    I liked the presentations. And the presenters made themselves available to answer questions. And I learned that knowing Javascript/jQuery is a perfectly valid reason to look fo tools that obviate the need to program in Javascript/jquery. Just because you can do something manually doesn't mean you have to do it :)

    I meant to share these at the meeting:
    Coupon code mr1vh8q for <jsmag> July 2012
    Coupon code 8a4fgm0 for <jsmag> June 2012.
    I have articles in these issues and also April and May. It is [only] basic JavaScript, but perhaps these or the other articles will be worthwhile.

    brutal audio/video; all I can say is that those who sat in the first three rows (hence could see and hear something) seemed very impressed!

    Loved the Tiggzi product! And Max, the presenter, gave a clear & logical demo.

    A lot of people showed up to enjoy pizza and an HTML5/Java presentation. I thought Tiggzi did a great job but felt that he sped through his demo as though we were already intimately familiar with his program. I don't fault the presenter since he was trying to demo a cool outcome, which he did in spades. Instead, I would alert the program design team. They could really use a much clearer terminology for each required step. JMHO. AppMobi was speaking gaming to a web page crowd. He knew it from the out start and did his best to keep us interested. I would recommend that he prepare three types of demos. One for gamers, one for wanna be gammers and one for last night's crowd. What would have captured everyone's attention, I believe, would have been the creation/explanation of a popular game feature. Ever wonder how this game was created? etc...
