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.

    What'sup y'all!

    This month we are going to shake it up a little and do something different.

    Scopes and Closures

    First, Chris Aquino - the great teacher and Director of Frontend and HTML5 from Big Nerd Ranch will explain to us how scopes and closures in JavaScript works. Chris fearlessly, and with a zen-like calm, leads BNR's web team. If Chris’s ping-pong skills don’t impress you, perhaps you will be wowed by his ability to open, apply, and close a tube of lip balm with just one hand.

    First Ever Q & A

    For a long time I have wondered, what would happen if we just open up the floor to questions and answers at the meetup? Come and find out!

    Do you have a burning question about JavaScript, programming, career, or life in general? It can be a detailed and nit picky question or a large and big-picture question. Maybe a question that you haven't quite gotten a satisfactory answer to in the past. Anything from "WTF is `this`?" to "which framework should I use?" If you have one, write it down and bring it to the meetup. There will be people of various skill levels and various career stages to help you.
