    Sorry for the delay. I have uploaded the files and powerpoint. Powerpoint has a new slide with links for references to learning responsive design. http://www.meetup.com/Canton-Ohio-Web-Meetup/files/

    Just a reminder everyone, this meetup WILL NOT be at WRL this time. It will be held at Stark State College in room K100. Message me if you have any questions.

    Hey Jarrod - I have 3 students who said they are going to attend. I will let you know if more respond. K100 is all set - let me know if you need me to bring an extra table for beverages/snacks.

    As I suggested in a previous screen, if you need a meeting place, I can speak to my Campus Director about making the Stark Area Campus of National College' s computer lab available to your group. No guarantees but it would be a useful venue. The Stow campus may also be available if you think that is a better location.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here is a breakdown for the meetup.

    1. Fluid Layouts vs Fixed Layouts. 2. Using media queries to make your site responsive.

    3. Restructuring your site and spotting break points. 4. Getting your new responsive site to work for mobile phones using meta tags.

    5. Improving your media queries to encapsulate your css to avoid breaking design. 6. Inheriting from your CSS.

    7. Organizing your css file system to avoid unnecessary HTTP request.

    8. Using jQuery to help move and format content and your dom elements. 9. Using CSS animations to make smooth transitions between breakpoints.

    I want to make a note that stuff maybe added. I'm still working on the power point and example site but these listed items are pretty much set in stone. Also the meeup will be at Stark State College. The room hasn't been decided yet but I will let everyone know soon. Hope everyone can make it!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
