After a couple month hiatus we're back with two great talks.

First, Rob Larsen (@robreact (!/robreact) ( will be presenting:
jQuery: Two New Features That Really Matter

Rob Larsen, Senior Specialist at Sapient Global
Markets and co-author of Professional jQuery (WROX), will walk through two new jQuery features released in the past year that will change, for the better, the way you work with the wildly popular JavaScript library. Learning to embrace the new Deferred object and the new Event API will make your code more maintainable, easier to read and faster for your users.

Next, Jeff Boulay (@jeffboulay (!/jeffboulay) ( will be presenting:
A Pragmatic Approach to Responsive Web Design

Jeff will walk through some of the nitty-gritty details of actually implementing a responsive design, including cross-browser support, responsive images, and polyfills.

The schedule for the evening will be:

7:00: Pizza & Socializing
7:20: Rob's Talk
8:00: 10 Minute Break + Announcements
8:10 Jeff's Talk
