Episode 4: Paper Prototypes
In the fourth episode of Technovation Girls Video Diaries, we learn about the paper prototyping process. Before starting to code their projects, teams make paper versions of their apps, which help them agree on what screens they need and how they want users to move through their app. Doing this creates a map they can follow when they’re ready to start coding.
