JavaScript websites

For our next meetup we're having Nathan Smith school us about the pros and cons of JavaScript only websites. Nathan knows his stuff... Need proof? Nathan works as a Web Developer at Cramer Dev and runs the Iowa JavaScript Meetup group.

For those new to the group: you're welcome to bring food/drinks to the meetup, but we're not allowed to have alcohol at the Bioventures Center.

As usual, we can all meet at Gus's in Coralville for food and drink. Gus's is just convenient because it's pretty close and easy to find. However, if you have any other suggestions, spill the beans below.

      Sure - We'll be leaving from the Guaranty Bank building at the corner of 3rd St and 3rd Ave. We'll meet you just inside the doors on the 3rd St side, next to the mailboxes. Let me know with questions -[masked]

    Jerry asked, "Are we talking about a particular framework? backbone, angular, etc? It be helpful to me to make sure I understand the parts (routing, rendering, templates, etc), so then I can figure out how which framework fits the bill." This time Nathan is doing more of a wide overview of types of tools handy for front-end development, instead of on a particular framework. Maybe we could do something more specific next time or explore learning more from the JS group. If you have any questions about JS, bring those to the meetup! If he can't get to them during the presentation, perhaps he could after.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!
