Responsive design isn’t a new thing anymore. Nor is it just a ‘nice feature’ for forward thinking sites and companies. Responsive Design has become the new standard as we shift toward the universal web. As designers and developers, we may find responsive design requiring a change to our standard practices or ways of thinking. We have also found that with an ever-increasing amount of devices for which we must account, testing our sites and apps in all of these different environments can be painfully time consuming.
This month’s discussion will focus on the benefits of utilizing Google Chrome’s Mobile Emulation along with Adobe Edge Connect to streamline the testing and debugging process across multiple devices. We will show real-time mobile debugging, easy device emulation, as well as any pitfalls that may be encountered during this process.
Daniel Yuschick, Lead Developer, DeusM
As a developer/designer hybrid, Daniel’s core strength is in front-end development incorporating Html, Css, Sass, jQuery, and responsive design. In his lead development role with DeusM he is the primary developer on all projects and responsible for creating and standardizing front-end best practices for both the development and design teams as he transitions the current platform to a custom framework.
At our new Tek Systems location we are meeting in a beautiful and well equipped meeting room with overhead projector and screen system. The seats are comfortable and there are about 40 of them. TekSystems has also offered to provide pizza and sodas. We graciously thank TekSystems
Want to speak? Just contact any organizer or assistant organizer - Pepper, Dieter, Michael, or Mitch!
Please consider moderating a meeting! It takes only a small amount of preparation and the back-and-forth discussion is much more lively than a Q&A session after a "powerpoint and bullets" lecture style presentation.
We often have Open Floor discussions on topics chosen by a volunteer moderator. Some tickler topics:
Building skills, or, what new software/services have you learned (or written!)
Tips and Techniques for effective design by newbies
Web SEO, marketing and evaluating results
Book or article reviews - read or written!
Focus Group style Web Site Tear Downs
Format of Meeting, and Time
Arriving by 7pm will get you in the door before it is locked. This is an office building. Please arrive before 7.
If you arrive late, you will need to call one of the organizers upstairs to come down and let you in.
We typically do a round-robin greeting after pizza and just before the action starts about 7:15pm. We will end the greeting period with announcements, and then give the floor to the presenter or moderator.
The meeting itself can be group discussion, lecture style, or moderated discussion and will likely change based on topic and speakers.
Consider the benefits of moderating, presenting lecture style, or giving a tutorial:

Increased Good Will
Speakers, THANK YOU for your participation.

About the Locations
Recent meetings have been held at TekSystems' offices at the corner of Edwards Mills and Trinity Road. Outside doors of the building lock at 7pm - we will try to have a posted paper with a cell number to call or text or have a person at the door - but arriving promptly will help avoid a wait.
Panera has WiFi access, deep pots of coffee, and plenty of room. Please be polite to the staff and mindful of other customers. We should vacate by 9pm so staff can go home! Note: Maps.Google.Com finally shows the correct location.
