Asynchronous Module Definition (AMD) JavaScript

I've been using AMD on my current projects via the Dojo toolkit. AMD can also be found in RequireJS, MooTools, jQuery and other libraries. I'd like to show the group how I've been using it, get feedback (I'm no expert), and generally talk about efficient JS in the browser.

The Asynchronous Module Definition (AMD) API specifies a mechanism for defining modules such that the module and its dependencies can be asynchronously loaded. This is particularly well suited for the browser environment where synchronous loading of modules incurs performance, usability, debugging, and cross-domain access problems.

    I was an odd egg at this meetup because I'm not a coder. I came to check out the CodeChops group since I'm interested in future collaborations via my filmmaking. But I was surprised by how much of the AMD talk I understood. I can only assume this means Mark is a great lecturer! He seemed clear and easy to follow. The presentation was a good length; it covered a lot of ground but was not so long people got antsy. Coders shared productive thoughts with each other. The people present were all very nice and it was great to meet them.
