Fear_Front: A Spook-tacular Front-End Extravaganza

When it comes to front-end, there's plenty to be afraid of – validation states, forgotten semi-colons, missing media queries, oh my! In Fore_Front’s third event, we'll explore tricks and treatments to address problems that all front-enders share.

There will be coffee, candy, and a costume contest.
