Details

Polymer.js is the new Javascript MV* framework from Google. Polymer differentiates itself from existing frameworks by implementing the emerging Web Components standard (http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-components-intro-20130606/). This is a forward looking framework which values evolving the web over backward compatibility. Peter and Ryan have kicked the Polymer.js tires and will demonstrate several applications using Polymer and how to test those applications.

Peter Wong and Ryan Gerry have worked together at Follett Software Company, Aon Hewitt. Peter Wong loves traveling the globe with his wife and bending JavaScript to his will. In Peter's previous lives, he worked on WebSphere App Server class loaders, VR training for John Deere welders, and those annoying [+] feedback buttons you see on some websites. Peter currently works at Centro with Ryan Gerry. Ryan is a founding member of Software Craftsmanship McHenry County and has been programming on the web since the late 90's. He started with Perl and then moved to Java. Ryan currently programs in Ruby and JavaScript and tinkers with Scheme.
