      Dinesh, I thought you did great. My only critic is I have never heard of Yeoman but would have like to see more about it. Maybe part 2?

      April 22

    • Dinesh

      Thank you ! Glad you liked it. Will try to put together a demo in coming meetups.

    Hey! I'd like to talk about Firefox OS if there's still room for presentations.

    April 21

    • kcampen

      Thanks for volunteering. Our bill is full tonight, but we would love to sign you up for next months meeting if you are interested?

      April 21

    • Dale V.

      FirefoxOS will be a great topic! Too bad tonight's schedule is full. I definitely want to see it at the second meet up, though.

      April 21

  • kcampen

    Today is the day! Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight at 7pm at 2575 Willow Point Way Suite 109., Knoxville, TN!

    April 21

  • Dale V.

    So close now! Time to work on my presentation. Anything I need to know technology-wise? E.g., I may want to demo the web app locally installed on my machine (possibly in a VM).

    1 · April 14

    • kcampen

      I'll know more on that tomorrow.

      April 14

    • Dale V.

      Thanks for looking into it. Sounds like my laptop will be just fine connecting via VGA. Slides and demo ready, just need to practice to time it to about 10 minutes.

      April 18

  • Bob Y.

    I'd be happy to give a quick overview on the topic of mixins with JavaScript if you're looking for more content.

    March 12

    • kcampen

      Hey Bob, are you still planning on giving a short overview of mixins? just wanted to confirm.

      April 17

    • Bob Y.

      Yup, I'll be there, and am still planning on presenting.

      1 · April 17

  • kcampen

    Hope everyone is getting excited for next monday!

    April 14

  • Stephen K.

    I'm all nerdy-excited now. Can't wait till the twenty-first.

    1 · April 8

  • Devon C.

    Would anyone be interested in a quick intro to Gulp.js? Any front-end devs in the house? If so, I'd be happy to do a talk.

    1 · March 20

    • Devon C.

      It won't hurt my feelings if we're already booked up and need to put it off until the next meeting. Would that work out better?

      March 20

    • kcampen

      yes, lets go ahead and save your gulp talk for the next meeting. thanks devon looking forward to hearing it!

      1 · March 24

  • kcampen

    Ok guys the bill is filled up for the April meetup!
    Thank you all for the tremendous out pour of enthusiasm! I hope we can meet once a month so if you want to give a talk no worries, you can talk at the next meetup. Hope everyone is getting excited!

    March 20

  • Tom v.

    Put me down for a TypeScript "lightning talk." At some point I could also do talks on KnockoutJS, flot, and flot plugins.

    March 14

    • kcampen

      Alright Tom. thanks for volunteering. I'll put you on the list.

      March 14

  • kcampen

    We have a location! Big thanks to our member Christopher Lamm for volunteering his workplace. The meeting room has a projector which is great!

    2 · March 11

  • Aaron H.

    I should be able to make it. However, my wife is pregnant and due April 26, so there's a chance I may be otherwise occupied.

    March 11

    • Thomas S.

      Congrats, Aaron.

      March 11

    • Aaron H.

      Thanks, this is my first... so a little distracting. But I'm excited about meeting other developers in the area. :)

      March 11

  • kcampen

    Thanks so much for all the RSVP's. Keep them coming!

    Still working on a location for our meet-up. But I'm planning on having a projector, and an apple adapter. If anyone would be interested in giving a talk at the First KnoxvilleJS please don't hesitate.

    So far Dinesh has volunteered to give a talk about Yeoman. Looking forward to April! Oh yeah and we will eat Pizza and drink beer. Please let me know of any dietary restrictions.

    March 10

    • Thomas S.

      Remedy Coffee in the Old City has available space for meetings. Also, the Tech Co-operative maybe able to help out. I believe they are located in Emery Place now.

      March 11

    • kcampen

      Didn't know about the co-op. Good to know. I think we have a place for this meetup but we should keep these in mind for the future!

      March 11

  • Josh C.

    I've spent the last year and three months working on a very large AngularJS app. I'd be happy to share my experiences and tips/tricks for working in Angular.

    March 11

    • Josh C.

      Ha ha! Thanks Thomas. I'm looking forward to CodeStock this year.

      March 11

    • Josh C.

      Holy Crap! That site is still up and running, LOL!

      It's terribly out of date.

  • Thomas D.

    Any chance the talks could be on Google Hangouts? I'd love to join but in the middle of a career change.

    1 · March 10

    • kcampen

      Oh, Right! Ok yeah, This would be great. I dont have much experience with Google Hangout. Does anyone else have experience/can make this happen?

      March 11

    • Tim M.

      I may be able to set that up. I'm not a big user of Google plus, but I've done a few hangouts. I would have to use my Macbook Pro mic and camera, so I'm not sure how good the quality would be, but we could give it a shot.

      March 11

  • Tim M.

    Thanks for creating this group! Stoked.

    1 · March 9

    • kcampen

      Im excited too! If you would be interested in giving a short talk on any current projects, or fun ways to use angularjs, or anything, let me know.
