After the success of our first meetup, it's time for another monthly meeting (every third thursday).

This month we will have the renowned author of phpDocumentor 2 (previous DocBlox), Mike van Riel, come teach us about Responsive Design for Developers and why we need to worry about this, even not being front end developers.

This month we are going to meet in the WEBclusive offices in the famous Rozengracht. See you there!

Talk

"Going Responsive for Developers"

Designing and creating a website that is suitable for both the desktop and mobile is a unique kind of challenge. In the past years we have seen the rise of Responsive Design; a methodology and mindset on how to make a website suitable for both platforms.

During this talk we'll design a new website using Responsive Design and show what considerations and design decisions are to be encountered along the way.

    Nice talk, also understandable for someone with only basic understanding of coding. And good atmosphere too!

    The social part was great, the talk was not so great... It wasn't about PHP and I think most attendees were expecting something a bit more technical.
    But it is always a good idea to look at other disciplines and personally I didn't know about Twitter Bootstrap, so I learned something new.

    Talk was too long, not related to PHP / backend development at all.
