Slice & Code - From PSD to Website

Jacob Thomason will demonstrate some of the basics of going from a photoshop design to a coded website.  This includes the slicing process within Photoshop, the layout of an HTML file and the css styling.  Additional emphasis will be placed on optimization and best use practices.

6:00 - Meet and greet, grab some grub and drinks
6:30 - 7:30 - Presentation

If you have a photoshop file you'd like to submit for the presentation, please contact Jacob.  He will be slicing and coding up one user submitted design during the presentation.

    Hey Transformers!I'm about to undertake a research project that will hopefully use Instagram photos and tags as part of the data. Are there any developers out there that have worked much with the Instagram API and/or would be willing to help my research partner and I gather some data? I would appreciate any help or guidance you could provide!Thanks!

    Wanted to add a note about It's a site for composing your own icon fonts from existing ones. Just pick and choose among the available sets and create your own. This can result in a very small font if you only need a small handful of icons, especially if you're pulling them in from multiple fonts. Also, Font Awesome (the font used by Twitter Bootstrap, which folks mentioned at the Meetup) is among the fonts available. You can even upload your own vector graphics. And it generates the CSS for you as well. Create your own font icons, then google "CSS3 font styles" for ways to style your icons. Enjoy!

    Hope everything went well after I left! I'm sure Jacob did a great job. Here's a link to the game I mentioned, Cafe Murder, live in the App Store (and free for limited time only!) right now:­

    I loved the impromptu nature of "I've never seen this PSD before in my life!"... so you get to watch the thought process unfold. Also, the interactive feedback from folks in the room was great, it wasn't just a unidirectional thing. Those meta and link tags were a group effort, man! Nice work!

    It's always interesting to see how other people set up their code, and Jacob is always extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter he presents. Can't wait for the next one!
