CodeMonkeys Meeting – HTML/CSS Challenge

by on Oct.04, 2012, under Events, Meetings, Workshops

Tonight is #CodeMonkeys at 7pm at the space.

The plan for tonight is to build on what we’ve done at the previous meetings with HTML/CSS/JavaScript and take it to another step. There will be 3 difficulty challenges and sample code will be provided.

What to bring: VM running some LAMP configuration. If you have your VM from our Virtualmin install, that will work fine. If you don’t have a VM to run on, I’ll have one running you can use.
Tonight’s Topic: HTML/CSS Challenge + Special surprise challenge

CodeMonkeys Meeting – Practical HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

by on Sep.20, 2012, under Events, Meetings, Workshops

Tonight’s topic is Practical HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

If you are brand new to HTML/CSS and have NOT worked through the Code Academy Web Fundamentals track, please at least get through the first couple of sections so you won’t be completely lost. You don’t have to finish the entire track, and don’t let a lack of knowledge prevent you from showing up tonight.

When you arrive for the meeting tonight there will be an assignment ready for you. You’ll have until 8:30 PM to complete the assignment and then we’ll discuss the results among the group. You’ll be able to work solo or as a team. I’ll help you through anything you get stuck on but this will mostly be your project.

Since we had a low turnout for GitHub at the last meeting, if anyone would like to go over or work through the GitHub tutorial I can help with that as well.

MidsouthMakers Hosting Memphis PHP August 23rd

by on Aug.20, 2012, under Events, Meetings, Presentations

Just heard for Jeremy, the leader of the Memphis PHP User Group. We’ll be hosting their monthly meeting this Thursday. Their meeting topic this month is “Building Magento Extensions with Brian Wentzloff” Id love to see some people from the #CodeMonkeys come check this out. We’ll definitely be doing some PHP in the near future. Magento is a very powerful E Commerce platform that quite a few companies are using, so the presentation should be very informative.
