Open Design Cape Town ( runs from 12 to 23 August 2015 at City Hall. This year, the theme is Design is for Tomorrow.

We’ll be running a CTFEDs event (instead of our regular meetup) as part of the festival: a hands-on workshop for making your site even better. Bring along your laptop and a site or two that you’re working on (to the New Media Labs office in Observatory). We’ll also have two lightning talks: one on SVGs and one on jQuery vs regular JavaScript.

The workshop will run from 10am to 3pm, with a lunch break from 12pm to 1pm.
