Brian Noguchi of Shortrr will present about MongoDB and Node.js.
Adam from 10gen will be there with some Mongo swag. 10gen is hosting a JS/Mongo webinar on July 22, if you'd like some background.
Miško Hevery will present on Angular.js:
Angular is what HTML would have been, if it was designed for web-apps. Web-apps are afterthought in HTML and it shows. What angular brings to the table is:
- Opinionated structure on how a CRUD application should be built.
- Impressive Data Binding story, where the model is the single source of the truth.
- Embrace HTML and turns it into declarative DSL which gives the developer the ability to make up one's own HTML tags/attributes
- Amazing testability story, both on unit-tests and end-to-end tests
Ambert Ho will prsent on building realtime, single page apps using Backbone.js and Node.js
