Announcing a new Meetup for The Baltimore/DC JavaScript Users Group!

What: The Baltimore/DC JavaScript Users Group January Meetup

When: January 6,[masked]:30 PM

Beehive Baltimore
2400 Boston St #308
Baltimore, MD 21221

The first meetup for the Baltimore/DC JavaScript group in 2010 has an exciting presentation from Mike Subelsky on SproutCore. Kicking off the new year with an introduction to yet another JavaScript based RIA framework - are you seeing the major trend toward creating serious applications in the browser? You should be, because knowing how to use and work with these frameworks is a highly desired skill in the job market right now.

Mike will be demonstrating how to use JavaScript to build fast, fluid, and feature-rich web apps using the SproutCore framework. This will be a summarized version of the 3-hour tutorial he gave at RailsConf 2009.

About Mike:
Mike Subelsky is co-founder of and one of the organizers of Ignite Baltimore. Before becoming a JavaScript hacker, he was a cybersecurity analyst and U.S. Navy cryptologic officer for seven years.

Hacking Before the Meetup:
Anyone who wants to help hack on a fun project before the meetup is welcome to come early, we will be at the Beehive from 5pm till the meetup starts to hack on a project that involves JavaScript (duh!), ExtJS and the Midas specification. This could be a great learning experience in itself for anyone who wants to use/enhance browser based Rich Text Editors.

See you there!
