The State of Front End Development 2014
Exactly 3 years ago in the very first Meetup for this group we looked at the state of Front End Development 2011, this month Pascal Rettig will take a look at where the front-end of the Web is today. We'll cover the state of Front End Development jobs in Boston as well as what cool technologies are making an appearance in your browser (and which ones you can actually use!) We'll look over the current state of core technologies like CSS3, SVG, WebGL, Web Audio, Media Capture and WebRTC. We'll discuss what it takes to get started in the industry and what companies are looking for in job candidates.
Pascal Rettig has been developing web applications professionally for 18 years and is currently chief software architect at Alignable.com. He is an author for Wiley and develops games in HTML5 on the side.
Lightning Talks - 3 slots available
If you have a short (5 minute max) talk on an open-source or free-to-use front-end technology - email the organizers. We should have time for 6 short talks.
