Whats going on in JavaScript Land? (20min)

We'll be talking about new/exciting things going on in the industry. If you have something you think we should mention, feel free to tweet us @DenverScript (https://twitter.com/denverscript).

Lighting Talk(10 - 15min):

Game development with Vue - Job Smith

We'll be talking about using Vue with Electron, Three.js, Socket.io, and Vuex to build native games with JavaScript.

Job is a front-end web-dev who like to make games to learn new technologies (and because its fun).

Longer Presentation(20 - 30min):

Stop trying to make `await` a thing - Dan Levy

JavaScript's `async`/`await` is, in retrospect, a mistake.

Despite being one of the most popular features recently added to EcmaScript, `async/await` comes at the cost of diverging from Functional Programming principles/values. (Immutability, Function building-blocks, State machines, Single purpose.)

Join Dan & friends as we rediscover the magic of the "callback queue."

After this talk, you'll be able to **identify key advantages of Promises** over other async patterns.

Dan Levy(https://www.danlevy.net/) is a Lead Instructor at Galvanize and contributor to multiple Open Source Software projects including NodeJS, Docker, Bluebird, Lodash, Rancher, Minio, Slate, and IxJS.

Socialize:

We'll have beer and pizza! We'll also allow people to announce any job opportunities they may have at that time so you can socialize with potential applicants.
