ThursdayJun 18 2015Free workshop: How to give great presentations (a Devsigner sneak-peek)
On Thursday evening, Devsigner presenter Kristen Gallagher will be giving a special workshop for fellow Devsigner presenters -- and it's open to the public.
The workshop is free.
If you're new to speaking -- or just want to brush up on your skills -- please join us!
Talks aren't fun. Panels aren't fun. Conference talks usually suck for many reasons, but they mostly suck because no one is learning anything and everyone is just staring blankly at the talker. It doesn't have to be this way... it doesn't have to hurt. You’re about to give a talk - a talk that really should be awesome. Come hang out and get your hands dirty with making conference talks that are actually awesome. This talk won't hurt at all - all you have to do is teach, don't talk.
In person: Thursday, June 18, 6:00 PM at Phase2, 514 NW 11th Avenue, Suite 203, Portland, OR
Online: We'll be livestreaming the workshop as well. Join us through Google Hangouts at 6:00 PM
- get concrete tools to set up your presentations to be as awesome as possible
- learn how to be yourself while talking
- learn how to create talks that people remember

ThursdayFeb 19 2015Drupal Frontend Meetup - February 2015 - Using Gulp
This month Erik Bladwin will be presenting on Gulp! For those of you who don't know, Gulp is a task/build manager best used for automation. Praised by many as easier to use than Grunt with all of the same benefits. Gulp can be used to easily; minify and/or uglify your code, refresh your browser when files have changed, and so much more. If you enjoy automation, and you haven't heard about or used Gulp, this meet-up is for you!
