Harbour Front Web Days - Design for People
We've been practicing product design since 1998, long before people even realized they were building digital products and not just websites. Yet most companies are still struggling with the concept of product design in a digital world. But they don't have to. In this session you will learn how you can elevate your game and design online products that everyone will want to use.May 27, 6:30PM-9PM @ The Hive
Harbour Front Web Days - Building for the Responsive Web
We'll give a talk about why frameworks are important to responsive design while exploring how they built Foundation and what the future holds for frameworks. You'll also have the chance to win a Foundation Yeti t-shirt! A roundtable discussion will follow, where designers, marketers and their clients can ask any questions they might have about responsive design. There'll also be a mixer with drinks and food, courtesy of MailChimp.May 28, 6:30PM-9PM @ The Hive

New York City, May 5 — 8
Rockin' the East Coast
The NY team didn't sit still once while on the East Coast. We met with the folks at Lightmatter and the Thrillist. We got to see first hand how the New York Times prototypes with Foundation. Our friends at Barrel hosted us for our first East Coast Foundation meetup while General Assembly featured us as one of the speakers at their meetup.
We also hopped the train to Philly to meet with Happy Cog. They're really working on some awesome stuff and we got a sneak peek. We then got on another train to Albany to talk about why UX tools and methods aren't a great fit for Product Design. The crowd was super engaged and had lots of good questions.
Melbourne, May 5 — 8
We sent Jessica and Jordan down under! After hanging out with 99designs, they did an ideation workshop teaching a crowded room how to sketch lo-fi wireframes. We had our first Australian Foundation meetup at the awesome Inspire 9 offices. And 99designs loaned us their amazing space for our Product Design meetup.
While we were there, we jetted to Sydney to have lunch with our friends at Campaign Monitor. In between, we visited Two-Bulls, had lunch with a few Aussie designers and found out how delicious the coffee is in Australia. Although, we can't say we're fans of Vegimite!
Toronto, May 12 — 15
Six ways to learn and have fun
