Web Design Tips and Tricks

  • Nov 6, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I used to try to alternate between code and design topics, but lately it's been all code all the time.

So after the MongoDB meetup, several of us talked about planning a design-oriented, client-side-only meetup.  Html and CSS, of course, plus some DOM-oriented javaScript.

We talked about two or three short presentations. More deets and volunteers to follow...

    Good time. Richard had to call in sick, so we focussed on interactive tables and less / css.

    Khalid and Kevin and Imre offered experience with jqGrid in Yii, where it's much easier to deal with than it is on it's own.

    And everyone was enthusiastic about Kevin's less / css pre-processor intro - more on that later.

    Fun meeting, great energy, cool discussions. Thank you Eric and Kevin for the engaging presentations! And of course thank you to Justin for the hospitality and pizza :) Looking forward to the next one!

    First time with this group. Really enjoyed the energy and engagement of the group, great meeting and great folks. Excellent job by Eric and Kevin on the presentations, thank you!

    Hi Eric - brand new to the group. Would really like to attend but I'm a "last minute" decision will know tomorrow afternoon if I can make it. Can I bring anything? Looking forward to your presentation, I evaluated jqGrid a while back (ended up using Flexigrid for my particular requirement.)

    November 5, 2012

    • Eric N.

      Hope you can make it. Just bring your experience! I've evaluated jqGrid and dataTables but not Flexigrid.

    Semi-final deets on who's presenting what:

    Me - interactive tables with jqGrid and/or dataTables;

    Richard - platform independence;

    Kevin - less / css pre-processors.

    Three intrepid volunteers so far: me, Richard Nader and Kevin Sakhuja. We can probably fit in another presenter if anyone else is inspired to share.

    I could spend a few minutes on platform independence. I've been experimenting with a concept for a single interface that plays well on desktop, tablets and phones.

    • Eric N.

      Sounds good. You're on! This is an issue for every project I've done lately.

    I can talk about:
    1) New HTML, CSS techniques
    2) look at CSS , JS frameworks (CSS3)
    3) Cross browser stuff, Media Queries for responsive design
    4) Touch on some HTML 5 - location, storage, canvas, placeholders, forms, etc

    I have written some of my own JS libraries, talk about Js design patterns - whatever level of knowledge is demanded by the group.

    what say you?

      I can do 1 or 2 presentations on different front end stuff, just let me know

      You're on! 15-20 minutes on whatever you're interested in that day.

    I had my fun with jqGrid, testing it in a demo I can walk thru and using it in a real application. Now I'm testing DataTables as an alternative for another project. I should be ready to demonstrate and compare them for this meetup.

    October 26, 2012

    • David F.

      I really like DataTables. It is extremely easy to set up and use.

      October 26, 2012

    • Eric N.

      I agree. They each have their advantages, but DataTables definitely has a shorter learning curve.

    Yo Orlando WordCamp 2012 is Dec 1

  • Eric N.

    I'll demo jqGrid for dynamic tables. I'm still learning to use it now, but at last night's meetup Khalid confirmed my impression that it's going to do everything I need. (So he can field the hard questions.)

    So we need a couple more volunteers.
