Many thanks to Brad Parbs for starting off our January with a stellar presentation on his favorite design and development tools. I'm giving 1Password a whirl and look forward to trying Skitch. Thank you to Elliot Post for demonstrating his PHP application as well.

Is it possible to get enough on responsive design these days? By popular demand, we'll reprise this topic as often as you'd like! Join us February 12 when Clarissa Peterson presents her take on how to build a responsive website, or make your existing site responsive, by using CSS to create a fluid grid, make your images flexible, and add media queries that allow the site to respond to the device it's being viewed on. Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is recommended.

Clarissa Peterson is a freelance web/UX designer & developer. Before setting off on her own, she spent 10 years managing websites at various nonprofits in Washington, DC. Clarissa is currently writing a book on responsive design for O’Reilly, scheduled to be published in mid-2013. You can find her online at and @clarissa.

If you come hungry, enjoy the sandwiches and drinks at BooCoo on a "donations accepted" basis!

Stay warm in January and see you in February.

    Very informative presentation by a very knowledgable presenter with excellent speaking skills. Its hard speaking to an audience who's skill level spans from beginner (myself) to advanced, but Clarissa managed that very well.

    What a great presentation, and it was fantastic meeting some new people. Thanks for stopping by, Clarissa. On a side note, ComEd must have heard us laughing. Their mobile site now comes with Outage Updates :).

    Clarissa's talk was accessible and easily spanned the spectrum of experience in the room from seasoned developer to novice. Thank you for a terrific talk! And for being a great advocate of accessible information!

    Great to hear from such an experienced speaker on such a hot topic. It was good to hear about the code and the process to make responsive design happen. Good luck with the book Clarissa.

    So how do I know if/when I am attending? Do I get taken off the waiting list and moved to attending and will it tell me?

    I'd appreciate making contact with a source for learning Adobe Dreamweaver CS6. I have the "Quick-Start" guide manual and am learning it the "hard way". So an enlightenment connection would be a great help.

      Believe it or not, you're probably doing yourself the best favor by doing it the "hard way." But if you'd like good classes, check out http://www.ascendtrai...­ Talk to Ron Bailey who is a member of this group.
