Oxford Geek Night: 6th February

From Design to Deployment
Creating a site isn’t always a straight process of sketches to static photoshop comps to coding HTML & CSS. Looking at the workflow and nitty gritty of various designers reveals a variety of techniques for getting a design deployed on the web. This session will look at those practices: creating personal frameworks, planning markup for semantics, accessibility and SEO, browsing testing, bughunting and many more.

I also seem to have been volunteered for a live bout of layer tennis! Elliot Jay Stocks and I are pitted against Jina Bolton and Hannah Donovan from last.fm. As Leigh said “Do they know how slow you are?”. Obviously not!

    Just tried the Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs. Really good - nicer than the meat one, and the thought of Piers Morgan frothing at the mouth makes it even tastier
