SF JS Meetup #2 (hosted by SlideShare)

  • June 5, 2008 · 7:00 PM
  • SlideShare, Inc.

The meeting will be an informal session of food, conversation, and a few presentations. This will be a lot like the last meetup, and since Jonathan from SlideShare has graciously offered to host, we will have more space, more food, and beer. It should be fun! The simple agenda: 7:00-7:30 : food, individual discussion, networking, hanging out 7:30-8:30 : presentations on JS topics, questions, discussion 8:30-9:00 : impromptu lightning talks if anyone is interested 9:00-?? : follow-up with speakers, more conversation, and whatever We hope to see you there!!

    hey guys thanks for coming last night. i hope you all had fun. anyway, i am in the process of getting the talks on SlideShare and will link you as they come in.

    things to do better next time:

    1) be 100% strict on 10 minutes
    2) make comments quicker and cut it off after 2-3 per talk
    3) smooth out the projector issues (all talks on a USB key or on SlideShare in case something happens)
    4) allow for more followup networking at the end.

    thanks for all your feedback everyone! take care.

    It was great fun but the 10 minute limit should be enforced more forcefully - there were[masked] minute talks that made things pretty painful.

    Really good meetup. A few bits of feedback:

    1) keep the presentation to 10 min
    2) what was up with music? nice between presentations but somewhat distracting during
    3) stop that guy who always shows up to these type of events from grandstanding. you know... the big african american dude with the beard. the who gave pmarca advice on outsourcing at startup school.

    prolly can't do anything about the last one ;)

    I really enjoyed the talks. My notes on the first 4 speakers are posted at: http://www.ultrasaurus.com/­

    Unfortunately I had to leave early ... anyone have notes on the last speakers? Also, I didn't get links or full names for Alex and Nick's talks -- can someone post those?

    Many thanks to the organizers and slideshare for hosting!

    A couple good talks and a few interesting people. There are always the people who don't know when to stop asking questions or start telling the presenters how to do their jobs, but I guess you have to expect that. Overall pretty decent.

    It was great. I just wish it was more BART accessable.

    Apparently parking around the area (street) is very manageable at night. I just checked on that via our hosts.

    I had to miss the last one but I'm excited for this one.

    This is really close to caltrain and i will check on the parking situation, but i think it should be much better than last time.

    You can also take the BART to Montgomery and catch the 45 Stockton in Union Square right over to within a few blocks of there.

    Do we know what the parking situation is like around this office? It's pretty far from public transit.
