As most readers of my blog know, I organizer both Silicon Valley Code Camp (going on our 9th year now with dates set for 10/11-12/2014 again at Foothill College in Los Altos) and Code Stars Summit which is happening for the first time this year in San Francisco. Code Stars Summit is a much smaller event (under 100 people) is a paid event with top quality workshop leaders doing all day training events.
Yesterday, we added the benefit that all attendees will get a 1 year subscription to Frontend Masters. See the announcement below for details.
Why are we offering this now? On my last email promoting Douglas Crockford's Fun with Functions workshop, Doug asked me include a preview of a 5 hour training video he did for FrontEnd Masters as a sample of what to expect at his workshop. Many hundreds of you watched that video preview getting the attention of Marc Grabanski, FrontEnd Masters president. Marc (a past attendee of SV Code Camp) called me and we came up with the plan to give all attendees of Code Stars Summit a free 1 year subscription to FrontEnd Masters.
Below are the three workshops in which we still have space. Signup now to reserve your space.
CSS3: What you need to know. Estelle Weyl - Thursday- Web development without image editing software, IDs or classes? What was impossible 5 years ago is almost simple to do with CSS3. Prototyping with CSS3 has made the development process fun again. Yes, there is new syntax to learn, and different browsers sometimes require slightly different markup, but the power is worth the pain. And, once you understand the syntax, there are tools so CSS3 isn't a memorization game. Improved development time, reduced maintenance costs, SEO, accessibility and site performance? What more could you ask for?
How about all of it, all in 1 day! In this full day workshop you will learn about the capabilities of CSS3, progressive design principles, time saving techniques, and debugging and development tools. Yes, we'll cover rounded corners, but this skills-based workshop will cover so much more, including selectors, fonts, media queries, performance, responsive features, background effects, gradients, animations, transitions and transformations.
Thanks again for your support and of course, feel free to email me with any questions.
