'Giving Javascript a pair of eyes' / 'The New Era of JS'

Another month, another Bristech outing and this month we have two fresh talks on the perennially popular topic of Javascript: Tom Hallam (@tomhallam) is going to chat to you about the possibilities of computer vision with Node.js and various open source computer vision libraries in his talk entitled "Giving Javascript a pair of eyes". In the second talk, Jack Franklin (@Jack_Franklin) is going to wax lyrical about some of the enterprise javascript frameworks out there including GruntJS and EmberJS in his talk entitled "The New Era of JS". It will certainly prove to be an interesting evening!

As ever, we will have beer (on tap) and food; this month we are foregoing the pizza and opting for some veggie tacos from a local Bristol vendor "El Greengo's Tacos" (@ElgreengoSimon) so Mexican hats are compulsory ;)

    Really good to speak to you guys, glad so many of you could make it! I'll be posting the code up soon, I'm having issues with Github at the moment - I'll keep you posted - feel free to follow me on Twitter @tomhallam.

    50 pints, 45 veggie tacos and 2 speakers later! Massive thanks to our guest speakers @tomhallam and @Jack_Franklin for an evening's infotainment on the finer details of JavaScript - the 'grouchification' of various members of the audience was as unexpected as it was entertaining! Thanks also to local catering legend @ElGreengoSimon who did a sterling job feeding us en masse...

    Hi all, there's a slight change to the venue tomorrow - we're still at The Island, use the same entrance but go down the stairs instead of up.

    Follow the Bristech signs through the rabbit warren that is the inmates area of the old police station, through the exercise yard and into the old cells area.
