GDI SF Newsletter: iOS Workshop, Browser Testing, Conference Proposals, and more!

Hi all!

We had a lot of interest for our two workshops this week - salary negotiations and Google analytics (tonight). As with all of our workshops, we hope to offer them again in the future, so stay tuned for future dates.

Earlier this week, I announced an iOS workshop from App School on February 16th. After it came highly recommended by a GDI student, we worked with them to put on a workshop just for us. It costs a bit more than our GDI workshops, but costs much less than other iOS development workshops in the area. I will be there (as an eager student), and I hope to see some of you as well!

In web news, Microsoft has partnered with BrowserStack to offer three months of virtual browser testing. I highly recommend taking advantage of it, as it’s a great way to test across multiple browsers on desktop *and* mobile.

There’s a great article on NetMag on what happened in the web standards world in 2012 and what will be happening in 2013. I found that link from the HTML5 Weekly newsletter, which is a great set of links.

For a fun set of HTML5 demos, check out Form Follows Function.

On the conference front, a few conference CFPs are open now: RailsConf, CSSConf, and EuroPython. Remember that you don’t have to be an expert to submit!

If you’re interested in the upcoming web development courses that General Assembly is offering, make sure to drop by their information session on February 13th to find out more.

I’ve noticed a few students tweeting out links to their GDI exercises on Github. Keep that up! And, hey, if you ever want someone to review your code for best practices, let us know.

And now for our regularly scheduled links...
