MaxCDN Hosting Meetup on Responsive Design
June 4, 2015 | Kyrsten Lew
Don’t be shy. Girl, Develop it!
This is the mentality that Girl Develop It, a nonprofit organization, believes all women who are interested in web development should embrace.
In the organization’s own words, Girl Develop It is a nonprofit organization that provides affordable programs for adult women interested in learning web and software development in a judgment-free environment.
This message resonated with us, especially our in-house web developer Heather Weaver. So much so that we decided to support it by hosting a course on responsive design in our own judgement-free environment: the MaxCDN headquarters.
About the Two-Day Course
The responsive design 101 course will take place over two days. The first class is on Tuesday, June 9th and the second class is on Thursday, June 11th. Each class is two hours and will start at 7 p.m.
Topics covered in the course include:
- Best practices in responsive web development
- Implementing responsive images + typography
- Utilizing grids and floats
- Media Queries in CSS
- Website speed, size and performance
- Responsive frameworks + plugins
To view pricing, prerequisites, and sign up for the course, visit the event page on Meetup. As of Thursday, June 4th, there are 5 spots remaining.
About Heather Weaver
One of the things Heather Weaver likes most about web development is the evolving nature of the industry. “I’d spend all of my time learning new things if I could,” she says, “so it’s great to have a job that allows me to feed that side of myself.”
Before becoming a full-time web developer at MaxCDN, Heather explored a few different fields.
After graduating from Miami University with a degree in theatrical design, she moved to Los Angeles where she did graphic design and motion graphics for a small studio. She also took on SEO and copywriting projects on the side.
When she’s not writing code, Heather can be found in her garden and hanging out with her friends and puppy named Wallace. She also enjoys playing the piano and going for long bike rides.
