Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

What“Connecting Bytes, Pixels and Dollars: How Developers, Design”, w/ Mark Phillips

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Dec 9 will be “Connecting Bytes, Pixels and Dollars: How Developers, Design”, w/ Mark Phillips.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Software is implemented by developers, designed by designers and paid for by clients. Each group speaks a different language. Each group has their own specific goals. Communication is often a challenge. Even when everyone does get along, rarely does everyone get what they want. Developers don’t get to build what they want,designers can’t design the experience they want, and the client doesn’t get what they want. This talk discusses techniques you can use to facilitate workflow, guarantee less stressful interactions and ultimately allow each group to put their talents to use on creating successful results. There will be space alloted for brainstorming on solving audience members challenges in their work environment.

DURATION: Approx. 1 hour
Meeting will be recorded. URL will be posted after meeting at
