    Excellent presentations from conference-caliber presenters. Pretty amazing stuff for a local group.

    I love JavaScript!

  • Randy H.

    Solid talks. We could have a JavaScript series!

    Great presenters with great presentations.

    The "which framework is your favorite" poll favored jQuery by a greater than 9-1 margin, so it seems like more time should have been spent on advanced jQuery tactics. Personally, I was excited about learning some tricks for writing high-performance and low-memory usage jQuery, and neither of those topics were even approached. A 100% jQuery meet up would be very valuable to almost everyone in attendance yesterday.

    Nice and well focused. Could almost have been called "jQuery and handy related tools" though (which is OK). Loved the javascript code organizations & patterns presentation. I'm hoping it'll be very useful for my work going forward.

    I had a great time at the meetup tonight. I felt all of the talks complemented one another.

    March 28, 2011

  • Karl S.

    Ha! That's probably because I can't talk in a straight line.

    March 8, 2011

  • Ross H.

    It won't be a problem for you to go first Andy.

    BTW, Karl was just described as "Master Yoda" by Nathan Smith during his DrupalCon talk on jQuery.

  • Patrick B.

    I am definitely interested in hearing about GWT.

    March 8, 2011

  • Andy K.

    I'd be happy to talk about GWT (Google Web Toolkit). It's a Javascript framework, but with a Java API. I would just talk high level about what it does that is cool and unique and why you should care.

    I will need to leave the meeting early, so would need to present early.

    March 8, 2011

  • Karl S.

    I'd be happy to talk about LABjs. I've used it quite a bit.

    March 2, 2011

  • Dave B.

    Is anyone qualified to talk about RequireJS/labjs/$script.js, CommonJS (maybe at a different meetup with NodeJS), modernizr, jslint/jshint, jsunit/qunit/jasmine, JavaScriptMVC, or CoffeeScript? I'd like to hear more about any of those. Otherwise I can give a high-level overview, letting people know that they exist and what they might be good for.

    @Don, Spry is just another client-side JS framework. It just happened to be out by Adobe. It's completely independent from Adobe AIR.

    Whoops, comment failed to recognize a newline. Karl, in no way did I mean to tie my first sentence above with my second (supposed to have been a new paragraph). Those are entirely separate statements.

    March 2, 2011

  • Zach

    I'm very interested in the "why" on these talks and not so interested in learning basic syntax or examples for showing/hiding a div. While Karl is probably the most qualified to talk on jQuery, there are some code organization and JS patterns that we've found to work extremely well with jQuery (they worked well with Prototype first, but jQuery simplified it even more). I'd be happy to share a few of those and how they apply to building applications opposed to web-sites.

    March 2, 2011

  • Don U.

    Nice, Ryan
    then you have seen this?
    http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/home.html
    So then the application is runtime dependent?

    March 2, 2011

  • Don U.

    Can someone write a unit test that would measure delivery/load performance comparison between a CDN and local hosting of js libs?

    March 2, 2011

  • Don U.

    This also should help
    http://jqueryvsmootools.com/
    For a discussion to be useful a comparative analysis should be
    drafted so that the differences are apparent. Some slides perhaps a take a way reference would be helpful. I'm sure the developers of these libs would contribute. We just need to get a hold of them.

    Adobe Air is not a js lib it is a runtime

  • Ben R.

    I think JQuery and the other "normal" frameworks are very similar to each other. I would like to see Air and GWT included to show a wider view of what is available in the Javascript world.

    March 2, 2011

  • Ross H.

    I just added a new meetup idea for Mobile Development, should we move the adobe air talk to that meetup? I think air's mobile implications are probably more attractive to most than building desktop apps with it.

    Otherwise I think it is relevant and could be lumped into this JS framework talk.

    March 2, 2011

  • Ross H.

    We are looking for non jQuery presenters, anyone interested?

    March 1, 2011

  • Ross H.

    I just added a poll about JS frameworks, let me know if you think there are more that should be added to the poll. Check it out, thanks.

    February 12, 2011

  • Ross H.

    That would be great Karl. You should get your buddy Jonathan Chaffer to come out too. I tried to get him to come out to the last meetup.

    February 12, 2011

  • Karl S.

    I could talk about jQuery a bit, too. Or something else.

    2 · February 12, 2011

  • Roger R.

    Node.js isn't quite a js framework. It might deserve a meetup of its own. I know jQuery quite well and could talk about it. I don't know other frameworks in enough depth to do a good comparaison.
