February Wellingon.js

Happy new year everyone!

We've got something special for this month's Wellington.js - Walter Rumsby, who runs the Auckland meetup, is down to give a run down of good habits for Javascript.

Our second speaker is the infamous Owen Evans, who has a talk from the trenches of building Hoist.

It'd be great to see you all, and due to it being Webstock week, could get quite full, quite fast.

We'll see you there,

Mathew & Vim

    Hey, so as I mentioned at the meetup we're looking for people to help coach and speak at Rails Girls in late March. You don't have to be super Railsy but it helps.

    Some details about the thing: http://railsgirls.com/wellington

    A form with a few extra details and to say you're interested in helping out:

    If you have any questions email us at [masked] or you can tweet me at @merxplat.

    Hey all, there were a few questions about JQuery promises at the talk and I will shamelessly self promote a blog post I recently wrote about them (based on a node.js meetup talk) here: http://maori.geek.nz/post/i_promise_this_will_be_short.

    Apologies for the short notice dropown, stubborn headache that won't go away. Looks like someone grabbed my place already, which is good.

    Ugh, and I can't make it, again :-( Next person on the reserve list gets my spot.

  • Owen E.

    I'll be there as I'm speaking so don't really need to take up space on the wait list.
