The Raleigh-Durham Web Design Group Monthly Meetup

  • May 13, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We had to change the content and the location of this meeting on very short notice.

TEKsystems is working on changes on their computers and network and we can't use their room this time.

Let's meet at our old location at Panera Bread instead, for a less formal discussion of CSS and design issues.


See you all at 7pm


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

- Mitch


Format of Meeting, and Time

Since many of us get to the meeting early, we make a half-hour available as a meet-eat-and-greet time prior to any presentations or shop talk. We start formally at 7:30pm, but arriving at 7pm will give you time to get settled in.

We typically do a round-robin greeting just before the action starts at 7:30pm. We will end the greeting period with announcements, and then give the floor to the presenter or moderator.


Consider the benefits of moderating, presenting lecture style, or giving a tutorial:

Enhanced Credibility

Visibility For Your Business

Increased Good Will

Speakers, THANK YOU for your participation.

We Thank Our Sponsors and Organizers

Agile Markup Corporation

Feliz Applications


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.


Check the menu on our Web site for Past Meetups you may have missed.

    Raj, it was nice to meet you as well. I would also recommend taking a look at SugarCRM as well as Salesforce. Salesforce is nice from a development/ customization perspective due to being built on a java/apex/oracle platform. So you can clearly define the user screens for each group- sales, support, management etc.
    Wish you all the best!!
