About the Site

When I talk about having an "offsite strategy" meeting, I'm looking to get out of the office and have some good, "strategic" conversation over a cup of coffee or a beer. Back when I worked for a software development company, we did our best design work at a hot dog stand in Des Plaines, IL; since then, I've always found it more fun to conduct some "bidness" in the proper atmosphere.

For myself, this site serves a practical purpose; I want to be able to quickly identify a short list of candidate spots to get together, based on your location and mine.

Original Site: 2009

When building the first version of this site, I was scratching an itch ... I was interested in working with Google Maps, and I was seeing a lot of action around jQuery. Back then, there were lots of hassles with cross-browser compatibility, the intricacies of CSS, details about working with images - plenty of details that really advanced my thinking on web design.

I also left a few tabs out there for "future projects" - like, posting pictures from my travels or links to my writings (in multiple locations). Kind of a scattergun design for a web site - again, just an excuse to get some hands-on coding done.

Of course, if you have any feedback - or suggested locations - please let me know.

Major Update: 2016

A few years go by, and all I'd really done is build up my list of great sites to meetup - but not much programming past that initial effort. Fast forward to 2016, and there are any number of new technologies to catch up on: HTML5, CSS3 and Frameworks, responsive design, a new API for Google Maps. Plus, a new application idea just itching to become a mobile app.

And so, a major rewrite - really from the ground up, starting with HTML5 and Bootstrap. Plus, I'm using this effort to get serious about learning Javascript - got to advance beyond cut-and-paste scripting from web searches!

As always - a work in process; but I am always open to feedback and suggestions; many of the new features that are makingtheir way into the site come from the folks that use the site to connect and collaborate with me!
