Cacoo team always wants to provide events that will benefit our users the most. Hence wireframe diagram is one of the most popular diagrams created in Taiwan, we decided to have a workshop dedicated to wireframe making only. After we announced this news to Taiwan users, our tickets sold out within 2 hours. As we wanted to keep this event small, so each attendee would be taken care of. We had to apologize to many users who couldn’t sign up. But don’t worry, we will have more useful workshops and events in 2016. So please stay tuned with us by subscribing our newsletter or follow our SNS.
On 12/9 we held our first Cacooup wireframe workshop in Taipei, Taiwan. The event kicked off by Cacoo CEO Masa’s warming opening speech, providing the latest Cacoo updates and upcoming plans, just to give you all a head up, we will launch a very important feature update next year and we think you will LOVE it!!
Ni Hao, I’m Masa~
We were extremely honored to have one of the best website design companies in Fukuoka D-Zero
to join us in this workshop. They flew to Taiwan to share their Cacoo user experience and provided some tips on how to create a good wireframe.D-Zero’s Senior Director Mr. Kuroki shared how they use Cacoo in their workflow and also pointed out the importance of creating wireframe for different roles. He demonstrated the essential elements which must be considered while making wireframes for designers, developers, clients and oneself. He also highlighted Cacoo’s collaboration and in-app chat helped his team to communicate well and they were able to design around 300 website last year! Their customers including: Nishi-Nippon Railroad,Fukuoka Bank, world famous tobacco company and many more.

We divided 38 attendees into 7 groups. They had 1hr 15 mins to make a homepage wireframe based on the fake company we have created for them. The teams had 2 minutes to present their finished wireframes to D-zero to judge. Attendees applied what they have just learnt from Mr. Kuroki and Cacoo team to their diagrams.
Once again, we had a group of wonderful event volunteers to help us out. Each group had a volunteer to assist them with some basic Cacoo inquiries. Of course, we had Cacoo team on the site to support more advanced technical inquiries. Mr. Kuroki also visited each group and provided some very useful and important feedbacks. There were endless laughters and chatting, the atmosphere was very uplifting. Attendees collaborated well with each other, even it was their first time meeting each other.

D-Zero selected winner “Gourp 1” as their wireframe was extremely clear to understand, their concept was spot on. The winning group was given a year of Cacoo plan as reward, so all of them could make more use of Cacoo and collaborate with others.

This is our first attempt to held a workshop in Taiwan, the outcome was great. Cacoo team was excited,not only we have taught attendees knowledge on wireframe making, we also promoted collaboration as well as providing networking opportunities between Japan and Taiwan. After event, attendees requested us to created a private community so they could stay in touch and talk more about wireframes. CacooUp wirerfame workshop gave Cacoo team a clear idea of what kind event our users like and it was FUN to get connected to users. We hope to see more users in different cities in 2016.
