An Ode to the One Page Web Site

As suggested by Kyle Adams:

The best piece of advice I ever received as a web developer: "Web sites are like puppies; everyone wants one but nobody wants to feed and water them after three weeks." One page web sites are under-appreciated low-maintenance options, especially for small businesses and organizations. It's time to show them some love and talk about the unique challenges and constraints of creating a one page site.

The Meeting Agenda

Socializing and Networking

5:45PM - 6:15PM

Drop in before the presentations to pick brains and rub elbows with other members. We'll also have the food set up so you can grab a bite before the main event begins. Please consider donating a few dollars to help cover the cost of food.


Intro
6:15PM ~ 6:20PM

Welcome, sponsor recognition, interesting upcoming events, miscellaneous babbling.


The Main Event
6:15PM ~ 7:45PM

Adam DeLong - "Do More With Less: The Value of a One-page Website."

Adam will talk about how a one-page website can impact your customers and your development business.

Kyle Adams - "More Power, Scotty!"

Kyle will cover various techniques for cramming functionality into a deceptively simple one page site. We'll look at using third party services, microformats, javascript libraries, and design techniques for taking care of the visitors while still keeping maintenance as simple as possible.

Ben Rousch - "Responsive Design: One Page for Every Screen"

Ben will introduce you to the Semantic Grid System and walk you through making your one page website look good on any size screen.

    I came away with the realization that I need to overhaul some of my one page sites to focus more succinctly on a call to action. I'm also looking forward to trying out semantic.gs on my next project. A big thanks to both of my co-presenters for making this topic a successful meetup.

    I liked Adam's explanation of leading site visitors through a sales funnel. Ben's tour of responsive.gs was also helpful. I much prefer Subway to pizza, so please keep that going!

    I wrote a blog post with links to my slides and notes, a copy of the Dr. I website as used in my presentation, and a link to the viewport article I mentioned. You can find it at http://clusterbleep.net/blog/2012/04/24/my-responsive-design-presentation-at-the-april-2012-grwebdev/
