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.

    Talk 1: Debugging Javascript: 0 to Heisenberg

    During our time together I will share how to debug JavaScript in the browser console and JavaScript best practices for easier debugging. I will be using Chrome Dev Tools, though all techniques can be applied to other browser. Topics included will be: breakpoints, coded breakpoints, watches, console.log(), assertions, call stacks, Watches, XHR requests, console programming, custom debug tools, pre-debugging tools, and unit testing.

    Talk 2: Meet Famo.us

    Armed with sexy demos powered by a 3D physics and layout engine, a new JavaScript framework called Famo.us has caught the eye of both developers and investors. Come explore it’s evolution and participate in a deep dive into what has been positioned as the future of mobile web development. Learn what it is, how it works and see it in action.
