Web Developers Meetup - Topic: Design Principles for Coders

As a coder, have you ever wondered what makes a good web design? Have the techniques and language of graphic artists and designers been like a foreign language to you? Ever wonder what it takes to make a web design great?

Just as designers need to know a little about coding, every coder should know a little about design.

Learning to create effective, beautiful web layouts is not black magic. It is a learned skill, akin to learning a new programming language or framework.

Keith Engelhardt will cover some fundamental design components and principles that every coder should know.

Keith  is a Sr. User Interface Developer (Web Developer/Web Designer UI/UX Specialist) at Vana Solutions in Beavercreek, OH.

He has over a decade of Web Developer/Web Design experience, including heading the web development team for one of the top ten design firms in the country. He focuses his passion for problem solving and tenacious creativity on enhancing the User Interfaces (UX) and User Experience (UX) of Web Applications and Websites. As, co-chairmen of the Dayton Wed Developers group, he regularly shares his knowledge and expertise with the group.
