August SCWDD update

Hi everyone,

Here’s our August meetup update for Southern California Web Designers and Developers.

Thanks so much to everyone who made it out for the Job Fair at Blankspaces Coworking on Wilshire! We had a lot of fun and heard some interesting speakers!

Upcoming Meetups:

Check out our upcoming UI Design Mini-Boot Camp event with Jan Cavan on August 30th which ought to be great. We’re also in talks with Media Temple on doing an event on UI Animation.

A third party added an event on the HTML5 framework, Sproutcore. This was originally supposed to be on location but they’ve changed it to be an online event. It looks to be interesting and I’m looking forward to checking it out.

Event nomination policy change:

With that said, I think I’m going to be disallowing the ability to automatically nominate and promote events to the group without first running it by organizers. I’m seeing a pattern of third party groups hijacking/promoting outside events with other meetups which may or may not be well organized or relevant. My goal for the group is to have well run, quality events for membership which bring the local community together.

I also like online events. However, the spirit of Meetup events is that they can build and strengthen real world interaction and relationships. Because of that, I’d like to discourage having more than occasional online presentations.

If you do have an idea or would like to present, please feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear it!

Sister Meetup Events:

There’s an outdoor film screening and a panel discussion on the evening of Saturday 8/18 on the topic of Design Thinking. Here's the film that’ll be showing. There will be a panel following the screening to discuss the questions raised in the film.
The early bird tickets are on sale now, so grab them before they go! http://designpicnicla1.eventbrite.com/

Topic Experts?:

I’m currently looking for presenters on e-book/digital publishing, usability or accessibility. If anyone would like to give a talk or knows of someone who’d be a good match, please get in touch. Thanks!

That’s all folks and have a great summer!
