A framework is utilized to maximize efficiency and rapidly design a web site or an app. Inside of a framework you will find reusable code snippets, a grid, and responsive pattern libraries which include predefined sets of navigational patterns, typefaces, buttons, tabs, and more.

On March 5, 2014 at Eventbrite HQ, we are bringing together the creators of two of the most popular frameworks on the web –  Bootstrap and Foundation. 

Mark Otto, co-creator of Bootstrap (formerly known as Twitter Bootstrap) and Jonathan Smiley, co-creator of Zurb's Foundation, will cover:

  • How a pattern library influences and improves a site's overall user experience
  • The importance of establishing reusable code snippets which maximize efficiency in product development
  • How to define and setup design patterns within an interface
  • The pros and cons of implementing Bootstrap or Foundation as a framework.
  • Using a pre-existing framework vs. designing your own from scratch.

Designer at GitHub
Mark Otto is a designer living and working in San Francisco. Originally from Wisconsin, he freelanced his way through high school and college before dropping out and moving to California to work at a design firm, ZURB, in 2007. There he designed and developed dozens of projects with clients large and small, including a website for Britney Spears. In early 2010, after a two-and-a-half year stint at ZURB, he left to become a product designer at Twitter.

At Twitter, Otto worked on numerous projects including the Promoted Products campaign tools and badges, during #NewNewTwitter, the Twitter Help Center, and several internal tools. He also created the popular open source front-end toolkit Bootstrap with @fat.

In late 2012, he left Twitter to join the folks at GitHub. He is currently a designer working on GitHub Enterprise,, and other miscellany.
