Exchange.js: Edmonton's JavaScript meetup

Exchange.js is an open community of local developers and designers, who meet monthly to discuss a wide range of topics within the JavaScript ecosystem.

Talks range from beginner to advanced and include the full stack of popular JavaScript technologies from jQuery to CoffeeScript to Node.js. It is also common to hear topics covering wider Web-technology trends and evolving standards.

The format can change month-to-month, but generally includes industry news and community announcements, followed by two or three 5-15 minute talks. Often a run to the pub or coffee shop follows for those wishing to stay out later.

    Lots of excellent conversation, good to run into some familiar faces and engage a little deeper into conversation.

    Hi All, sorry but I must bow out last minute. Was really looking forward to dig in, will be there next time!

    I haven't been able to find a lineup for this month, so here's the proposal for tonight:

    "Deployment: how do you do it?" A round table on Dev Ops / AWS / Heroku / Cloudfoundary / etc. How do you store your static assets versus dynamic. Caching. Etc.

    This would be an informal night of "what are you using for your app, how do you organize your assets and why?"

    I also am prepared to discuss an intro to Grunt and how to build a sample task, which can aid in some static asset generation, etc.

    Alternatively I can discuss how we use Chef for server management at Redman Tech as part of our devops roundtable.

    Work for those coming out tonight?

      It also included.... As always we'll have pizza and refreshments, care of Redman Tech.

      See you tonight, 6:30pm at Startup Edmonton!

      Other notes:

      - We're co-sponsoring an upcoming event: The Startup Edmonton Hackathon, September 26-27
      - I already have two speakers lined up for November and would like to lock in one or two more in the next few days so we can announce the topics a week or two in advance . Perhaps one more talk and a shorter demo?
      - This month I launched a new, simpler version of http://www.exchangejs...­

      Sorry Sean I didn't see any of your meetup discussion. But I can offer "iteration in javascript" for this evening or for November.

    Will try. Timing is a little tricky with the new baby. Will there be a hangout?

      I'll do my best to set it up next week, if not November for sure :)

    Looking to lock down talks for next week's meetup. Please get in touch if interested or pass along the request :)

    I also just put live a new - it no longer features monthly updates as it now helps directs you to the event pages (such as this one.)
