jQuery 202 and web components

We had a great start into the year so lets keep it up and learn something new in March as well.

This years meetups will be split into two parts. The first hour will be about a beginner focussed topic and in the second part we will talk about a more advanced related topic. This time:

1) jQuery 202

• Un-spaghetti and modularize your code

• Advanced selectors and DOM traversal

• Making your code faster

• Writing your own plugins

2) Web components - the future of web development

• Introduction to web components and Polymer

• Data driven views (or why direct DOM manipulation will be a thing of the past)

• Build web component style applications now with CanJS

We will live-stream both sessions on our Google+ account.

Slides can be found at here

    I really like the new format. Found it a lot easier to understand and I was able to get the high level overview of the different features that David was trying to highlight. Looking forward to the NodeJS talk in April!

      I'm not entirely sure but I think we need to invite people to join the hangout so that even the remote viewers can ask questions.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
