December NYC Web Design Meetup

  • Dec 19, 2011 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

PRESENTATION: WORK SMART

A web designer's tool kit constantly evolves to facilitate efficiency, collaboration and improve the overall quality of work. Monday's Meetup will kick off a 'Work Smart' series where we explore how to leverage the best available tools for designers to save time, money and frustration.

 

Version Control

Kelly Sutton, will explore the origins of version control and explain how designers can use a variety of new tools to organize, store and share their work. If you do not use a version control system already, you will after this talk. Kelly is a software developer and a founder of LayerVault, simple version control software software specifically for designers. He has recently worked at Gilt Groupe and blip.tv as a front-end engineer.

 

Photoshop Workshop: Advanced Techniques for UI Design

Allan Grinshtein will follow with the first of a how-to series that many Meetup members have requested. He will cover a variety of Photoshop techniques that will help you create and manage sophisticated useful interface elements quickly and easily. Allan is currently the senior product designer at Jetsetter and a LayerVault founder.

 

Professional Networking!

We'll split our time between the presentations and a period of open networking. Refreshments will be served, so please join us (and bring a friend to help our group grow!).

    I'm really glad to be part of the NYC web design meet up group. The Dec meetup was excellent! I felt that both guest speakers were very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about working efficiently for web based work... As a designer, I came away with a lot more knowledge and web learning tools!

    I thought the git presentation was great but the advanced photoshop techniques was way too quick. Even watching it on video will have to be done in slo mo.

    A nice intro to SVN and basic interface creation in Photoshop but I'm already knowledgable in both these areas. Still good for less experienced members.

    Very interesting presentation about version control for Designers. Maybe a bit too fast.

    Daniel, it's correct. It's right between Broadway and Lafeyette on the south side of 9th. The address is the actual main entrance of the overall building itself on Broadway.

    Is there a schedule for tonight? I am wondering what time "Advanced Techniques for UI Design" might be starting as I may have to leave early.

    Thanks.

    We plan to post a video after the event. Good version control practices and UI design principals are beneficial to everyone -- I'm sure there are plenty of designers out there that wished they knew about version control when they were first starting out...

    Would this meetup be good for a novice? I am not familiar with versions or version control systems?
    Thanks
