Front-End Code Review

Front-End Code Review

Saturday, November 18th   |  11a – 1p   |  Free

Maybe this is you: You know some HTML and CSS. You’ve built a basic page or two, or maybe a couple small sites. But you haven’t had an experienced front-end dev available to validate your approach or help you improve it.

This Learn Teach Code LA meetup aims to help fill that gap. As a group, we’ll go through HTML and CSS samples submitted in advance by attendees. A professional developer will lead a discussion about the code, pointing out ways to:

• improve your HTML semantics;
• simplify your HTML and CSS;
• approach solutions in other ways;
• follow industry best practices, and more.


11:00am – Arrive and get settled
11:10am – Intro + code review discussion part 1
12:00pm – Quick break, stretch your legs
12:10pm – Code review discussion part 2
12:50pm – Feedback, open questions
1:00pm – Wrap-up

Bruce Hyslop will lead the code review. He is a an experienced developer and teacher, and is the lead author of HTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide, Eighth Edition, among other books.

As a 1st workshop, we will use openFrameworks to create a rotating cube in a virtual (3D) space. We will look at its basic framework. We will talk about why you want to use it, what you want to use it for, the infinite possibilities it holds, what inspires you about Creative Coding…
