    For Pete and Christina, who listened to me try to remember the code-learning website, it was Treehouse, http://teemtreehouse.com.
    I'd love anyone's opinion of this site. And I will check out Pete's suggestion, the easier-to-remember (and free!) codeacademy.com.

      That code academy website is cool! I'm not even a coder and I feel like it could teach me and I'd feel comfy learning.

      It is pretty cool. Coreen - the kids at STEM also use it!

    Nice meeting everyone last night, and thanks so much for having me. @Tom and @Marguerite I wipe up a quick blog post on mobile navigation functionality with same detailed explanation of how it works: http://peteschuster.com/2012/11/mobile-navigation-tutorial-part-1/

      Thanks for coming (so far) out, Pete! Your presentation was very informative. I can't wait to go back through all of them and spend more time letting the info sink in.

    Good but the 5 min presentations should be 5 mins longer

    Very informative session that reviewed the events of WordCamp Philly 2012, SEO by Yoast plugin and an informative presentation on CSS. Great presentations by Christina, Liam and Pete.
