Following the great success of the Go Beyond Pixels Conference, I thought it would be great to continue the momentum and set out a time every couple of months to bring the community together to discuss what's new and interesting in design and web/mobile development. Sign up for the email newsletter to be kept informed of dates, time, and location. The first Go Beyond Pixels Meetup is scheduled for Wednesday, July 11th with venue and details to follow.
The plan for the meetups is to gather between 20 - 50 participants at a local pub, coffee shop, etc. so that there will be no cost to attend (just your own drinks or food). Everyone is invited, and you can come to contribute or just to take it all in.
A meetup is an informal way to get together offline. Meetups occur all around the world for just about any topic! Go Beyond Pixels Meetups will focus on design, tech, web and mobile development.
HTML5 introduces many cutting-edge features that enable developers to create apps and websites with the functionality, speed, performance, and experience of desktop applications. But unlike desktop applications, apps built on the web platform can reach a much broader audience using a wider array of devices. HTML5 accelerates the pace of your innovation and enables you to seamlessly roll out your latest work to all your users simultaneously.
Design and User Experience has never been more important. Users demand so much more from the things they interact with daily, and to get their attention you have to deliver a personal and superior experience.
Mobile and App design for iOS, Android, and Blackberry is already the future and is responsible for creating nearly half a million jobs since 2007. The industry continues to grow at a tremendous pace with countless opportunities waiting around the corner.
My name is Levin. I recently organized the Go Beyond Pixels Conference in St. John's, NL, and now I'm organizing the Go Beyond Pixels Meetups. I'm passionate about design and web, and I think that these meetups will be a great way to get together and discuss what we love to do everyday while helping to grow our local design and development community.
