    It was interesting seeing the available HTML5 frameworks. I would have liked to hear more about the specific challenges that game development faces and how these frameworks solve them. In the end, their weight and abstraction may not address these problems so they are more bloat than useful.

    Chris gave a great presentation on short notice and Randall did a great job keeping the meetup going even when two of his presenters dropped out. Thanks guys!

    jQuery Templates are dead. Are you going to talk about the unreleased ones? Note: The jQuery team has decided not to take this plugin past beta. It is no longer being actively developed or maintained. See vBeta1.0.0 tag for released beta version. Requires jQuery version[masked]
