Dear Members:

Our August meetup will be hosted by The Creative Company, downtown. I've updated the location info and provided an outline below.

Also note, the Madison PHP Meetup is back. The first meeting is August 19.

More info:­

Goal: To help attendees think about the value of design and why they should put it in the forefront, backing it up with excellent code.

Example: Posterous v. Tumbler
Method 1: Design Considerations
- Consistency throughout the site (limiting colors, text)
Reduces complexity of CSS
- Clear visual hierarchy
- Design with the goal in mind; entire site should serve that goal.

Method 2: Accessibility
- What is the REASON that this code was used, not what is the actual code?
- JavaScript Degradation
- Text replacement vs. images of text
- Don't rely on tricks. Think about basic functionality, then improve with effects.

Conclusion, Questions
