MV* Showdown

We will be discussing some of the more popular MV* frameworks in a different format. Each MV* framework will be presented by a different team that is using it. They will show the strengths and weaknesses of their chosen framework and answer all our questions.
So far, we have Ember, Backbone and Knockout covered. Angular is suspiciously missing, so if anybody wanted to pick that up, let me know.
It should be an informative evening, and hopefully fun.

    Really enjoyed the presentations the other night, everyone. I admit that the vast majority of that information was beyond my current scope of knowledge but I hope to expand that with time and practice...and more of these meetings. Thanks to everyone for the effort you put into gathering and organizing everything. It's much appreciated.

    Seriously! Amazing turnout last night. Thanks to all my fellow presenters and to everybody who showed up.

    Obviously each of the frameworks could be the subject or many meetups all by themselves, but I think the purpose of last night worked.

    It was awesome to see such a good turn out last night! Here are the Angular slides:

    The Ember.js code I walked through is from this screencast: http://emberjs.com/guides/

    All the presentations were great (although had to jet and I missed Ember regretfully). Gave a great overview in the small time allotted. Well done everyone.

    Large group of developers covered the topics well. I've never used on old these frameworks but if I need on in the future I learned enough to start making an intelligent decision.

    This "showdown" will be a little off if it doesn't show a few important things...

    Testability:
    - Unit testing?
    - End-to-end testing?
    - Does have dependency Injection?
    - Manual dependency injection or does it have a container?


    Maintainability factors:
    - Does the framework force developers into a structure? (which is beneficial for large teams)
    - Is it the "wild west" where you can stick code anywhere? (which is a nightmare on large teams)
    - Does the framework require all of your developers to know modular JavaScript development patterns?
    - Does it modularize entities for you?
    - How does this framework protect your global namespace from junk?


    What can it do other than just "MVC":
    - Does it have built in client-side routing?
    - Can it format text such as a date string or currency for you?
    - Does it do form validation?
    - Does it require JQuery? If not, does it integrate well with JQuery if need be?
    - How well does it integrate with existing JQuery plugins?

      You know all the facts I've considered? Cool trick.

      Sadly you'll have to disagree with me another day. I probably won't make this one.

    Looks like I'll finally be able to make one of these! Looking forward to it.

    Oh yeah, I'm getting beer after the meetup if anybody is interested.

    Sounds informative

    I'm not very well versed in the frameworks of JavaScript. I am definitely beginner level. Is it acceptable for me to attend this event? I hope to learn as much as I can.

    August 11, 2013

    • Richard A.

      It's very acceptable for you to come. I encourage it. COME!

      Bonus if you wear the ninja garb.

    Gabo and I would be into talking about Angular. Sign us up!

      If you guys wanted a third, count me in.

      August 1, 2013

    • Doug D.

      Abso-lutely! I can share our docs with you.

    Just found out about this group! I can't make this one, unfortunately, but planning to be there in the future.

  • Richard A.

    So far, it's Scott Fisk and team doing Ember.js. I'll be leading a team for Backbone.js. Jake Brown will be leading Knockout.js. It looks like Doug and Gabo volunteered for Angular. Ok, this is looking like we have something...

    Will the MV* team lineups be published ahead of time?
