    This was my first time, and definitely not my last. Great group of people, great discussions and presentations.

    Just to answer a question left unanswered last night: Amber-Smalltalk can be served from and run from static files. No node needed. That was just to allow Commits to a repo. You can also write code in Amber-Smalltalk that can be a web server on node (after transcompiled). Great conversations!

    Of course, I'll be there as per usual, I'll show some of the experiments I've been doing with manipulating SVG images with jQuery, and the simple CoffeeScript goodness behind it.

    My RSVP is only probably, and I will be late -- or not make it at all.
