This is a half-day, hands-on, moderated workshop that will allow you to evaluate different pattern library tools. You will teamed up with others, given a design problem, and assigned one of four pattern tools to use to solve that problem. Afterwards, your team will share its insights about working with that tool.

You don't have to bring a laptop, we'll provide the hardware!

The pattern tools are:
• The Quince Pattern Library
• The Yahoo Design Pattern Library
• The Pattern Library
• Designing Social Interfaces Patterns


This workshop is ideal for anyone tasked with constructing online applications where designers and developers are in frequent contact with each other. Pattern libraries help designers and developers find a common language with which to communicate, and save time by providing solutions to problems without needing to re-invent the wheel.

Interaction designers, developers, project managers, content strategists, and information architects are welcome, as is anyone else seeking to broaden their user experience toolset. Although some familiarity with pattern libraries will be helpful, it is not required.

If you have questions about this workshop, you can submit these to us ahead of time.
