    The Big Picture: All About Images in the Browser Micah Miller-Eshleman has a lot of experience with loading, rendering, and manipulating images in the browser. From loading strategies and rendering when dealing with slow connections to creating clever UI-components to use as wrappers, he'll be sharing tips and tricks you won't want to miss. Jon Washington will be our opening act with a short talk on Bonsai Radio, a "smart playlist" app for Spotify and Last.fm he created to allow streaming music fans to get under the hood of their own listening habits and organically grow/prune their playlists. We love code so much, we even have a Code of Conduct: http://pdxjs.com/code-of-conduct/

    3rd Annual Lightning Talk Night We’re doing Lightning Talks! They're great way to be introduced to && learn a little about a number of different subjects, but they're also an easy way to get yourself up to speak for your first technical talk if you haven’t before. We’ll hold everyone to exactly five minutes. You can prepare slides if you like, but 5 minutes goes fast so that's not at all required. Show off a project or maybe something cool you recently learned. Or if you’re considering giving a longer talk, you could write just a bit of that talk and give everyone a preview. Whatever you choose, now’s the best opportunity. No need to contact us in advance; we’ll have a sign-up sheet at the Meetup. We love code so much, we even have a Code of Conduct: http://pdxjs.com/code-of-conduct/

    Let’s start 2019 with a BAM! Jason Overby is one of the authors of BAM!, a serverless framework (written in JavaScript) designed to mitigate some of the challenges faced when working with Amazon Web Services (AWS). It is optimized for the deployment of AWS Lambda functions integrated with Amazon API Gateway endpoints. Did you know we have a code of conduct? Of course we do! We're super-official. http://pdxjs.com/code-of-conduct/

    Hey, thanks to an earlier Thanksgiving, we can get away with our regular 4th Wednesday Meetup without stepping on holiday plans, so let's do it! Note: this will be our last Meetup of the year. Benjamin Herson will present on Implicit Coercion in JavaScript. We'll take a deep dive into what it means for JavaScript to be dynamically typed, and what's really happening when your types don't match. Plus, we'll be bidding long-time co-organizer Jim Kogler a fond farewell. Don't miss his last Meetup with us (and maybe bring a tissue). If you're interested in becoming part of the co-organizing team, stick around because after the talk we'll have a quick pow-wow for the new team... Did you know we have a code of conduct? Well, we do! We're official like that. Check it out: http://pdxjs.com/code-of-conduct/
