Inaugural MadJS Meetup: 5:30, Horizon coworking space

Hi Everyone,

First, and again, thank you all for getting involved in MadJS.  The interest in a Madison based Javascript interest group has been fantastic, and really encouraging.  

So, now its time to hold our first meeting.  We are scheduled for 9/14 at 5:30 PM at the Horizon co-working space.  There are two great topics lined up as well.  Southpole Steve is going to talk with us about JQuery Mobile.  I'm working up a talk on testing JS using Jasmine, how to do it right, and with minimal overhead.  Anyone else?

Thanks to everyone who chimed in with the dates that work for them, and apologies to any of you who have a conflict on the 14th.  We hope to see you at the next meeting in October.

For any of you who haven't yet been up to the Horizon coworking space, its a fantastic office, and we are really grateful to them for hosting us.  Here is where they are located:

Suite 818

The US Bank Building
1 S. Pinckney St.
Madison, WI 53701

    The presentations were tantalizing. I want to keep track of where Clojure is going -- the ability to save jQuery bandwidth in particular would be awesome. Really like what I saw of Jasmine for unit testing. And jQuery Mobile is high on my todo list.

    Tough to say how Skype will work in best in a meetup environment. Does anyone have experience having people Skype in to a meetup?

    September 14, 2011

  • Stephen L

    We wouldn't need to display skype? just transmit and hear other's comments, questions, right? If a projector is needed for the presentation, I could bring one. If so, requester needs to please say what their preferred interface is: VGA, USB, S or analog (HMDI not supported on this unit)

    September 14, 2011

  • Timothy N.

    Good suggestion! Is there a large screen on the premises where we could display Skype-rs?

    September 14, 2011

  • Stephen L

    We could do a skype conference call for overflow? Especially since skype is supported on android?

    Re: 25% overbooking

    I think we're already at that number. I know at least 4 people who haven't RSVP'd or added themselves to the Waiting List and were planning on going.

    September 14, 2011

  • Devin W.

    I made this suggestion earlier today for the next scheduled meetup.

    September 14, 2011

  • Timothy N.

    How about suggestions for a bigger space for the next meeting?

    How many can actually fit in the room? I'd say 20 is a good guess, but I'd overbook by maybe 25% to account for no-shows.

    September 14, 2011

  • Devin W.

    Waiting list? Seriously?

    September 14, 2011

  • Timothy N.

    And then there were none...
