This event is free and open to the public.

Building websites from scratch can be complex; writing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript into a responsive (and bug-free?) website can be time-consuming. Using JavaScript libraries like jQuery and Bootstrap, a JavaScript/CSS based front-end framework, will turn you into a one person web designer.

Jeff Jirsa is a senior developer at Comcast, writing web applications for monitoring system health. He programs with one of the three P's (PHP, Perl, Python) in the LAMP stack, but is also familiar with compiler languages like C and C++.

As usual we will be having a "Meeting After the Meeting" for talk and drinks, and we are planning it to probably happen at the Rock Bottom restaurant in the Bolingbrook Promenade mall. The link goes to the restaurant's Bolingbrook website
