11/09/99 RMIUG Meeting - Tips and Tools for Web Site Development

The Tuesday November 9, 1999 meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will feature a panel discussion on "Tips and Tools for Web Site Development." Join us for our 48th RMIUG meeting, the last one of the century! Also, see our '2000 meeting schedule below.

Our first presenter is Alex Wilsdon (awilsdon@leopard.com), Internet Strategist at Leopard Communications. Alex will be covering the initial strategic planning and information architecture including: defining the project objective, alignment with other business initiatives, designing an information architecture, establishing the functional requirements and defining the scope within the established time and cost constraints.

Our next speaker will be Mark DeAntoni (markd@indra.com), Graphic Designer at Indra's Net. Mark will be speaking on graphic considerations in web site design and development, including browser compatibility issues, graphics applications, and HTML/JavaScript programming.

Our final speaker will be Bryan Buus (buus@xor.com), Director of Internet Technology Solutions at XOR Network Engineering. Bryan will be speaking on Unix-based utilities that are useful, as well as some of the things to look out for when planning for a web site that needs to scale over time.

As always, we will allow plenty of time for interactive Q&A, so bring plenty of questions.

The meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 9th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for refreshments and informal networking). The meeting will be held at The National Center for Atmospheric Research at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, which is located on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up the hill, right under the Flatirons. For door-to-door driving direction, go to MapQuest (http://www.mapquest.com/ ), click on Driving Directions, enter your starting address, NCAR's address, and voila! Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door, and ask the guard to point you to meeting, which is held in the main auditorium, right off the lobby. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we may pass the hat to help defray expenses.

Our meeting location seats about 120 people. That is usually enough room to accommodate all attendees, but it's impossible for us to predict how many people will show up for any given meeting. Seating is always on a first-come, first serve basis, and in the event of more attendees than seats, we won't be able to admit additional people into the auditorium after all seats are filled.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.
