    Thanks to all for the great meetup. It was my first time there (or at any meetup), so I had a good time getting to know some of you. See you at the next one!

    The presenters did a great job covering a lot of ground in just 15 minutes each.

    I liked all the talks today evening. Meteor one was not very engaging compared to other talks, but I can understand as it was presented on the fly. Otherwise pretty good learning experience.

      Great job man. I was considering adopting Angular but seeing Rivets does pretty much everything I want I think I'll take a closer look. Good work.

    Presenters pulled out all the stops. Massive data dump greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Thanks for sharing while barely taking a breath!

    Not sure if we'll get the chance to meet everyone but if your looking for a full time JS gig. We're hiring. Tap me on the shoulder ( blue checkered shirt ) or send me a message anytime.

    This is my first time coming to the meetup. If this is where it's normally held (Enova @ 200 Jackson), does anyone have a recommendation for parking?

    April 22, 2014

    • Camilo G.

      I've had good luck with parking on Wells, but the parking costs about $15. Much better to bus it.

      April 22, 2014

    • Aaron J.

      Thanks Pallavi and Camilo. I ended up parking on Franklin, but I'll check out SpotHero and Wells next time.

  • Camilo G.

    I know it's last minute, but I can't go. Really bummed. Hope you post a few links.

    Regretfully, I will not be able to attend. I have a conflict.

  • Peter P.

    Argh! I really wish I could go to this.

  • Pallavi A.

    There are still a couple spots available if you RSVP via Chicago Meteor: http://www.meetup.com/Meteor-Chicago/events/176986252/

  • Pallavi A.

    We have an opening for ReactJS (from Facebook) due to a last minute cancellation. If anyone would like to present for 10-15 minutes on a project or demo you've built, please contact us.

    April 21, 2014

    • Conrad B.

      Hi, I can present a demo in ReactJS and another in Om (a technology built on top of reactjs)
