Guys, I'm sorry for bombarding JS groups with my announcements again, but we're having some cool topics lately and this one is purely JavaScript-related so I thought you might be interested.

Michael Bolin, author of the?book about?Closure and developer behind open-sourcing Closure is going to present it next Thursday at our Meetup.

We still have a few seats left so feel free to RSVP:

Thank you,

?? ? ? ? Sergey

On?November 11th,?Michael Bolin?(@bolinfest),?author of "Closure: The Definitive Guide"?will give a talk about compiling web sites using Closure compiler!

Michael Bolin?is a former Google engineer who spent his four years there working on Google Calendar, Google Tasks, and the?Closure Compiler. He recently published?Closure: The Definitive Guide?(O'Reilly 2010), because as a frontend developer at Google, he used the Closure Tools suite on a daily basis and made a number of contributions to it. His last project at Google was to open-source the Closure Compiler. He is a blogger, often writing about web development, and graduated with both Computer Science and Mathematics degrees from MIT. Michael is currently a software engineer at Yext.

Today, web developers must often choose between a simple development setup and a complex build process to create an optimized web site. Most developers opt to do the former because it is much easier. This talk will introduce tools and techniques you can use to develop a build process that will produce an optimized version of your website. Not only will this make your site faster for your users, it will also make development faster for your engineers because having an automated way to package up your web site will help catch errors earlier. In particular, Michael will show how the Closure Tools from Google can be employed to facilitate web development and yield significant performance benefits.

We also started?Books section?at our last session and I created the page with a list of performance-books:

I'll keep updating the list so please let me know of all the good performance-related books!

Catchpoint?( to sponsor us by providing 10% discount on their products and services to you, our members as well as providing several copies of "Complete Web Monitoring" eBook by?Alistair Croll and Sean Power (I talked about Sean's?great?workshop about metrics at our Velocity 2010 review session a couple months ago).

Michael also promised to bring a few copies of his book so we're going to raffle them all off!
So be prepared to answer the questions about performance ;)

I hope this will become a good tradition at our events.
