CSS3, HTML5, SASS, LESS, Knockout, Ember, Angular, D3, flat / responsive design…are you finding it tough to figure out what's what in the ever changing landscape of front-end development? Or perhaps just interested to see what cool stuff people are doing with all these new tools at their disposal?
Then welcome to another edition FrontEndParty, the first NOLA front-end developer / designer meetup group. On the last Thursday of each month, we host three presentations (between 5 to 15 minutes each) on the front-end world from developers and designers around New Orleans.
For our next meetup, on June 27th and sponsored in part by The Dojo, we'll have these talks lined up:
Digital Product Development Lead @ Baton Rouge Business Report
Dylan will show us the magic of static site generation, and how you can build a simple (but powerful!) content-management system with Prose.io and GitHub.
Having built sites for the biggest names in rock, Lee gives us a tour of his most useful tricks surrounding server-side image processing.
Developer @ iSeatz
Cameron will dive into the CSS spec and show us the secrets and ideas behind understanding the CSS Visual Formatting Model.
Meetups start at around 7:00pm at The Dojo (http://www.dojo.la/dojola/home) in the Exchange Centre at 935 Gravier Street, Suite 1650 (go to the 16th floor and look for the Ninja on the door). These details and more can be found at http://www.frontendparty.com
Look forward to seeing you there!
