    Question for the "helpathon". What technology stack to use for a user/admin GUI for managing a REST web service API? In addition to standard stuff like user management, there are parts that allow editing code snippets. The data for the GUI will be from the REST service too. Some components that I have so far identified as possibly useful are Bootstrap, Dojo Toolkit, Liferay, Backbone, CorMVC, ACE Editor, Cloud9 IDE, WIODE - which as you can tell have overlapping functionality.

    Hopefully this will be of interest to others too. See you tonight.

    These things are never pointless. Just gives you more of a reason to meet someone and work with them.

    I'm a beginner and my laptop is still in the university tech shop, would it be pointless to just come and listen?

    Am I on the right track to learning about blu-ray by attending this meeting? I don't want to interrupt a good session.

    Yes, bring a laptop. Also, I'd recommend codeschool.com

    I am truly a newbie! I don't know any codec but I am interested in blu-ray & I needed some inspiration to take courses, and what better way than to sit amongst a knowledgeable group. I have a few questions so feel free to introduce yourself and hopefully introduce me to the blu-ray language!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
