Come to Dev Workshop Indy's first day-long event. We'll be applying everything we've talked about in the past three months (Bootstrap, LESS, and Greensock) and building a responsive and animated site that will make your friends jealous. No need to have come to any or all of our previous workshops; we'll run over the basics again to make sure you're not lost. The final site will not only look good, but will have wonderful little animations that will be sure to make users smile.
This 6 hour workshop will take you from design file to working application, while touching on many new technologies along the way. The base file is a fairly generic layout, so you will be able to customize the look and feel of your application after completion.
6 hours of pure code is a lot, so we'll feed you some breakfast and lunch to keep you energized along the way.
By the end of this workshop you will have
* A responsive site that looks good on most devices
* LESS css, using all the bells and whistles (nest selectors, variables, caclculations)
* Site layout via Bootstrap (using its built-in grid framework)
* Animated features using TweenLite.js (parallax, build-ins, and hover/touch interactivity)
Bootstrap is a powerful front-end framework created by Twitter for faster and easier web development. It encourages semantic HTML, uses a robust set of CSS classes to command an amazingly sturdy cross browser experience.
GreenSock's TweenLite library is great for adding animations and interactivity.
Lunch will be provided and we are attempting to get bagels and such for breakfast.
