November Meetup: Recap, News, & Links, oh my!

From: Derek G.

Thanks for a great meetup last night. ?It was a lot of fun. ?The feedback from our sponsors (CoLoft & YDN) was very positive, and they're really excited to continue working with us and further building out the community.

We had a few members discussing more localized meetups, so if you are one of those far flung individuals that would prefer a meetup closer to your area, absolutely let me know and I'll do what I can to promote it. ?SoCal is such a massive geographic, populated area, I'm sure we could have 10 different groups with little overlap, as evidenced by the vastly different crowds at the SM vs Pasadena meetups. ?Even if you don't want to organize a full event, just give me a date & place for a Beer.js (happy hour), and I'll throw it on the calendar.

For December, at a minimum we'll definitely do a Beer.js. ?If anyone has something they'd like to present, ping me and if we get enough we'll put together a presentation event.

For January/February, my pitch to non-LA based presenters is to come down and present at Code Camp over the weekend, then SoCal.js on Monday. ?So depending on when they announce the Code Camp date, we'll try to schedule alongside it.

Andrew Kurinnyi was nice enough to video record the talks last night, so if the audio turns out ok, we'll post them online and I'll send out the links.

And finally, the link list of (almost) everything mentioned last night:

Stoyan's Slides


Stoyan's twitter

Luke's twitter

SoCal.js twitter (Follow! Follow! Follow!)

YUI Theater - Luke mentioned this, it's an awesome video resource for all things YUI, JavaScript, performance, and front-end. ?All free! ?There should be a few dozen more videos added in the next few weeks for all the talks at last week's YUIConf.

Stoyan's "JavaScript Patterns" book

If you enjoyed the section of Stoyan's talk on the DOM, check out his contributing chapter on DOM Scripting in NCZ's "High Performance JavaScript". (<--- awesome book!)?

YUI3 Library

SimpleYUI - A super-easy way to get started with YUI3

Gist of my super magical Node.js/YQL winner picker. ?Hey, don't criticize the sloppy code, it was written in 15 minutes (14 of which were spent dealing with ascii unicorns).
The Node.js "Cornify" module I mentioned as well,?https://github.com/drgath/cornify/

SoCal Code Camp

Node.js Camp in San Fran

PromoteJS
And search for the #promotejs hashtag on Twitter for the latest in ways you can help out

Yahoo has a number of JS-centric positions available at our Santa Monica office, check 'em out and let me know if you are interested in applying

Whew! I think that's it.

Thanks again. ?See you soon.

- Derek
