Day by day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work with your site grows. Responsive design is not just another technique—it is the beginning of the maturing of a medium and a fundamental shift in the way we think about the web for the decade to come. Travis Skweres, an HTML5LA member will be sharing his expertise with you and walk you thru building a responsive site.
BaM, Bradley and Montgomery the creators of “Bored2Death” will be showcasing their new HTML5 browser game that was featured @SXSW. Engineers will share an inside look at the development of the game. more info is coming .....
Yahoo! Media delivers segment leading experiences to over half a billion people worldwide. We are number one in News, Sports, Finance and several Entertainment sites as well. Delivering entertaining and informative relevant content to so many people quickly and beautifully at scale is a huge challenge. We use everything from big data (Hadoop and other grid/cloud technologies) to cutting edge HTML5/CSS/JS experiences at a level of complexity few companies do. If you eat, sleep and breathe current and next-gen web technologies, if you play around with them in your own time and learn new technologies like node.JS or MongoDB because you can't help yourself, then we need you to come help us build the next generation of Yahoo! sites.
A huge Thank You to Yahoo Inc! Our host for the evening. They have graciously provided the venue, food and beverage of you.
