JavaScript MVC Showcase

Lots of Flask developers spend a lot of time working with the frontend. Everyone's talking about JavaScript MVC frameworks, but how do you know where to get started?

This event will feature three of the most popular frameworks, AngularJS, Backbone.js, and Ember.js. Learn how each framework works and what sets it apart from the others.

Speakers include:

Darrell Silver: Darrell from Thinkful will be speaking about AngularJS.

Luke Melia: Luke will be speaking about Ember.js.

Gina Maini: Gina will be speaking about Backbone.js.

    One of tonight's questions was around performance issues using frameworks, and I coincidentally came across this post from FiDi neighbors FogCreek:

    Under the "Tuesday" header there's a description of how Backbone made things slow, and how they made it fast.

    Are there plans to record these presentations or post their slides online, in the unfortunate scenario of one not being able to make it?

      Fun facts for us all. 1.In SF, CA last year they had a similar showcase,­ and there are videos there. Perhaps in a year the tradeoffs have changed though. (Whoa, 650 people attended it at Yelp!); 2.There is an app that is written in different frameworks to get a feel for them,­ ; 3.Also last year, a blog, http://sporto.github....­ ; 4.A great table of features from just recently ,­
