August 12 ZURB Soapbox with Tina Chen of Slack Part of what has caused the tech world, and us here at ZURB, to fall in love with Slack is its deceptively simple design. While most parts of the app are pretty straightforward, it is rich with subtle animations, visual cues, textures and more. After two decades of product design work, we realize and appreciate just how much thought and iteration goes into these details. They’ve enjoyed meteoric growth and have a lofty vision for how communication within organizations will continue to evolve into the future. On August 12th, 2016 at 12:00 PM (PST), we’ll sit down with Tina, Design Lead at Slack, to talk about how user feedback affects Slack’s design, how to build platforms, what their design team does to foster collaboration, and where they see design heading. Tina Chen Design Lead, Slack ZURB 100 W Rincon Ave. Campbell, CA 95008
August 15-16 The Email Design Conference - Boston Free yourself from a sea of nested <tables>’s, <tr>’s, and <td>’s, and into modern web development practices. We’ll show you how to circumvent the treacherous table-based email layout with the power of the sparkling clean templating language of the open source Foundation for Emails 2 — taking your code from 160 lines of deeply nested, ugly code to 40 clean and simple ones.

August 18 Foundation Meetup Doing less with more is the name of the game. No one want’s to waste time doing mundane tasks like copying and pasting, dragging files, and figuring out complex workflows. That’s why we have modern build tools for web development. That’s where the ZURB Stack comes in. Use the same template that ZURB uses on all our client projects. This starter template is a souped up stack complete with 'Handlebars' templating, Browsersync, UglifyJS, UnCSS, image compression and Sass. To kick off the night, Rafi will talk about all the sweet awesomeness contained in the ZURB Stack to boost your productivity. After that, Kevin will show you how to extend upon the ZURB Stack and truly make it your own. With just these two talks, you’ll be heads and shoulders above the competition. Go you! Join us for pizza, beer, and let’s chat Foundation on Thursday, August 18th! We’ll be hanging out and answering questions before and after the talks, so feel free to bring your laptop and invite your friends. See you on Thursday! Rafi, Kevin Foundation Team, ZURB ZURB 100 W Rincon Ave. Campbell, CA 95008
