**Our venue changed for this month's meeting; please make note.***

Our August Meeting topic will cover an aspect of our industry that can become too often separated from design, development, SEO, usability, et. al concerns: business - specifically ecommerce.

Cool, I would like to go over some e-commerce solutions. I have never implemented a store or shopping cart and would like to know how to do that or at least enough information to where I can get all the pieces needed.



So I had been asked to share some e-commerce usability experiences at Refresh Austin's August meeting. Of course I have acceped the opportunity and I actually have been preparing for the presentation.
These are some topics that I am going to discuss at the meeting. Also we will be building a simple ecommerce online store with Refreshers.

1. What does it mean to be intuitive?
2. Home page
3. Category page
4. Product detail page
5. Shopping Cart page.
6. BuySauceOnline.com

I really dont know how much of valuable information I can present, but hopefully everyone will walk away refreshed.


I'd just like to make sure the Refreshers know about this upcoming Ruby+Rails Charity Workshop which is happening on the evening of September 6th here in Austin. Perhaps someone can mention it at your next meeting. Thanks!
