JavaScript on the JVM

We should do a meetup (series?) about (server side) JavaScript specifically running on the JVM. There's some interesting characteristics and features that are not possible with client side JS or node.js (generators, list comprehensions, block scope, destructuring assignments, interoperability with Java, etc.).

Could also talk about Java 7's enhanced support for dynamically typed languages like JavaScript.

I can help present but I'll be traveling until the 21st of Aug. We could look at creating lightweight server side APIs in JavaScript.

    Trying to contain the hyperbole, but first getting some hot JS tips like using Generators and learning Block Scope, then getting hit with E4X knowledge and finishing it off with an intro to the server-side JS of Cloud9 goodness was mind-blowing. Eric rode in on a hoverbike of awesome, and was all like, oh you think this is awesome, let me pull the camera back and pan up to reveal my full sized USS Enterprise of awesome!

    Eric delivered a great talk and demo, very impressed and excited to get coding on the JVM

    Cool. I think it's an interesting topic because it brings JavaScript out of the browser and allows you to tap into the huge Java ecosystem. Of course you also get the benefits of the JVM such as "green threads" and the ability to mix languages within the same application (i.e., Ruby Python, JavaScript, etc.).
