WTF is FRED?

FRED stands for FRont End Developers,
and is (as far as we can tell) the first
multi-city meetup for front-end devs.

FRED provides an outlet for front-end
developers to talk and share about
this exciting and crucial new craft.

Why?

So much to learn... Tools, workflows, boilerplates,
testing, different devices, browsers...


Let's help each

other out


What can you do?

Give a man a fish



"Give a developer a code 

snippet and they can get 

something working once.

Teach them how to code and 

they can sit in front of a 

computer, drink beer all day

 and create cool sh*t."
