Atlanta JavaScript Meetup

I guess I'd never really thought about it. Would you consider JavaScript to be Open Source? Well, Firefox supports it and Firefox is Open Source. Most of the Javascript libraries out there (JQuery, Moo, Prototype, etc) are open source. Even the EXT JS library has a GPL v3 version. So I guess I'll have to say that it's open. Anyway, there's a new JavaScript meetup forming. At the moment they haven't decided on a place to meet, and their charter is a bit thin: Meet other local JavaScripters to share knowledge, to review the state of the art, or to dream up new applications. But follow along, sign up and be there! See: The Atlanta JavaScript Meetup Page.

    This month we have a talk on Sails.js from Travis Webball the way from Virginia as well as a talk on React Flux by our very own Andrew Smith.

    API-Driven Development with Sails.js For Fun and Profit

    Sails ( started as an R&D project at Balderdash in 2012. Three years and a few million downloads later, we’re marching toward v1.0 and want to spread the word. Travis Webb (, CEO of Balderdash and core maintainer of Sails, is going to walk through how Sails accelerates API-driven development to get your next project up and running quickly, and talk about some advanced enterprise features that don’t exist in any other node.js framework today. Join us for an exciting talk about an awesome node.js framework that will help you get your startup off the ground, impress your boss with its ability to integrate with legacy systems, or earn open-source cred.

    The Flux Architecture

    Following up on Pratik's introduction to React a few months ago, Andrew will introduce us to the Flux architecture - an architecture that has not only become the de-facto standard data pattern in programming with React.js, but also has become prevalent in the UI programming world in general.
