    Hi guys, here are the videos for each talk below:

    Dan Harden, Video APIs -

    Terrence Carroll, PhantomJS -

    Elijah Insua, Impromptu jsdom fun -

    The slides and code are linked in each video description for your convenience.

    The audio was not fabulous this time around, but have since found the best mic position for speakers so we should be better next time. I hope you enjoy the talks regardless!

    The topics covered were cutting edge, enlightening and well presented. There were huge loud rounds of applause for each. If you missed the meeting I heard there is a video floating around somewhere. Be sure to check it out; it is a must see!

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.
