Refresh Recap: Mobile Web, Big Crowd

Matt Henry, a Senior Front-End Developer here at Viget, drew a crowd of 50 people yesterday at the 31st meeting of Refresh the Triangle. His talk, "The Agony and Ecstasy of the Mobile Web," struck a nice balance of being general and broad, but still technically detailed. Matt covered the basics of mobile development strategy and supporting a wide range of mobile devices; he also answered questions about mobile web apps vs. native apps, mobile Javascript, and how to test on mobile devices.  His clever commentary and witty slides went a long way to keep the packed room chuckling all the way to the end of the presentation (which concluded with "xoxo, matt") and into a peppy Q & A session. Everyone seemed to get a lot out of the talk. We owe thanks to the Durham Chamber of Commerce for hosting us last night and providing food and drinks. Thanks!

After three years of helping to organize Refresh the Triangle, it is exciting that every month we still meet new people who've come out to a meeting for the first time. It's also great to see a core group of regulars each month. We've got a stellar web community is in this area and I love how Refresh gives us a reason to get together. 

After the meeting, at the bar, I heard a few people say, "See you next month!" as they headed home. We've got a good thing going on here -- I hope you'll join us soon.

(Next meeting: Thurs. December 2, 6:30PM at City Beverage -- social only; no speaker)
