Event Details

It’s Your Turn to Talk.

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!



Who’s Speaking?

Fabio CarneioUser Experience Designer at MailChimp

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.


Brad Weaver — Creative Director at Suckerpunch Studios

Responsibly Responsive: No Flight Required. We've been told to design for multiple devices - allowing even the simplest mobile device to use our sites. Most concerns center around emerging markets, so if your site's users are local, no worries, right? Brad will share the lessons learned from his latest project.

 

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. 

 

Chad Altemose — Designer/Developer

Let the computer do the work. Use modern site generators to automate the mundane tasks of developing web sites so you can focus on what's fun and important: content and semantics, style and function. Learn about what modern tools are available, and how they can help you. Chad will share his recent experiences with a variety of generators, and discuss how to pick which tools best suit different needs.


Eric Chan — Developer

Eric has been working on a web app software for his startup, JumboLogic. It allows you to go way beyond what is currently possible in terms of requirement tools typically used now (wireframes, sitemaps, etc.). Eric and his team believe in visually powerful tools to convey requirments since they better engage users and customers.


Stephen Thomas — Front End Architect

Continental, A Symbol Font for Europe. A quick introduction to special purpose symbol fonts and how to use them to create simple diagrams and map-based visualizations in pure HTML/CSS. No Javascript nor APIs required.


Parking

Parking is available in the Biltmore parking deck, as well as metered spaces along the surrounding streets. There is also a pay lot, centrally located between Hypepotamus and Ecco, on Cypress Street, between 6th and 7th Streets.
