Portland JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

This will be a lightning talk meeting!  I encourage everyone to give a short presentation - five minutes or less - especially if you have not presented at pdxjs before.  The talk can be on anything you want.

Pick a topic and make some slides, if you want to use slides. A five minute talk works well with ten or fewer slides, which gives you 30 seconds per slide. Add your name and a link to your slides (if any) to the signup sheet.

In case you would like guidance, here are a couple of links on giving lightning talks:

Don't worry about the A/V equipment - that will be handled for you.

In addition, Kyle Drake will be presenting on Coinpunk, the future of browser cryptography, why he thinks server-side encryption and password hashing is going away, and how to use HTML5/JS/Node to develop secure applications for Bitcoin, a technology Rickard Falkvinge called "the Napster of banking".

Feel free to join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/pdxjs if you too are a JavaScript admirer. Or visit our web site for more information at http://pdxjs.com/.

If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please e-mail Luc Perkins <[masked]> and Jesse Hallett <[masked]>.

      If you have never given a technical presentation before, I think that this is a good opportunity to get started! I have found that speaking at user group meetings has opened a lot of doors for me.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
