Five minute lightning talks!

After a bit of a hiatus, the Boston jQuery Meetup is back, and we're going to be doing everyone's favorite... five minute lightning talks!

Like before, instead of one speaker getting up and talking for an hour, we want you, jQuery Boston Meetup members, to each get up and talk for five minutes. If you've been working on a really cool project, have a new jQuery plugin, figured our how to do something nobody else knows how to do, or just want to talk about JavaScript syntax for five minutes, tell us all about it!

Everyone is invited to talk, just RSVP with your talk idea if you're interested. Feel free to post and discuss five minute talk topics in the comments. We'll have 7 slots in which people can speak.

So far, we have these talks scheduled:

Pizza & beer should arrive at 6:15pm, and the talks will get underway at 6:30pm, so don't be late!

We're also looking for sponsors, so if you're interested please email darius [at] bocoup [dot] com.

    Here are the slides from my Throttle and Debounce talk, as well as some additional notes: http://hybernaut.github.com/blo...­ btw I used http://shama.github.com/jmpress...­ which was really easy and fun to use. I didn't modify the simple theme much beyond wiring up my slider samples and reaction GIFs.

    Fun format, and lots of interesting talks. I'm glad it started a little late, since it's difficult for me to get there too early.

    Some interesting topics, but not much jQuery.

    Some good presentations and some presentations were off topic. Overall, it was great to get exposure to some of the JS techniques, models, and tools that were showcased.

    Some really interesting talks happened last night, but I think it's important for the speakers to remember the "5 Minute" aspect.

    Talks were very interesting, especially Ben's Grunt overview. The meetup started a little later than scheduled so I had to leave during the final talk, but I really enjoyed the presentations.

    Tim did a great job at the end with bbb! I love watching people code live, usually because they crash and burn under pressure. But Tim nailed it with an awesome demo! Lots of great content lightning talks are an awesome format!

    Oof I'm second to top of waiting list, but I do have a topic I'd dig sharing and getting "how else could this be done" feedback on...

    Hi, I recently learned how to use debounce and throttle to improve some complex interactions, and I'd like to share and demonstrate my findings. [If you excluded topics that Cowboy already built plugins for, there'd be nothing left to talk about!]

    There are meters a couple of blocks away on Congress street and on side streets which I believe become free after 6pm

    I usually park at 381 Congress Street. It is $12 and really close. http://en.parkopedia.com/parkin...­

    Hi Ben, do you know if there is parking (free/cheap) at or around that place?
