It'll be pretty informal - a brief presentation/discussion followed by small-group hack sessions or whatever makes sense.

Bring your laptop if possible!

Directions: Enter below the 4-story-tall EASTWORKS sign (as if going to the Apollo Grille), and take stairs or elevator to 3rd floor. MRW Connected is 10 steps down the hall on your right (across from the Eastworks office).

    Interesting. Concensus was java script has become a full featured language and can work on client and server side. Computer response time was brought up and concenus was gogle chrome was the fastest browser. I have since tried and found it exhilaratingly fast. Diverse group of programmers at meeting. Surprsing how varied the programming experiences can be: many sub categories brought up which were new to me. Went from gaming to working with google maps, to fox pro to vb, python, php, c, c++, c# . And those are the topics i recognized. It might help if in future if when talking about a given language- a little history, its purpose and the expereince the person talknig about it has with it. These were often touched up, but weren't always easy to follow. For example google maps - how does one beging to code with them , whats the approach.

    That would be great. I vote both. I was sorry to miss this yesterday. (I saw that I was waitlisted and made other plans.)

    Next one is May 3 at 7pm... I just booked the room behind Woodstar Cafe. Should be plenty of room there... which we'll need if we actually TRY to get the word out :)

    If there's demand, we could possibly do another workshop for 10-20 people at MRW on or around April 19.

    Many interesting topics were suggested. I am looking forward to the future Javascript meetups.

    FOLLOWUP: Great turnout, about 15 people, all developers. Did a Q&A to see what people are interested in, then broke into 3 groups for the second half.

    Some future topics: HTML5 features (Canvas, SVG, Offline apps, client-side storage, File API, Web Sockets...), Mobile, Security, Node.js (server-side JS), JQuery, JQuery-UI, JQuery alternatives, Backbone, CoffeeScript, useful tools & libraries...

    We could do show & tell, hacking contests, etc.

    Wow, looks like it's gonna be a full house! If 15-20 people show up this time, we'll definitely move to a larger venue next time.

    BTW, this will be a once- or twice-monthly thing. P.S. spread the word! :)

    Let's do this next Thursday (4/5) at 7pm, if 5-10 people can make it. It'll be pretty informal.

    Please email me at [masked] if you have any questions or suggestions.

    Agree with earlier comments - Would love some to hear about JQuery. I've been trying to solidify my JQuery skills lately.

    I can volunteer to do some mentoring, if necessary. I'm a Ruby guy that has a lot of experience with jQuery and HTML5. I'm interested to hear more stuff about CoffeeScript. I should know more about it, but I haven't taken the time.

    I guess this is the presentation I volunteered for :)
    I could talk about the jquery/dom/ajax stuff, html5, coffeescript, useful tools/libraries, debugging, or just getting started...

    This could be geared toward developers or designers or both. Depends who signs up.

    It might be good to have multiple presenters/mentors so that we could break up into small groups or pairs, to cater to individual interests.

    This sounds great. Javascript has come a long way. I'd love a presentation on jQuery, AJAX, modifying DOM/CSS via Javascript and the like (all that probably could not be contained in a single night). I've been working in all of the above and might be able to contribute.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
