    I never used Sencha/Ext, but after the talk I felt I've been using it for years!

    Ted Patrick delivered a great presentation showcasing Sencha's web and mobile frameworks. It was a good enough introduction to get many people interested and standing for over an hour in a space designed to fit half as many attendees and twice as warm (hot!!) as it should be. The CouchDB quick intro was good. The flip during the technical difficulties was good entertainment. A good meetup overall, but would've been better in an auditorium or presentation hall.

    Presenter was great and the contents excellent,
    but I wish we could seat and make notes.
    Was too hot and crowded in the room.

    It was too much crowded. I expected a meetup in an auditorium and not in a lounge. I think the presentation which Ted Patrick gave already had attended in one of the webinar sessions he gave few weeks back.
    I liked the framework though and it is really helpful to start working on HTML 5 and Sencha Touch.

    The talk was great. Sencha is an exciting piece of tech. Look forward to trying it out. In the future, when addressing a standing room only crowd, the speaker should table all questions until after the speech. I got frustrated standing there while others drilled Ted.

    Great presentation. I didn't know much about Sencha prior to attending so the info was pretty interesting.

    I went to the wrong location. Next time, could you post the actual address. The cross street. This is a UPS store, according to Google maps. I wasted 1/2 an hour trying to find this.

    On the corner of 7th avenue and 10th street

    March 5, 2012

  • Joseph S.

    Ah because it is 7th Ave South, not 7th Ave.

    March 5, 2012

  • Joseph S.
