Client-side JS error logging + Introduction to Ember.js

Behold... we are back!

After a long hot summer (eh...) in Cleveland, we're laying down some more tracks for the majestic return of the Cleveland JavaScript ninjas!  We're bringing together the madness and the talent of the JavaScript greatness in the Cleveland area - all of our respective JavaScript gurus, ninjas, padawans, karate masters, sensei's and yogis.

Once again, we're bringing together the Cleveland JavaScript and Cleveland Node.js meetup groups for a session that spans topics of interest to both client-side and server-side developers.  We hope you will join us!


The Facts

The gathering will be most triumphant and will be held on Monday, August 26,[masked]:30pm at Hyland Software located at 28500 Clemens Road in Westlake, OH.

The awesome people at Hyland have once again graciously offered their support to the growing Cleveland technology community. They've made available their giant conference room with three projectors, audio and internet connectivity. We will have pizza and refreshments on hand provided by Cloud CMS.


The Presentations

We will have two presentations this time, both of which will be fairly in depth and will be ideal for developers who want to pick up some new chops and ask some pretty deep, code-level questions.

(1) John O'Donnell - It's 1am! Do you know what your JS web app is doing?

You learned the "Good Parts", linted your code, followed Test Driven Development and tested on every device and browser (even IE 7!) before deploying your JS app. But you still worry about users encountering client-side errors, or (gasp!) get incomprehensible error reports from users that you can't recreate.

It's enough to keep a developer up all night with worry.

Server-side developers could always rely on good old log files to track errors and other important events. Now that more and more development is happening on the client-side, we need new tools to track browser errors as they happen and help uncover how and why they occur.

John O'Donnell, founder of Critical Mash, will give an introduction to client-side error logging and a few of the many services available to help you log, track and diagnose your client-side errors.

(2) Joe Fiorini - An introduction to Ember.js

Choice is good, right? Sometimes it's tough to believe that, with the overwhelming number of options in Javascript frameworks. Let's discuss why Ember.js exists and what it can do for you!

We'll look at the basic architecture of Ember apps and how it uses convention-over-configuration and MVC to make large, rich applications easier to build. After this talk, hopefully you'll find the framework decision a little easier.

 

COME ONE COME ALL!

The Cleveland JS meetup is a great place to hang if you want to sharpen your skills, ask gnarly coding questions, find development talent or promote your project.  Got something to contribute - come down and hang with us!

See you there!

    great info, had to sneak out early (again). would be interested in meeting more often for shorter periods of time. 2.5+ hours is tough after working all day.
    thanks for organizing, this is my second time attending and am totally looking forward to number three!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
