    As a reminder for the meetup tonight, if you park in the ATC South parking deck, you will want to end up on the Julian Carr Street (University Ford / Kia) side of ATC. If you end up on the ATC "River" / Water Tower side, just climb the exterior flight of steps next to Tyler's, hang a right, and follow the sidewalk to the Bay #5 doors.

    Here's a map to illustrate this better:

    greetings! using Dojo.js at work, was exposed to Backbone.js - how many frameworks should i familiarize myself with to feel like i am keeping up with JavaScript?

    • Michaux K.

      Project kind doesn't matter in my experience. They've all been used successfully in about any kind project you can imagine. Instead, go with your gut. Which one feels the best? To determine this I'd try this excercise for each framework, but not all in one sitting, since that could bias you: read its source code, docs, a few blog posts, talk to your coworkers, and look at a small app written in each (ie. google TODO list apps). Then ask yourself if the code, contributors, and resources, and community appeal to and/or influence the way you'd be happiest writing JavaScript? The one that best answers this question for you will likely be the one that you should choose for whatever kind of project that comes your way.

    In case you haven't seen it already, the creators of Ember.js gave a keynote talk at Fluent Conf.

    The Parking Situation:

    DPAC has an event the evening of the 8th. They will be charging $5 to park in the North Deck.

    Free parking is available in the lower level of the South Deck and along Willard St. near University Ford. There is also parking available in front of the ATC building between decks. These spots are reserved during the day (hours posted on each sign) but are available for parking after hours.

    I second your excitement, Xiaoxin! I've been doing a lot of reading and comparing of the various frameworks out there, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Ember fits into the galaxy of them.

  • Xiaoxin

    I don't know about you but I am really fired up about this event. I've been burning to learn more about ember.js after reading glowing reviews about it on the web. It's one of those frameworks that's really hot right now. I'm hoping it will spark more interest in JavaScript. Thanks.

    web developer familiar with html, some html5, css3, javascript, visual basic, json - yet in dire need of going deeper with OOP, patterns, etc. i look forward to the meeting!

    David Parham: I see value in at least being exposed to as many as JavaScript frameworks as possible, but I've chosen to focus on AngularJS (for now at least). Whenever I consider the value of exposure in lieu of experience, I try to appreciate the strengths of a foreign framework rather than attempt to become an expert. If you're paying attention to twitter, o'reilly fluent conf, new books lining the shelves of your local bookstore, coming to meetups, and questions like this one without reservation I'm sure you'll be just fine. I look forward to seeing you there!
