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 meetup is virtual. It will take place online at TECH404 - a realtime chat community for technology enthusiasts in Atlanta.

    We will first talk about the dream speakers we would like to see, then we will go into an open community Q&A format.

You can use Slack's web-based interface or you can download the desktop version of Slack, it's up to you. Once you are in TECH404, look to the sidebar on your left and find the CHANNELS list. Click the '+' just below the list to bring up the "Browse Channels" dialog, type in 'javascript' in the search box, see the #javascript channel below and click on it, then click "Join Channel".

    If you have tried to learn to use git and Github but haven't been able to break through the enormous learning curve, or was scared away before you even attempted it, then this workshop is for you.

    Hands On 

    You will need to bring your own laptop. We will have wi-fi access at the venue so you'll be able to install git and the workshop material while there. But you'll get extra points for installing it before hand.

    Workshop Size and Waiting List

    The RVSP limit is 38. The waiting list is handled automatically by Meetup on a first come first serve basis.

    More details to come soon.

    Dylan Schiemann (@dylans) - CEO of Sitepen and co-creator of Dojo is coming into town for one day to speak to us about Intern - a JavaScript testing framework they've created at Sitepen. 

    Want to test all the things efficiently? Are you looking for a way to run unit tests, functional tests (without the typical WebDriver pain), and integration tests, and get code coverage analysis and continuous integration with one collection of packages? In this talk we’ll introduce you to Intern, a modern testing framework. You’ll learn about the fundamental features of Intern, such as assertions, async testing, mocking and stubbing, dependency injection and management, even how to test native mobile apps. You’ll leave with a solid introduction to start testing your applications with Intern.

    We are still deciding on the location for this event. If you would like to help out, please reach out to us.
