Making a Difference with HTTP

This month, we've invited two excellent speakers to educate us on accessibility and HTTP. Andrew Jaswa (twitter, github, website) will discuss improving accessibility on the web. With over 10 million Americans with disabilities, he'll talk about how you can make a difference in their lives by building accessible websites. Fred Jean (twitter, github, website) will dive into HTTP, discussing why HTTP is an omnipresent, critical and misunderstood protocol. He'll cover its history and current state, the anatomy of requests and responses, and some great tools for debugging. Status Cats will be had.

Delicious food and craft beers, as usual.

Schedule:

6:00 - Doors open 
6:30 - Making a Difference in Someone's Life - Andrew Jaswa
7:00 - Discussion and coding
7:30 - Parlez-Vous HTTP? - Fred Jean
9:00 - Doors close

The best place to park is at the Cherry Creek Mall on the opposite side of 1st Ave. There's also street parking all around Cherry Creek.

Enter the building along Fillmore St and take the elevator to the 4th floor.

    Hey Stackers! Wanted to make you all aware of an upcoming event called Go Code Colorado, put on by the Colorado Secretary of State in March...

    Go Code Colorado is an apps challenge designed to make public data more accessible and user-friendly. Teams of developers and entrepreneurs across the state will compete to solve business problems and grow our economy, by building apps that will help Colorado companies thrive. The Challenge starts in five locations across the state-- Boulder, Colorado Springs, Durango, Ft. Collins and Grand Junction -- and continues with a Mentor Checkin and a Finalist Competition in Denver. A stipend will cover all finalists’ travel expenses to Denver for the Mentor Checkin and Finalist Competition. The three finalist apps judged to be the best will take home $25,000, $15,000 or $10,000 in incentives on May 9th. To sign-up and get involved go to: gocode.colorado.gov

    I'll be at the event too, so feel free to come find me if you have any questions!
