Speaker bio

I have been developing websites/applications from past 7 years, have worked on as large project as blogs for "GSM World".

I have been using Foundation since its version 2, have designed more than 100 website on it. The largest one being www.nextbigwhat.com the website was launched successfully but they sooner realized that they dont need a responsive website so its not live anymore.

I also run a small company of developers and designers who share the same passion for web and Mobile. - www.aspricot.com

We have started using Foundation as our default responsive framework at Aspricot, until client specifies that he needs twitter bootstrap.

    Sounds like a good workshop topic.

    I'd recommend including intros on the latest versions of both frameworks, Bootstrap & Foundation and a comparison between the two – mainly because there will be a lot of users familiar with Bootstrap - before digging deeper into Foundation and customization.
