ubuntourist(This past week showed zOnny a wee bit o' SQL and pointed him at's documentation on the MySQL engine for another project he's working on. I've always found's documentation to be excellent.)10:39
replaceafillvery true10:39
zOnnyyep , ubuntourist10:40
zOnnyI also introduced myself to a nice django project 10:40
ubuntouristWe ran through some very basic examples of INSERT, DELETE, SELECT and UPDATE, as well as CREATE TABLE.10:41
ubuntouristAs for Gallaudet...10:41
ubuntouristI've been remiss with a Gallaudet invoice, and need to file for January, and soon, for February.10:41
ubuntouristI *was* stuck on some simple code and am now kicking myself since I finally figured out what I was doing wrong.10:42
ubuntouristNot really much else from me.  (Is anyone contacting Rick / National Hospital today?)10:42
lelkneralfarocan you do that alone zOnny?10:43

lelkneralfarozOnny, lets talk after this meeting10:50
lelkneralfaroanyone else want to share?10:50
nrcernaI want to share something about 2018 web design trends 10:50
lelkneralfarosounds good. please do10:51
ubuntouristI'm all ears ... er, eyes.  Do tell.10:51
nrcernaI think we could reach something like the sites in this link:10:51
replaceafillillustrations instead of photos :O10:53
nrcerna2018 trends is about to do more UI but simple 10:54
nrcernaand like replaceafill said mixing Illustrations and photos10:54
replaceafilli've always thought that choosing the right photos to represent your brand is really hard10:54
replaceafillunless you take the photos yourself10:55
replaceafill"Designing and developing user interfaces that everyone, including people with disabilities, can independently consume and interact with."10:55
ubuntouristI like some of the ideas, but speaking as someone who goes to the web for information, I find a lot of the animation / movement quite distracting and difficult to work with as a consumer. (It's okay if the primary purpose of the page is art.)10:55
ubuntouristreplaceafill, I ALWAYS stress the disability access. So +1 to that.10:57
nrcernayou're right ubuntourist , i think we can take some resources and do it like NOVA 10:57
nrcernait is just and idea10:57
lelkneralfarothanks for sharing nrcerna!10:58
ubuntouristOne recommendation there is: Temporarily turn off ALL CSS and see if the page is still readable / useful. If it is, then your structure is good and you can start adding in fancy stuff.10:58
replaceafillprogressive enhancement :)10:58
replaceafilland graceful degradation10:58
ubuntouristGraceful degradation. Story of my life. ;-)10:59
lelkneralfarohaha. :)10:59
lelkneralfaroalright well it's 11:0010:59
lelkneralfaroACTION drops the bag of gravel10:59
replaceafillthanks everybody, have a good week!11:00
ubuntouristThe other thing we should keep in mind: We bring two languages to the table. As much as possible, we should try to take advantage of that.11:00
ubuntouristACTION is done.11:00
