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.

    Hello JS'ers! This is a hands-on Node.js workshop, for people new to Node. The course material will be "Learn You The Node.js For Much Win!" from http://nodeschool.io/.... You are expected to bring your own laptop and have Node.js installed and ready to go (it's not hard, just hit the "Install" button at nodejs.org). If you don't have a laptop and want to come, contact me and we'll work out something with you. We will have 4 teaching assistants on-hand to assist you while you work through the course. The location is ThoughtWorks at Colony Square. 

    Note: RSVPs have been capped to 30 people because we want to have a small enough group for the TAs to help effectively.
