Intro to Adobe Illustrator on Oct 29
Are you jealous of all your designer friends who can whip up Illustrator images in an instant for the laser, for their website, for a client? Curious just what Illustrator can do? Come learn with Caitlin Sherman, a friend of Resistor who has been using Adobe Illustrator consistently since entering the fashion design industry four years ago.

Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft are collaborating on a series of new vocabularies that we can use in our websites to better mark up our pages. HTML5′s Microdata allows you to leverage these vocabularies.

Why should you care? Well, take it from the search engine providers themselves: “Search engines including Bing, Google and Yahoo! rely on this markup to improve the display of search results, making it easier for people to find the right web pages.”

Want to learn more about how Microdata may improve your search results snippets? NYCR member Alexis Goldstein will be giving a class on Microdata next Wednesday night. For more details and to RSVP, see: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/1571260683
