AngularJS / Functional JavaScript

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Siddique Hameed will present An Angle on AngularJS:

AngularJS is another "new kid" on the block in the so-called JavaScript jungle. Its been touted as a super-heroic framework and seems to be providing good results, comparable or better than what can be achieved with similar data-binding / MVC frameworks like Knockout, Backbone.js and Ember.js. The biggest challenge facing AngularJS adopters is its comprehensiveness. It presents an enormous amount of material to learn and absorb on the road to developer productivity.

So, what are some of the sweet-spots and pain points in using AngularJS? How does it compare to developing Web applications using classic tools like JQuery, Prototype, and Dojo? These points and more will be discussed. A basic introduction will be provided, followed by a code walkthrough of an end-to-end miniature Web application that demonstrates the core concepts and features of AngularJS.

After a short break, Perrin Westrich will take us on an exploration of functional programming with JavaScript.

Starting about 8:15pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and node.js in general.

Complementary sodas and sandwiches will be provided, and the pub downstairs serves good beer, so come hungry, come thirsty, bring your laptop and be ready to code!

    It was like two for the price of one! A double feature! (Three if you count Jessica.) Even with a slide show for extra entertainment at intermissions. Cant thank the presenters, food sponsor, Mike and Michael enough times. Feel like I came away with a lot more than I went in with. (I know... not sayin' much ;)
