Cape Town Monthly: CSS Grid & Azure DevOps Reloaded
Agenda · Session 1 - CSS grid · Session 2 - Azure DevOps Reloaded ======================================================================= Session 1 Title: CSS grid Since the web's beginnings, front-end developers have used all manner of techniques to control the layout of web pages. From tables to floats, positioning, and display properties, these techniques have all had one thing in common: they are by and large hacks. As a result design on the web has been difficult because of a lack of real tools for creating layouts. With the advent of Flexbox and latterly CSS Grid, we are finally getting tools to do design on the web. This talk will introduce CSS grid, a true layout system designed for web pages and applications. Facilitator: Justin Slack Justin Slack is head of design, user experience, and front-end development at NML (https://nml.co.za), a financial services software development company. He is fluent in HTML and CSS, and slightly obsessive about typography, web standards, and user experience. ======================================================================= Session 2 Title: Azure DevOps Reloaded Facilitator: Niel Zeeman Description: It’s clear DevOps has become increasingly critical to a team’s success. Azure DevOps captures over 15 years of investment and learnings in providing tools to support software development teams. Over[masked] internal Microsoft users and thousands of customers, in teams both small and large, use these services to ship products. This session will provide an overview of what has become the most complete cloud DevOps solution on offer. This overview will provide insight on how to leverage these best of breed tools to support your processes and enable value delivery faster while increasing the quality. BIO: Niel is a technologist at heart with experience in a diverse range of technologies and platforms. He works hand in hand with companies to execute their DevOps strategy together and automate for the future, one team at a time. He provides training and consulting focussed on DevOps and good ALM practices leveraging the Microsoft tool stack. When not playing with the latest tech, Niel likes to share his experience and knowledge through presentations and speaking engagements.

What we're about

We love all things developer.

We are a technology & vendor-neutral group (so we do not favour anyone or anything) which lets us share and learn on WIDE variety of topics from software development methodologies to patterns, best practices, various language paradigms and xkcd humour etc.

It's great to meet local developers and see what they are doing! From beginner to expert, all are welcome.

We meet monthly to learn about things related to software development. Our regular meetings happen in Joburg, Pretoria and Cape Town every month!

We also run ad hoc special events.
