But how do I test, really? by Rhett Lowe

Since I started this quest for testing I have been writing down all the questions I had in my head and mapping all my confusion and revelations. I want to explain how to test functionally in modern day JS and a little on AngularJS. I expect this to speak to the part of the community that isn't as familiar with testing in JS. The largest part will revolve around my questions and how I answered them. For example, I was perplexed by Karma/Testacular. The fact that, if I wanted to test, I would have to learn Node, Karma, Jasmine, and then finally learn the angular specific stuff was daunting, but I think I can break it down and help jump-start people. I want to make them feel comfortable and ready to pick it all up. It will have some AngularJS content but mainly focus on JS in as a whole. 

"Smooth" with ngAnimate by Danniel Condez

With great power comes great responsibility. We have seen how powerful AngularJS can be in terms of routing, hiding and showing stuff, displaying and filtering lists etc... But sometimes, "INSTANT" page updates diminish User Experience instead of improving them. These happens when we don't properly give our page proper transitions which tells our users what's happening with our page.

    Hey all,
    Sorry I had to rush out at the end. Everything ended well with my car. Turns out it was the battery acting really oddly. Thank you, Brent, for your great offer to help me home!

    Here are the slides from my presentation last night, "But how do I test, really?!?!" I recommend reading it via HTML to see the speaker notes. Or if you have node you can run it locally and press 's' to see the notes.

    Also, if you asked for my email last night, contact me on meetups and I will give you the email. :D

    Thanks again to Evite for hosting us and for the grub. That was some darn good pizza.

    Here's a link to the Lightning talk slides on $resource and $http:

    Here is the link to the demo app: Grab the version that is tagged as 0.3 if you want highly commented code and demos of how to use $resource and $http in different ways.

    Thanks again for letting me share.

    Hi all, I'm the host for the event tonight, and wanted to mention a couple things you might run into if you are coming this evening: 1: Parking -- There are a limited number of parking spots inside the building, the lot entrance is on the east side of the building. The later you arrive, the emptier the lot will be and the easier it will be to park. Please pull down to P3 or P4 if you are parking here. Otherwise, should be plenty of street parking in the neighborhood or valet across the street.

    2: Meeting room -- The talks will be held in the Screening Room, on the 1st floor, just off the lobby. There are 60 or so seats, so if we get many more people than that, it may be standing room only.

    3: Food -- we are providing pizza and beer and soda.

    Hey all, following up on the last meetup lightning talk... what would yall like to have a lightning talk cover? I'm thinking about one of these topics: services and filters, testing, or directives. Cast your vote here:
