Hey everyone!

It's been a few weeks since my last email o' links, so here's a nice long one for you. We still have plenty of space in next week's CSS evening workshop (http://www.meetup.com/Girl-Develop-It-San-Francisco/events/84138362/) so check it out if you want to up your CSS chops.

Oh, and thanks to our member Tayo, we now have a GDI San Francisco logo. You can check it out in the Meetup group, and hopefully we’ll have sweet stickers with it at our next event.

And now, for the links!
