This group began life as a Sencha/Ext JS focused group, but we decided that there's simply too much interesting stuff going on in web app development today to limit ourselves to a single technology. We'll still discuss Ext (and especially Sencha Touch) when relevant, but our newly-expanded focus is on keeping up with the latest trends in the overall web application space. Regardless of your specific background or current technical stack, anyone who wants to be a well-rounded developer and keep a finger on the pulse of modern development will love this group.
Our format will have several areas of focus, which go beyond the typical meetup:
Current Events and Trends
Technical Deep Dive
We want each meetup to focus on one or two specific areas of web technology and dive into them deeply enough to be really informative. There are so many tools, libraries and frameworks out there that no one has time to evaluate everything. Just a few examples of things we might dive into, in no particular order: RequireJS, Bower, Jasmine, Backbone, CoffeeScript, HAML, SASS/LESS, jQuery, Angular, etc. Basically, you don't have time to attend every topic-specific meetup in the world, so we'll bring the most interesting topics to our meetup!
