§ What 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.

§ Can I Get Involved In FRED?

Yes! Whether it's starting your own FRED, speaking at a FRED event, or just joining in the discussion online, we'd love to have your voice contribute to FRED.

FRED is not a bureacracy, and you don't need anyone's permission. Just start something and keep us updated. We'll help however we can. As a reminder we do not endorse recruiters and solicitors at any FRED event. At its core FRED is a learning platform to connect with the community about Front-end Web Development.

§ Who Is FRED?

FRED is you, me, and other FRont End Developers around the web. To become a FRED, you just have to attend a meet up or join in on the discussion online. It's that easy!

The FRED organization itself was originally started by Chris Van Patten and Dennis Gaebel in Buffalo, N.Y.. After a successful couple of months, they decided FRED was ready to see the world, and with the help of Simon Owen from Manchester, U.K., began building the FRED movement.

§ Contributing

Requires Ruby 2.1.2

If you have bundler, skip ahead, if not head over to your command line (e.g. Terminal) and run the following (this installs bundler globally)…

gem install bundler

If you get a permissions error try running as sudo:

sudo gem install bundler

Install Ruby Gems:

bundle install

Start Jekyll, Compile Compass and Watch for Changes:

rake

You should now be able to view in a browser at http://localhost:4000/

Adding Your City:

To add you city simply duplicate the “sample” directory within the root of this project and rename. Make sure to name it something cool that ends with “FRED” (all upper case). We've also provided the hexagon .psd logo within this directory for groups to customize and use for each individual chapter. Be creative as you'd like with this shape. Anything inside that is tasteful goes!
