Prototyping for Interface Driven Architecture: Easing the Transition from Prototype to Application

  • Doug Boude


Interface-Driven Architecture (IDA), as developed by Hal Helms and Clark Valberg, is the idea that one develops the interface design of the application before one actually builds the code for the backend. Having a client sign off on a clickable prototype should make planning the client’s application much simpler. Doug Boude relates his experience on a real-life project using IDA, and explains how some preplanning on aspects of the interface architecture would have made things simpler still.
