Refresh the Triangle's "On Regeneration: When The Old Becomes New Again"

About the Event

January 27, 2011

American Underground, Durham, NC

Cue Ira Glass voice-over: “This month, one theme, three stories.” Designer, developer, and CEO will share how concepts and tools of yore occasionally resurge with new potential in the light of recent creative, technological, or other developments. 1) See how your web design approaches change when 1999’s four-eyed, brace-faced Fluid Layout hotly returns twelve years later as Responsive Design. 2) From a dev stand-point, understand Smalltalk’s influence on Ruby, Lisp’s parenthood of Clojure, Self’s connection to JavaScript, and why several languages are enjoying a resurgence. 3) And from a business standpoint, hear why in an age of mass layoffs, job-hopping and fail-fast startups, the companies (and employees) who make long-term commitments and embrace familial cultures—warts and all—are winning in the long run.
