Greetings PHP users! There's a 3 evening JavaScript focused event coming up hosted at The Nerdery/Sierra Bravo. The topics include canvas, jQuery, and node.js.

November 9th: Evening of Canvas
7PM: "Introduction to Canvas" - Mike Frey @mikefrey

8PM: "Canvas Geek Time" - Zachary Johnson @zacharyjohnson
Cool or possibly useful things you can do with Canvas, both desktop
and mobile. Plus tips on optimizing Canvas performance, including
when not to use Canvas while still getting Canvas-like results.

November 10th: Evening of jQuery/jQuery UI
7PM: "jQuery UI and Plugins (along with brief intro to jQuery Mobile)" - Marc Grabanski @1marc
Introduction to jQuery UI and its underhyped CSS framework. See jQuery UI in action and get tips on how to chose good jQuery Plugins. Learn a bit about the upcoming jQuery Mobile framework as well.

8PM: "Building a Google Maps Mashup with jQuery" - Marc Grabanski @1marc
Build on top of Google Maps with jQuery. Learn some basic tips to work with other JavaScript libraries and demo various abilities of jQuery and jQuery UI. Some tips will include using Ajax, jQuery UI, building HTML, attaching data to DOM elements and using jQuery UI widgets. This is a hands on approach to demoing jQuery's strengths in working with the DOM and using jQuery UI's components.

November 11th: Evening of Node.JS
7PM: "An introduction to node.js" - Blago Dachev @blago
Server side JavaScript is finally taking off. After years of futile attempts we finally have a JavaScript host that not only allows for general purpose programming but also performs well. Better yet, you can apply those event handling skills you've been cultivating for years. Learn about node.js and why it's here to stay.

8PM: "Beyond propaganda: let's write a real-time app" - Blago Dachev @blago
Node.js excels in doing network and file IO, but don't take my word for it -- we'll take it for a spin. Let's implement a realtime web app that uses WebSockets to stream instantaneous updates.
