(the post summer talk/drink/party meet up rocket potato)

Summer has been pretty great; not just (mostly) the weather, but our hack events, evening meetups and p.a.r.t.ies have been all been great.

This meetup is going to be great, and also things after that too.

Everything is great.

We've got three great talks lined up for September, come along to hear about…

📢  Digital Manuscript Toolkit – the journey so far – Monica Messaggi Kaya  

[cancelled] Unfortunately Monica is unable to attend JSOxford tonight; she'll be giving this talk at a later date.

An introduction to International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) and its use on the Digital Manuscript Toolkit (DMT) - where Monica is working specifically on a JavaScript client to edit manuscripts online (via browser).

📢  Visualising runkeeper data with html5 apis – Ben Foxall

Ben will take us through some features of the web platform that allow us to retreive, process, and visualise data he's collected runkeeper. We'll cover stuff like service workers, indexeddb, canvas, d3, webgl.

📢  Making the web more better – Joe Reeve

Joe works at SquaredUp(.com) using Ractive to build dashboards and improve system administrator's workflows, and he's going to be showing us how we can use Ractive to fix the way we web.

📢  Unfolding the Future of Javascript – Henry Blyth

Henry will have 4 minutes and 25 seconds to tell us some things about Javascript. 

📢  The what, why and how of ClojureScript – Ivan Bokii

Ivan will tell us how ClojureScript is different from other, more conventional, programming languages and what concepts and features this modern version of LISP has that can help you as a front-end developer to do your job better.

We've got some time for micro-pitches after the talks, so if you've got a job, project or interesting thing to share with the group that's your chance.

We'll have drinks and snacks (kindly provided by Haybrook) and plenty of people with interesting ideas, so come early and stay late! 

If you can stick around later, you should.  We'll be heading to the Star for some drinks and chat after the meetup.  We'll hopefully end up there by 9.30.

    Grand meetup, one of the best yet! I'm even messing about with ClojureScript now... in vim! ^_^

    Unfortunately Monica is unwell and can't make it along tonight (though she's up for giving her talk at a later event). Get well soon Monica.

    Though, we've lined up two more talks tonight; so you should definitely still come along.

    Henry Blyth will be telling us about "Unfolding the future of Javascript" and I'll be giving a talk about "Visualising runkeeper data with html5 apis". Details of both are up on the meetup description.

    Hi everyone, we've figured out how to fit another 5 people in so anyone who was on the waiting list over the weekend should now have a spot.

    If you're not able to make it please update your RSVP so someone else can take your place. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday, hopefully without the rain.

    When will we get a readable title for this meeting, instead of a series of icons?

    This sounds very great! Much wow!

    (Yeah, I noticed Jonatan's mention of Dogescript in his intro and now I'll be speaking in very wow style all day, much sadness.)
