    @Per Rovegård:
    Could we get a link to your AngularJS slides?
    I really liked your presentation!
    Fast-paced and to-the-point :)

      I will try to get his ppt and email all resources in one email to avoid "spamming".

    And re. my "objection" to tests-as-specifications...

    After a little thinking... no, actually it's not whether specifications are formal or not.
    It might be natural language specification, too.

    Very simple case: Say, you want to SPECIFY the inc(x) function something like:
    "A method that takes an integer and returns the next higher integer"
    You might also add that: "Valid arguments are integers in the range MIN_INT to MAX_INT" or similar.
    I think this is a pretty COMPLETE specification(?), even if NOT formal.

    But with TDD, perhaps, you say:
    assertEquals(-4, inc(-5));
    assertEquals(1, inc(0));
    assertEquals(6, inc(5)); Now, even if your tests all pass AND you have 100% coverage there are actually Zillions of different functions that pass these tests, and still are NOT what you intended to specify --- aka "BUGGY" :)
    And this is a only for an EXTREMELY simple example, which is never the case in real life...

    Is this only academic issue? Not so sure :)

    Will there be any live stream off todays meetup?

    I'm way down on the waitinglist, hope you lucky bastards who are attending will have a great evening :)

  • Jamie R.

    I cant attend, so there is a spot left open for someone else!

  • Fabrice M.

    Not sure I'll attend since it's already full. Front-end/UX developers interested in joining our founding team, have a look at

    Time for everyone currently on the waiting list to double check their availability on Wednesday. If you need to give up your place, better to do it beforehand, that way we'll end up with less last minute replacements who can't show up.

    I really really want to go to this meetup. The angular talk is well needed.

    This group is rather popular. Yesterday I kept refreshing the page at the time of openning. it was unbelievable, the whole event was booked between two refreshes and I ended up in the waiting list. It's the second time this happens to me. Two solutions came to my mind: 1. Host the events in bigger venues so that more people can join. 2. Charge a small amount of money (sell tickets), so that only serious people join the event. Anyone?

      For solving the networking issue you could have multiple venues, where one is the live venue and the others simply show the stream on a large screen.
      For a more advanced version you could have each talk during the evening at a different venue. Distributed talks, ftw!

      August 30, 2013

    • Martin F.

      You could also have multiple venues with different speakers at the same time to spread out the group.

      August 30, 2013

  • Markus U.

    Isn't it better to just give a date, or week even, when the tickets are released and not a specific time? That way the participants would be a bit more mixed...

    2 · August 29, 2013

    • Per F.

      That's a terrible idea! That means that only people who constantly check their inboxes (or checks it at the right moment by chance) will sign up. Announcing the release in advance gives everyone equal opportunity to get a ticket.

      August 30, 2013

    • Martin F.

      Why not just randomly hand out tickets to group members. I'm only semi-kidding.

    Ok, so do anyone have any ideas on live streaming? How do we do this best? :)

    3 · August 29, 2013

  • Fredrik B.

    wow.. seriously, people are using scripts now :(

    4 · August 29, 2013

    • Geries H.

      that could be nice thing to explore.. how to counter the scripts ;)

    omg what a banana party! .. not one girl :/

    August 29, 2013

  • Jamie R.

    phantomjs - good idea!
    Maybe these talks could be streamed (or recorded).

    sick how quick they went :/

    August 29, 2013

  • Oivvio P.

    Hell that went fast. Do you guys have phantomjs set up to reload and press RSVP?

    August 29, 2013

  • Johan R.

    Less than 5 second until full...

    3 · August 29, 2013

  • Stefan O.

    15 secs this time :)

  • Amir Hossein R.

    SOrry for asking this, it's my first time. When you say tickets, how can I get them? I know it gets open at 15 but just wanted to be prepared for what's coming. :)

    August 29, 2013

    • Clara A.

      At 15 sharp you refresh this page and there will be a button up in the right top corner (where it says "RSVP closed now") that you can click to "attend" and thereby get a "ticket".

  • Amir Hossein R.

    Is it alright to join as a non-swedish speaking javascript enthusiast?

    July 15, 2013

    • Bence V.

      Of course! :) We have several members who don't know Swedish, so the talks usually are in English.
