We have three presentation on tap for this one:
Michael Fulk is a an interactive developer at Wall to Wall and also does freelance work as Future Designs. He'll be presenting "Bending the Pipes" - which will give us a crash course on making mashups, feeds and recombining web content with Yahoo Pipes and Dapper.
Next, Olivia Blonde is a web designer at the University of Pittsburgh and previous worked at the Carnegie Libraries where she was reponsible for the redesign of the Carnegie Library website. She'll present "Design Process in a Nutshell". Each designer — or design group — develops a method for solving problems, then evolves that method over time. While no one person or group may view a problem from the same perspective, general similarities often appear in their approach. Olivia's presentation will take us from requirements to concepts to design and to handoff.
Finally, Isaac Gierard, a new media developer at Elliance with be showing off a recent project of his, a "CSS Combiner". Isaac will give a brief introduction to a recently developed open source CSS preprocessor for combining multiple CSS files into on and it's benefits for website performance.
Also, we'll be giving away one free pass to the Flashpitt conference taking place the following Friday!
