While I will miss all the free outdoor summer arts/cultural events that I promote over the summer (this is in addition to Cleveland's tech events that I promote year round), this fall is looking like a lot will be happening in Cleveland. Be sure to watch for information on Ingenuity Cleveland the weekend of September 20-22. Also, I have announced all my WebSigCleveland.org fall meetings. Please go to the www.WebSigCleveland.org website and mark your calendar!

Here are this week's Cleveland tech, entrepreneur, and social media meetings as we start September and the fall season.

Over the summer I like to promote a few of the free outdoor arts events in which I am interested.  This week, in addition to WOW Concerts and Cleveland Shakespeare Festival, I have learned that the Cleveland Museum of Art is having free concerts and films at their new space for contemporary art in Cleveland -- Transformer Station.

Cleveland GiveCamp - ClevelandGiveCamp.org - This is a special week in Cleveland in which over 200 tech volunteers meet once a year to assist local nonprofits with their technical needs.

Rustbelt Refresh Web Design Conference

Writing about the May 3, 2013​, Rustbelt Refresh Conference is difficult, since there was so much interesting information shared at the meeting that it is impossible to include it all. It was the first Cleveland conference dedicated to web design and front-end development.

Bootstrap: Powerful & Easy HTML/CSS Templates

At the October 20, 2012, WebSigCleveland.org meeting, attendees were given an in-depth introduction to a collection of HTML/CSS components, as well as JavaScript extensions, that make the creation of websites easier -- Bootstrap. After I saw a May 15, 2012, presentation on Bootstrap from Twitter by the Cleveland Adobe Users Group leader, Dan Vega, I asked him to do his presentation at a WebSigCleveland.org meeting. Dan did a great job sharing his knowledge of the subject, and prepared an incredible set of slides that will be a resource for WebSigCleveland.org members going forward.

Here is a summary from my notes of some of the key points learned that day, along with a list of other related resources. I hope you find these as useful as I did.

Medwish serving the world!

 

On Saturday, November 3rd, we had a fascinating time learning about MedWish International with several other Cleveland Bloggers.  For the past 20 years, MedWish has been collecting surplus medical supplies to send to developing countries who greatly need them. MedWish began as an idea of Dr. Lee Ponsky. Dr. Ponsky, who was an undergraduate college student at the time, was working with volunteers in Africa, and saw the great need for medical supplies. He learned that these supplies could literally mean the difference between life and death.
