    Excellent topic, excellent turnout, excellent food. The speakers all seemed knowledgeable about their topics and though they each had a short time to cover them they did a good job of outlining responsive design.

    Got pointed towards some cool things that I hadn't even known existed! Presentations were a little quick, but just the right amount of technical detail. This was my first meetup with this group, btw.

    What an incredible experience, for me as a non-designer, non-developer I was given a ton of insight into how to make the experience better for all sites I work with. Thank You!

    Great presentations, there were a few tools that could have been given better context for the less experienced developers (designers).

  • Ray B.

    I'll be sticking around for a bit after this meetup if anyone wants to ask questions about responsive design. I don't have the time or energy to put together a presentation on the subject right now, but I've been rocking responsively for a couple years now and I love sharing the knowledge I've accumulated along the way.

  • Janson

    Julia & I can present. Julia from a designer's perspective, and me from a builder's perspective.
