Be Responsive August Meetup

  • Aug 13, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Our third Be Responsive meetup has a selection of speakers and this month we will be looking at Accessibility and Testing as our key topics plus lightning talk.

 

Jordan Lewis (Front End Developer, Envato) - Multi-device and browser testing for Responsive Web Design

 

Adem Cifcioglu (Developer, Recreate Web) - Accessibility and the small screen - 5 Tips for creating more useable, accessible smaller screen websites


Like last month, we have capacity for about 50 people, so get down early to avoid disappointment and grab a comfy seat! Envato has allowed us to use a bigger room, so we have more space that'll fit everyone . We'll start the night with some pizzas and pre-talk mingling, and begin the presentations and discussions around 6:30.


As well as looking for 1 more speaker who are willing to do a talk or a lightning talk, we also still looking for food and drink sponsors for our August meetup. If you or your company are interested, or if you know anyone who might be interested, please let us know. You can contact us on [masked]

    Hey all, thanks to the great speakers and thanks to Envato for hosting us!

    We're actually looking for a freelance digital designer with responsive experience at the moment. Let us know if you're interested or if you know someone!

    Great venue, and I loved the format - plenty of time at the start to meet people, just enough time for speakers, and some discussion afterwards. A lot of web meetups don't leave time for discussion but this one nailed it. Great participatory crowd, too. Can't wait for the next one.

      Thanks for joining us last night Ben. Yes the discussion turn out to be a pretty good thing. Definitely will do again. I'll announce that we are accepting discussion questions. So if people have any, they can suggest it to us :)

    Hi everyone! I was sorry to miss last night's event... Between now and the September event, I'd love to hear from any Front End Devs looking for permanent work. We're always being asked by clients to find great Front End Developers. My email is [masked] if you want to get in touch.

    Looking forward to the September meetup.

    Thanks,

    Jen

    • Zendy W.

      Thanks for joining us last night :). Yes, we are trying to get more designer to talk, if you know anyone who might be available to give a talk, please let me know.

      August 14, 2013

  • Zendy W.

    It's a really good session, we shared our hurdles and solutions. We should do this again next month.

    I could probably manage a talk on something… Maybe the testing talk I did at Web Directions? http://www.slideshare.net/chrischinchilla/web-directions-code

      I will be overseas in September, was just responding to your call out for one more speaker above, if you don't need one anymore…

      August 13, 2013

    • Zendy W.

      Yes we were replying at the same time, a bit of a mixed up. The talk that you are proposing is similar to Jordan's talk tonight. Thanks for offering, but I don't think it's suitable for tonight. If you available for future date that'd be great..

    Strange, my comment vanished. Just saying, I'd be happy to do a last minute talk, was thinking my Web Directions one might work well - http://www.slideshare.net/chrischinchilla/web-directions-code

      Ahh, may be a little similar to Jordan's talk perhaps? Mine is about remote testing, using chrome / safari tools etc… to test websites on mobile devices.

  • Andrea B.

    Sorry, but I will have to be an apology now.

    August 13, 2013

    • Zendy W.

      Hi Andrea, no worries. Hopefully you can join us next month.

    Hey just curious about the RSVP list.
    It says that Envato has a capacity of about 50 but 84 people have RSVP'd as attending. Is there no Waitlist set up?

    August 8, 2013

    • Zendy W.

      Hi Josh, Envato has upgraded us to a much bigger room. So don't worry about that :)

      Thanks Natasha. I did end up getting a spot finally as someone else cancelled! But thanks for adding the 'Wait list' feature. See you then!
