Designing, Mocking, and Documenting your API in 15 minutes by Mike Stowe

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could design your entire API, mock it out for developers to try out, and even generate multiple all of your documentation and tooling from SDKs to API tests in 15 minutes? Doesn't seem possible - well with RAML and the open source tools surrounding it, you can do all that - and more!

Functional Reactive Programming by Pete Hodgson

The re-emergence of functional programming coincides nicely with the JavaScript renaissance. But where does the UI fit in? In this talk we'll cover the core concepts of Functional Reactive Programming while learning a practical application of them using Bacon.js. You'll learn how to build user interface components in a clear, declarative style by modeling both user interaction and back-end processing using one clean abstraction: streams of events.

15 Seconds of Fame

Have something you want to announce to the group? Near the end of the meetup, we'll have 15 seconds for you to make an announcement, request feedback, pose a question or *sigh* announce a job opening.
