It's summer in Seattle! Probably. Which means it's time to get together with 50 - 100 of your closest and nerdiest friends to discuss the finer points of JavaScript. Übermind in Fremont is our gracious host and sponsor this time around, and we've changed up the format a bit.

6:00 - 6:30: Sign-in

We'll have a few iPads running a signin app that we will coerce you into using upon your arrival. It will let the whole room know you've arrived and what your areas of technical expertise and interest are. This is of course 100% JavaScript end to end and we'll briefly go over how it's built and have the source up on GitHub.

6:30 - 6:45Lightning Talks

Since JavaScript is a broad topic, we'll be doing shorter talks on a wider variety of subjects instead of longer more focused talks. To kick this off we'll be encouraging you to take the stage for a few minutes and share your latest project or idea. Come prepared! We will then have 3 back to back short talks from selected speakers.

6:45 - 7:15: Large-scale Backbone.js

Ryan Eastridge will talk about the pitfalls and lessons learned from building a large scale mobile Backbone application for the world's evilest corporation.

7:15 - 7:45: Connected Win8 Apps Using WinJS.XHR

Carter Rabasa will talk about building connected Windows 8 applications and will show you just how easy it is to integrate with your favorite REST APIs.

7:45 - 9:00: Huddle-up Time

Instead of doing Q&A after each talk we'll let you break into groups after the talks to get in depth answers to your questions directly from the speakers and have more time to socialize and collaborate with your fellow JavaScript sistren and brethren.

See you there! ~ Your Benevolent SeattleJS Overlords

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
