Have you been working on something cool? Whether you just finished up, or are about to start a really amazing project, we want to hear all about it.
AWDG is hosting a “Show and Tell” event Thursday June 27th at 7:00pm at Hypepotamus. A handful of your fellow Webbies will talk about the neat things they’re up to, and you get to ask them questions.
The format is super casual, with 5 minutes of sharing, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A from the group.
Thanks to JuiceAnalytics, for picking up the tab for food and drinks!

Fabio will share his wisdom on creating responsive email. The responsive movement isn't just for websites; HTML email is in on the game as well. And while email development may be a messy venture at best, building mobile-friendly templates is no longer a dark art. It's absolutely necessary.

Patrick Boggs — Advisory UI Engineer at Manheim
RWD Retrofitting Your Enterprise Site - How to Train Your Dragons. Embarking on a Responsive Design retrofit on an existing website can seem daunting. How old, bloated or complex is your code? Is your site already fluid? Is your design team willing to work within the constraints of your markup? How do you convince stakeholders of the value? Patrick will discuss the approach his team is using for Manheim.com a large automotive auction site. Given the opportunity to "innovate," a small team of front end devs set out to prove a retrofit was not only doable, but not nearly as big an effort as it seemed. Patrick will share 20% on how to do the RWD; 80% how to sell the idea and show it can be done.
