JSChannel talks announced!

We're delighted to announce the two talks that will be taking place at the inaugural JSChannel meetup!

The first talk will be from Ben Gillies (@bengillies). Ben's a software developer currently working for Digital Science, an innovative technology company based in London trying to change the way science is done. Currently working with d3 and Ember, he's been making JavaScript heavy client side apps for several years now and has developed a carefully honed aversion to complexity, something he now finds somewhat ironic given his technology choices. He used to work for Osmosoft, the open source arm of BT on an ambitious extensible web platform called TiddlySpace. The talk will be on all things ES6, titled "The evolution of web frameworks: ES6 and beyond".

The second talk will be from Joe Pettersson (@Joe8Bit). Joe's a long time JavaScript developer, speaker at conferences and soon to be author on the subject. He's currently the Technical Lead of UI Engineering at McKinsey & Company (and the meetup organiser!) where he works on modern web and mobile applications for McKinsey's many clients. He's going to be talking about something close to his heart, notifications in async JavaScript: patterns and anti-patterns, as well as a short intro to the mechanics of the event loop and what asynchronicity actually is in JavaScript.

There will of course be plenty of time for questions after the talks! And all of the slides will be available soon after the meetup.
