Dayton Web Developer Meetup Highlights:
- The open source map software Leafletjs, a WordPress plugin for it, and the associated CDN.
- A local Dayton company also developed the software emotitforpresident.com/ which uses the SDK for MIT backed emotion recognition software Affectiva, Apache Cassandra, and NoSQL to package together an app that reads your face and collects tons of data points while you watch political videos. Very cool.
- There was a presentation on Webpack, a modular bundler, that I found quite interesting.
- There was also a high level talk on design elements which recommended the book Responsive Web Design by EthanMarcotte.
I hope you don't find the above link-a-poloza off-putting. I wanted to share all the tidbits I picked up before I forgot them.
