Discussion: Secrets of the Javascript Ninja, Parts III and IV

Last month we had a great discussion after reading the first eight chapters of Secrets of the Javascript Ninja by John Resig and Bear Bibeault. As we said last month, this book isn't for novices, but we did find that having a wide range of experience levels at the meeting helped make the discussion of what we all got out of reading the book very interesting.

This month we're asking everyone to read the last two parts of the book, chapters nine through fifteen, and come prepared to discuss what you learned and what you thought.

To help structure the meeting, this time we're asking if folks want to volunteer to lead a short discussion about a particular chapter. We already have volunteers already for chapters nine, thirteen, and fourteen, and it would be great if we could get at least one volunteer for each of the chapters. If you're game, please add a comment to the Meetup announcement letting us know what chapter you would like to focus on.

This month we're reading:

PART 3 NINJA TRAINING
9: Ninja alchemy: runtime code evaluation - Ken
10: With statements
11: Developing cross-browser strategies
12: Cutting through attributes, properties, and CSS

PART 4 MASTER TRAINING
13: Surviving events - Mark
14: Manipulating the DOM - Allen
15: CSS selector engines - Suyash

    I'll be in town and I'd love to stop by! Will likely come by later since I'll be coming from Mountain View. Not sure what time, exactly, but let's assume closer to 7:30-8pm.

    Hey guys, I'm forced to drop my spot a I'm stuck on a Caltrain that has stopped operating as a result of some altercation at 22nd street and would otherwise be pretty late. Sorry for the late notice and enjoy!

    Can't believe I'm dropping this one, parents are in town. I'm glad to open the space for someone else. Use the force wisely.
