Last night meeting

From: Osamu W.
Sent on: Wednesday, February 29, 2012 11:45 PM

Hi everyone,

I wanted to thank everyone who came to the meeting last night.   I also apologize the meeting went longer than I planned, and kept you late.  On the other hand, there was good networking during the break period, also interesting discussions throughout the presentation, as well as the design critique.  So I wanted to encourage the interactions among the members.

Of course, our special thanks goes to Jackson for his presentation on SEO.  Not only he guided us through the importance of SEO and how we can implement it, but also he handled very well answering to a number of questions raised during his presentation.  His contribution to our group was greatly appreciated.  

I would like to jot down some of the links we addressed during the meeting.


a) News and Reviews:

1. COLOURlovers: this is a social service, blog and international creative community that focuses on colour inspiration and colour trends.  Selecting the right scheme of colours is an important element for web design. There are a number of colour palettes that will complement your design.


2. Blog sites related to SEO:


3. Web traffic analytic tool site:


4. Recommended web hosting company:



c) Presentation: 

5 Things Web Developers Need to Know About SEO by Jackson Lo

Once his presentation is on his Slideshare account, I will send you a link to it. 


d) Peer Review of Design/Interface Submissions:

We reviewed the following site yesterday.

  • Landscaping Ottawa:
  • gnowit: we reviewed a web application that was developed by an Ottawa company.  The application is to undertake Realtime Media Monitoring and Analytics.  

e) other:

Someone was interested in the wireframe development tool I was demoing.  This application works on both Mac and PC:


That's all for now, thanks once again for an excellent Meetup.  

Lastly, if you have a moment, I'd appreciate a review of the Group on the Meetup site:

If we can fill in positive reviews we'll be able to continue to attract more web professionals to further strengthen and diversity the group. 

I look forward to the next meetup.
