Jenn Downs is Still Standing Up | Ladies in Tech

This week we welcome freelance UX consultant, Jenn Downs to the show. Jenn shares what she’s learned since her first talk and how she got started speaking. (She even wrote an article about it, too.) She tells us how important it is to watch yourself on video even if it sounds like the hardest thing ever, and how she got over her fear of public speaking to get up on stage. About Jenn For the past 6 years, Jenn Downs swung her way through the jungle at MailChimp from support to tech writing to UX Design Research. But in January of 2014 she was bitten by the entrepreneurship bug and left MailChimp to start a family business. She is now the Business/Tech Manager for Carpenter Koby Downs in Atlanta. Never one to only do one thing at a time, Jenn is also a freelance UX and email marketing consultant and a mentor for Code for America. Outside of being web nerd, Jenn is also a songwriter and plays bass and guitar in a few bands in Atlanta. http://ladiesintech.com/podcast-jenn-downs/

098: With Lyza Danger Gardner - ShopTalk

This week we were joined by Lyza Danger Gardner. We talked about (roughly in order): News’n’Links’n’Drama: 12:33 Web Standards Killed The HTML Star, and Is Web Design Dead? 21:40 Grunt is dead? What about Gulp? Q & A: 27:04 I’m curious to know how we as a community are handling touch events on mobile devices at the moment? Specifically referring to dropdown/fly-out menus. Is there a popular jQuery/JS library you’d recommend? 35:15 Every now and then, my job requires me to code an html email template. I usually have to look online to see what email clients can and can’t handle, but lately I’ve been getting a lot of contradictory answers. Is there a CanIUse.com for emails? 40:05 Is it possible to (and how can one) avoid code redundancy / DRY violations when supporting non-media query browsers like IE8 and below during responsive design implementation? 50:37 Can you explain a bit about what Compass is, how to use it, and what makes it so great? 58:34 What are the benefits of having a responsive design vs a separate mobile site? http://shoptalkshow.com/episodes/098-lyza-danger-gardner/
