jQuery London (July Meetup)

Hi guys, Sorry for the late/short notice again.

We're having our second jQuery London meetup on July 4th at the same place: Scott Room, The Guardian (Kings Place)

 

The schedule for this meetup is as follows:

6pm: Meet & Greet.

 

6:15pm: Ross Bruniges

Intro to talk: jQuery has been Ross' JS library of choice for years now and in that time it's been used to make dynamic interfaces for banks, radio stations, magazines and now at Mozilla. In that time he has seen great usage of it and some not so great. He is hoping to condense his years experience into about 40 minutes and provide a large number of practical tips you can use straight away and get you thinking on how you use it on your projects.

 

6:55pm: short 5 minute break

 

7pm: Addy Osmani

Intro to talk: Performance optimization is a crucial aspect of building ‘snappy’ client-side applications and something which all developers using jQuery should bear in mind. In this talk, we're going to take a look at some of the best practices, tips and tricks for improving the performance of your jQuery code in 2011 with some quick wins and a few new surprises along the way.

 

7:30ish: Finish & maybe head off to nearby pub?

 

P.S. Beer will be provided in courtesy of The Guardian. The attendee limit is 100.

    I thought the meeting was excellent, both speakers were experts in JS and I have learned stuff that I did not know before.

    I could only stay for the presentation by Ross, giving out some good common sense tips for JS and jQuery. I enjoyed his presentation a lot and only wish I could have only stayed longer.

    Really good eye opener. I'm a backend developer and rarely do any JS dev myself, but jQuery is baked into my web framework of choice (Lift) so it's good to know what's going on.

    @oscar the number of confirmed attendees is already higher than 108! Is that 100 limit for the seating area or a door entry limit? I attended a meeting for django previously at the guardian and the room took more than 100.

    Hi, is this event now full or open for more signups? Don't want to turn up only to be turned away :-) Would ideally bring a party of 4.

    Quick update: If you'd like to track the event via Lanyrd, you can now also do that here: http://lanyrd.com/2011/london-j...­. If you've already registered on meetup.com you'll be allowed into the event, but this is just for anyone that wants to keep a track of the talks they attend.

    @Oscar, Although I know it needs lots of paintwork, it might be a good timing. Certainly, sign me up.

    I second David Nattris' comment " <q>...don't even start until 8pm!</q>

    It would be pretty good if we can start later as I normally don't finish work until 6pm and I'm contracting in Surrey at the moment.

    I have integrated jQuery into my Toolkit and it solves many problems when building rich web applications. Demos: http://agiletoolkit.org/intro/j...­ - I would love to talk with anyone who's interested in my approach.

    OK - I didn't say/think it was run by London AJAX? I just wrote to Dylan because he e-mailed us about it and is listed as the organiser of this group.

    How come jQuery London does not have its own meetup group?

    Peeks? I've never noticed that many devs wanting to leave an event by 8pm, but even so, you've set up your schedule to finish at 7:30pm, not 8. I run PHP London every month and we don't even start until 8pm!

    Recording the talks would be great, thanks.

    June 29, 2011

  • Dave N.

    Hi Dylan, I can't make this one (very early start for a meet-up). Will the talks be recorded at all?

    Yep. All jQuery London events are free to attend.
