User group meeting

At this month's meetup we have Martin Rio (axolx) lined up to present on an new method of controlling page layouts they've developed at OMBU called Tiles.

From Martin:

In this presentation we'd like to share Tiles, an approach to page layouts we've been working on at OMBU. This approach uses core blocks, Context, and Beans to let admins manage page layouts by adding, arranging, and setting the widths of blocks directly on the page. It's an alternative way to creating layouts, such as via the block and context UIs, Panels, and sometimes even theme regions. When coupled with a Bootstrap fluid-grid theme, this approach allows building modern HTML5 layouts well suited for desktop and mobile.

This is really exciting stuff, and should make for an excellent presentation.

As always, the meetups start at 6pm at the offices of OpenSourcery at 1636 NW Lovejoy. After the meetup, we head up to the Lucky Lab NW.
