook Paper. These tools let you create the interactions you have in your head without knowing any code. Even better, you can see the changes you make on the fly. That means you don’t have to wait and see if your ideas will work.
But learning Quartz Composer is notoriously difficult. That’s where the Quartz Composer & Facebook Origami Crash Course comes in.
In five days, you’ll be fully capable of creating interactive prototypes in Quartz Composer & Facebook Origami to present to your engineering team, your clients, or whomever. We’ve teamed up with Scott Hurff and Chris Slowik to give away five free copies (a $75 value!) for you to learn how to build interactive prototypes.
