    Its just called the Chrome auto save plugin

    June 22, 2012

  • Tim H.

    Slow start, but A number of interesting features described in the last half.
    Appreciate the links also. Using media query to modify for the mobile format was awsome.
    Overall; Great presentation !

    Would love to see a talk on Canvas , the js API (maybe a series on this), and would like to see more on video/audio capabilities in the future.

    What was the name of that chrome plugin that would automatically reload the page with any changes saved to the source?

    :(( I missed this one yesterday.

    There should be more "Review" and "Covering the basics" type talks like this for this new and not-yet-widely-adopted technology, less about what cool esoteric tricks you can do with it.

    I think it is at the second floor of the engauge building. This meeting was rescheduled from April.

    June 1, 2012

  • Heather

    Ok i am extremely confused. Is this now at Park Tavern?? This is still on the second floor of the Enguage building correct? I never heard back from the organizer verifying floor and finding, is it still Enguage Is there a room number?

  • Toby H.

    If anyone else would like to share some knowledge along with Kevin and me, let me know. We could tag team this.

    May 24, 2012

  • Toby H.

    Kevin: sure, I am for it.

  • Kevin B.

    Id be interested in presenting a lightning talk if that is the concensis

    May 22, 2012

  • David P.

    What about making this a "lightning talk" where more than one person can speak for about 5-10 min each? This way someone could just focus on layouts or the new input types without having to worry about having to have an hour+ to talk.

    I agree, this feature of meetup.com has since been disabled. Members can still suggest meetups, but they cannot schedule.

  • Michelle S.

    ok so whats bothering me is why would somebody post a place and somebody else a date when they hadnt arranged this event or had any lesson/speakers lined up? this is crazy especially when you see how many people were wanting to attend.

    2 · April 25, 2012

  • Wesley H.

    We need a speaker for this event. I'm in the process of lining up next months speaker, so I pushed this to June. Let me know if someone would like to take it

    April 25, 2012

  • Toby H.

    Jeremy: This meeting was sort of suggested organically. I don't know that anyone has volunteered to speak. Did you make reservations for the space at Park Tavern? If we can't find a speaker, we'll have to reschedule this meeting.

    April 25, 2012

  • Jeremy B.

    Sorry for any confusion but I am not speaking. I am here to learn also. Is there an agenda or speakers?
