Go Beyond Pixels Meetups

Industry Leading Speakers

Jeffrey Zeldman
Jeffrey Zeldman
Keynote Speaker

Dubbed KING of Web Standards by Business Week. One of the first web designers, Zeldman has had a pronounced impact on the medium and the profession. In 1995, the former art director and copywriter launched one of the first personal sites and began publishing widely-read tutorials on methods and principles of web design.

In 1998 he co-founded The Web Standards Project, a grassroots coalition that persuaded Microsoft and Netscape to support the same technologies in their browsers. That same year, he began publishing A List Apart “for people who make websites.” It has become one of the most respected and influential magazines in the field.

Microsoft Hackathon

Thanks to those of you who participated in the first Hackathon for Go Beyond Pixels! Here is the deal: you had 2.5 hours to design & create a web site or app that used the greatness of HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript to build something cool, fun or fantastic based on a theme: Curation. We saw some excellent concepts and had a fun time creating! Thanks to Thomas and Frédéric for leading the Hackathon and JAC for hosting and providing the snacks!
