We had another great turnout last Thursday! Thanks to everyone who came along to our fifth meetup – we hope you enjoyed the Creme Egg! If you couldn’t make it, don’t fret, we filmed the talks and will update the page once they’ve been edited.
The evening was hosted by Natasha and we had four lightning talks with a show and tell theme.
We’ve included a summary of the talks below and we’ll update the page with coverage (slides/videos) as it comes in.
Rapid Cross-device Development
Presented by Andrew McCombe
Over the years the web development cycle has involved saving in your editor, reloading the browser, switching to another browser, reload, repeat. This talk will introduce a workflow that rapidly improves cross-browser and cross-device web development, saving time, money and the F5 key.
Convergence Web-Based Gaming
Presented by Ollie Reardon
A proof-of-concept gaming platform using web-based technologies to demonstrate how a game can adapt to different devices such as desktop, tablet and mobile, that I am currently building for my final year project at University.
Icon design – First time for everything
Presented by Dave Redfern
New projects bring new challenges. It’s what keeps our jobs interesting. Recently I had the opportunity to design a set of bespoke icons. Embracing this new challenge I want to share my experience.
Cachet & Building for yourself
Presented by James Brooks
I started building Cachet as a tool for my own needs. Since then it’s grown into a product with a wide following, thousands of installs and excitement for Version 1.
In this talk I’ll be demoing Cachet, talking about its future and why you should build things for yourself.
We’ll be back!
We raffled off a number of prizes on the night, including some giant Easter eggs, a book and a bag of tea and coffee courtesy of Bean enCounter. Congratulations to our raffle winners!
We’ll be back in April for an evening of agile with Kevin Rutherford. Kevin will be demonstrating the real world benefits of using agile processes. Join our mailing list and we’ll keep you updated on all our upcoming events. We’ll see you in April!
