MEANies everywhere, are you,
• tired of callback hell?
• ready for easier testing of your MEAN Stack apps?
• ready for improved error messages, as was TJ (creator of Express)?
• looking for an enhanced approach to your Express layer?
• looking for a straightforward approach for all of this?
Then, look no further than FRHTTP (https://github.com/ayasin/frhttp)!
Created by Amir Yasin of DataTensor (http://datatensor.com/), FRHTTP utilizes functional reactive programming (FRP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Functional_reactive_programming)) techniques to substantially improve MEAN Stack development without requiring us to bear the brunt of dealing with the nuances & abstract concepts of FRP, all-the-while still benefitting from FRP! So, although you can go to the FRP link above to learn about it, please don't fret if you find it too abstract and dry. This is part of where FRHTTP shines; it shields us from having to be FRP experts.
Curiosity piqued?! :-) Good! This month, Amir will introduce us to FRHTTP & discuss his design philosophy & motivations for it.
Also, I am happy to say that the good folks at MakerSquare (http://www.makersquare.com/) will sponsor us with the venue in downtown Austin! Please see location herein.
(2/23/2015): snacks & drinks will be provided by Collaborare Dot Net LLC! I am currently working on food/drinks sponsorship!
