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.

    As you may remember we had a Q&A session last month, and we actually had many more questions than got answered. So this month we'll start where we let off and do a 20-minute Q&A session to start. Then, we'll dive into the AngularJS talk by Jeremy Likness.

    AngularJS: From a Different Angle

    “There is no doubt AngularJS is one of the hottest JavaScript and Single Page Application (SPA) frameworks in use today. Is Angular just a bunch of hype, or is there substance behind its promise of teaching HTML new tricks? Join iVision principal architect Jeremy Likness when he shares his hands-on experience developing a massive Angular enterprise application with globally distributed teams of dozens developers over a period of several years. See practical examples of Angular and learn about the various concepts that make it a useful framework that isn’t as opinionated as other options in the market. Beginners will benefit from understanding what Angular does and how it impacts the bottom line of technology, people and process and experienced developers will learn best practices and advanced techniques from Jeremy’s extensive Angular experience. There’s something for everyone so be sure to RSVP now!”
