$resource is a cool AJAX abstraction for retrieving data for display. But if you’re building a classic Create/Read/Update/Delete (CRUD) app, you’ve got bigger challenges: ad hoc user queries, change tracking, client-side validation, navigating object graphs, binding to dropdown lists, caching, stashing data in local storage. That’s what CRUD apps do … and CRUD is the bread-and-butter of the working developer.

Ward Bell will show us how BreezeJS ( combines with Angular to meet those challenges. He promises some good code and good fun.

Ward is V.P of Technology at IdeaBlade ( where they make Breeze and DevForce and help clients build business apps. He’s also an MVP with the Evil Empire so expect to see Visual Studio and .NET hovering in the background. Try not to sweat it: the evening is all about the Angular and the JavaScript.

Getting to the meetup by public transit (from Caltrain)


Look for the Shoreline Shuttle stop (1st bus stop, outer circle at entrance (,-122.259507&sspn=0.012357,0.015235&ie=UTF8&start=0&ll=37.394456,-122.077116&spn=0.001126,0.000995&t=h&z=20) -- see photo ( You'll be riding in the reverse direction from most commuters, but the shuttle itself goes in a loop. Take the shuttle to stop #7 (Google) and get off at the corner of Charleston and Huff. You'll be a 2 minute walk from the meetup.

Here are the relevant stop times:

Leaving MTV Caltrain




We'll have a shiny Google bus do a single run (about 8:15pm) to get everyone back to Caltrain in time to catch the 8:49pm Northbound train. The bus will leave from B46, right outside where the meetup is held.
