Welcome all to #FrontEndParty #6! Apologies for the slightly delayed announcement, but the massively fun and wildly successful Barcamp 6 / Bearcamp 1 held earlier this month threw off our regular schedule. But we are back again, with three new #FrontEndParty talks to close out the month.
Also, this month's title comes courtesy of Ben Lavender, aka @bhuga, who supposedly claims that "he'd like to go to #FrontEndParty but can never remember when it is." So feel free to aggressively remind Ben Lavender in person or on social media that #FrontEndParty is this Thursday, so he doesn't forget. If he cuts off all communication with you, you're a winner!!! Double point multipliers if he has no idea who you are!!
For those who have not attended before, #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 July 25th (this Thursday) and sponsored in part by The Dojo, we'll have these talks lined up:
Rob is going to dive deep into AngularJS and show us some advanced and practical techniques when using AngularJS in real-world applications.
Creative Director and Co-Founder @ Epilogue
Ron will talk about his experience with digital publishing versus app development on the iOS platform, producing Hotel Whiskey Tango and Love Letters from New Orleans.
Interactive Developer / Designer @ Achord Interactive
Steven is presenting on everything CodeKit, an awesome app to help speed up front-end development through automation.
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!
