6:00 - 7:00 Networking and Light Dinner (Thanks SurveyMonkey)

7:00 - 7:15 Announcements

7:15 - 8:30 Talk by Adrian Adkison

8:30 - 8:45 Q&A


PhantomJS has been a great solution for a few of my recent tasks, namely creating web page PDFs and testing JS.  In this talk Adrian Adkison wants to review the basics of this tool (installation and quick api review) and dive into some code examples so people can immediately incorporate this too into their work flow.

Adrian Adkison is a software engineer at SurveyMonkey and spends most of his time wrangling html, css, and javascript for SurveyMonkey's upcoming Analyze Beta.  Adrian foresaw the collapse in the housing market and made a strategic career switch from finance to software engineering in 2007.  That's not entirely true.  He did make the career switch but did it mostly so he could wear sandals to work.
