BA Thesis

Learning the visual programming language vvvv for prototyping.

Prototyping Interfaces is a concept book teaching the visual programming language vvvv for prototyping interactions. Conceptualized, designed, and printed during the last term at the University of Design in Schwäbisch Gmünd, it served as my Bachelor of Arts thesis.

The book has five sections: the history of visual programming, the importance of prototyping for interaction design, an introduction to vvvv, an introduction to Arduino, and several tutorials. The tutorials themselves consist of an introduction to the technology used, an industry example, and building instructions for an interactive prototype.

The tutorials themselves consist of an introduction to the technology used, an industry example, and building instructions for an interactive prototype.

The book is now available to purchase after my fellow BA colleagues and me, with the addition of Jochen Leinberger, revised the concept book and published it through Verlag Hermann Schmidt. For more information, visit the respective project website, amazon, or the project page.

The thesis was supervised by Ralf Dringenberg and Hartmut Bohnacker.
