Next Meetup

NDev 24 - Optimism for the Web
Hey Folks! It's time again for another NDev meetup. We're going back to our roots and returning to Bitters this month! Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, this means we'll be meeting in the first week of April as opposed to the end of March... c'est la vie. This month we'll be graced with another talk from Elliott Barrett. Elliott is a developer at Radient360, and has given a few talks before on the JUCE audio development framework and Jonathan Blow's new programming language, JAI. Elliott is moving to Halifax soon and wanted to give one last talk, though he's welcome to return for another any time he's in town. In true Elliott Barrett fashion, this talk is shaping up to be a very opinionated rumination on the state and future of the web and web development technologies. It's sure to generate a lot of good discussion and probably just a little bit of catharsis. See below for the abstract! --------------------- Optimism for the Web A mixed-message, argument-baiting pep-talk in which we discuss web development libraries, techniques and philosophy, primarily using a lens that views it as harmful, misery-inducing, and/or counter-productive. There will be a mix of outlandish rhetoric and well-formed argument, backed by code examples and hand-waving alike. Finally, I'll have some nice things to say as well. The short presentation will be followed by open discussion/Q&A, with prizes for all who prove me wrong or change my mind. --------------------- Ooooh prizes! We hope to see you there! Mike & Scott.
