#4 in a series
What do you need to do?
The prototype shows you what you need to do. You then need to convert that into a list of tasks that you need to accomplish.
You can write the list as any kind of document. Don’t get stuck on figuring out the most fantastic task list app. Just write the stuff down.
What do you need to know?
As you create the task list, mark the items that you don’t yet know how to do. (It’s okay if that are all the items, but you probably know more than you realize.)
For the zoonoses site I’m developing, here’s an initial list of tasks for getting started:
- organize my file structure
- setup the base files
- implement a rough mockup in HTML/CSS based on the prototype sketch
Once you have this very rough prototype as actual site that you can work with, then start iterating. Add different elements. Build on each part incrementally. Before you know it, you’ll have a website.
