Building 3rd Party Widgets - Jonathan Julian

How does the Facebook Like button work? How do sites like Twitter offer widgets that you can embed on your own blog? In this session, we'll build our own widget for cross-domain communication, while also covering dynamic script loading, JSONP, iframe hacking, HTML5 PostMessage, etc. 

CreativeJS Demo - Ricky Blaha/Cory Hudson

In-browser graphical capabilities are becoming richer than ever, and you can now create truly beautiful visual effects with JavaScript and HTML5. Join us as we demonstrate some of amazing graphical effects that are possible using methods pioneered by Seb Lee-Delisle (and taught in his training courseshttp://creativejs.com/

Hungry?

Food will be provided - we have wings along with cheese and veggie trays. Some cold beverages as well.

Lightning Talks

Do you have something you'd like to share? A new library, a cool project, or just need a soapbox to rant from? We're making time for multiple 5-minute lightning talks at the beginning of every meetup. Email the organizers and we'll add you to the schedule.

We have a new venue!

Advertising.com has offered their space to us for this meetup, it's located in Tide Point in the Ivory Building. Enter the building under the large sign that says "Ivory" and walk by the big blue crab then take an immediate left. You can take the water taxi over from Fells Point (landing #8) to landing #10 or you can drive over and park in any spot marked "Visitor" or in the "F" lot.

The green is where the designated visitor spaces are. Those are marked "visitor" on the pavement. Watch out for 'reserved' or handicap. The purple shaded in area is one of the employee lots which is available for us to park in. The Blue marker next to the building is the entrance to the Advertising.com meeting space.

    Great meetup. Good crew .. and very educational.

    Demos were excellent, and pretty much right at the right level. Very enjoyable! Timing could be improved as we started almost 40 minutes after the published start time, and the 5-minute break took 15. It may help to reserve networking time for the end.

    Laptops are not needed, but they're not discouraged either. Tonight I hope to have a little demo so at least bring a device with wifi!

    since I haven't been before I'm wondering--will we be "observing" or are laptops needed? I have a bunch of videos encoding that don't look like they'll be finished in time.

  • Nick G.

    me. I'll drive you back.

    January 31, 2012

  • Paul

    Anyone heading up towards station north after the meeting (or towards a light rail station)?

    ...till you eat so many wings you pass out in the corner...seriously though, we rarely go over two hours. Also, there will be tons of wings, some cheese and veggie trays along with cold refreshments of the adult variety.

    Nick's got me covered. Thanks for the information, very useful for future reference! See y'all tuesday.

  • Shea Frederick (.

    Yeah, the ride there is easy - all downhill, 8 miles from Hampden - the ride back though is a bit of work.

  • agnellvj

    It's totally bikable. Shea rides from Hampden all the time.

    Take the 3 bus to Mariner arena from Charles Village, its on St. Paul

    January 27, 2012

  • Paul

    If you come before 6pm you can take the water taxi from fells, or you can take the 1 bus from mariner arena.

    January 27, 2012

  • Nick G.

    I can drive you down.

  • David L.

    Any suggestions on how someone from the Hopkins Homewood campus / Charles Village area can get to the Ivory Building without a car?

    January 26, 2012

  • Cate C

    Great! Thank you for increasing the number.

    January 25, 2012

  • Jonathan J.

    We have just raised the attendee limit - the venue will hold 60 people with tables and then there's standing room. Please re-RSVP!

    January 25, 2012

  • Cate C

    How disappointing! This was to be the first meeting I attended and I didn't know their was a limit on attendees--I was waiting to verify that I would be able to attend before RSVPing. For future events is it best to RSVP right away and then change that if not able to attend?

    January 25, 2012

  • Adam Z.

    This would be a great talk, maybe even touch on opening up JS APIs a bit in here too?

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.
