We're going to have 2 speakers today!

First, one of our newer local members Dylan Piercey (https://github.com/DylanPiercey) is going to talk about the benefits of isomorphic/universal JavaScript and how to use it for any size app.

He'll tell us about:

• What Isomorphic JavaScript even is

• Server first applications

• What progressive enhancement is

• Isomorphic vs Universal JS

• How this applies to SEO

Dylan is also going to show us some tools you can utilize in order to take advantage of universal JavaScript.


Our second speaker is a our favourite ex-pat David Luecke (https://twitter.com/daffl). In from Vancouver, he's going to show us how DoneJS (http://donejs.com), the successor to JavaScriptMVC, can be used to build real-time high-performance web, desktop and mobile applications.

In this talk we'll build a fast, real-time single page application with DoneJS and he'll talk about their approach to:

• Server side rendering/Isomorphic JS

• Progressively loading optimized bundles

• Use of content delivery networks (CDNs)

• Desktop and mobile application builds

As always, we'll be live streaming (https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/116072826435506981419/events/c1ib9p5bh7ordbln4mip5v1v0b4) this meetup, code will be up on github and slides will be online.
