October: Inside Brackets with Kevin Dangoor

Inside Brackets: open source code editor built with the web for the web

Kevin Dangoor will introduce Brackets, an open source project started by Adobe to build a web-focused code editor using web technologies. He'll dig in to how Brackets works and how you add a bit of your own JavaScript magic to make Brackets do whatever you want.


The computer that Kevin Dangoor uses today is about 30 bajillion times more powerful than the computer on which he started learning programming. Over the past few years, Kevin has been very involved in open source software. He founded the CommonJS project in 2009 while working on Mozilla Bespin. He was engineering manager and then product manager for Firefox developer tools before joining Adobe to work on Brackets in December 2012. Prior to Mozilla, Kevin founded the TurboGears Python web framework project and Paver Python project scripting tool. He has also written a series of children's fantasy novels called 11 Quests.

    I really appreciate everyone who came to check out Brackets and hope you all found the session interesting and useful. Thanks for putting up with the disruption!

    Also, a big thank you to everyone who stepped in with lightning talks and to Miguel Castillo especially for digging in to Brackets extensions at just the right time!

    If you have any questions about Brackets, do feel free to ask me!

      I really enjoyed it and was looking forward to finally meet one of the Brackets guys! So thank you sooo much for your time, especially under the circumstances you were in. Maybe next time we can do one about writing extensions :)

    Stuck in traffic. Can't make it. Will you have a recording of the talk?

    Our speaker has a family emergency and may be late or might not be able to make it. Plan B will be lightning talks! Please consider a 5-minute presentation that you might give to the group. Very informal.

    I'm working late too, so won't make it in time for the presentation this evening, but i've cloned the files and will do some brackets experiments

    We've got a huge deadline to meet tonight, so we can't make it! :( Hopefully, Kevin can post his slides!

    Can I get recording or presentation slides for this meetup as I won't be able to attend it?

    October 14, 2013

    • Brian G.

      I'm sorry. We don't record our meetings and it looks like Kevin doesn't have any slides. Perhaps, Kevin can put some links to resources after the event?

      October 14, 2013

  • Kevin D.

    I don't know if there will be a recording, but I don't have any slides for the talk. I'll just be demoing and showing things in Brackets itself.
