CSS3, HTML5, SASS, LESS, Knockout, Ember, Angular, D3, flat / responsive design…are you finding it tough to figure out what's what in the ever changing landscape of front-end development? Or perhaps just interested to see what cool stuff people are doing with all these new tools at their disposal?
Welcome to FrontEndParty, the first NOLA front-end developer / designer meetup group. On the last Thursday of each month, we host three presentations (between 5 to 15 minutes each) on the front-end world from developers and designers around New Orleans.
For our next meetup, on March 28th and sponsored in part by Skuba Design Studio, we'll have these talks lined up:
Co-founder / Developer @ Webdevrs & Archon
Beau will present on tips to simplifying UI component communication by using a pub/sub messaging strategy with Amplify.js.
CEO / Co-founder @ 3rd Floor Labs
Scott's talk will focus on self scaling UI in iOS, particularly around creating helper methods to scale components based on content size and rearranging views efficiently.
Lead Developer @ Skuba
Jay will go over custom map solutions like TileMill, CartoCSS and Leaflet.js, covering front-end styling, data import sources/techniques and a short demo to bring it all together.
Meetups start at around 7:00pm at The Dojo (http://www.dojo.la/dojola/home) in the Exchange Centre at 935 Gravier Street, Suite 1650 (go to the 16th floor and look for the Ninja on the door). These details and more can be found at http://www.frontendparty.com
Look forward to seeing you there!
