Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Siddique Hameed will present "Advanced AngularJS":

In his previous presentation on AngularJS, Siddique touched on the basics and fundamental concepts of the framework. In this second part of the series, we'll take a deep dive into some of the more advanced features and offer tips and tricks for putting it to work. We'll also explore best practices and real world use-cases, walk through code samples, and discuss ideas on leveraging AngularJS most effectively.

Starting about 8:30pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and Node.js in general.

Advantage Consulting will be sponsoring complementary sodas and sandwiches, and you're welcome to BYOB, so come hungry, come thirsty, bring your laptop and be ready to code!

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Mark Volkmann will present "JavaScript Grievances":

Mark will walk us through a list of twenty or so of the most common complaints about JavaScript. The point is to show that few of them are serious issues. Most fall into these categories:

* Don't occur in practice
* Are avoided by using linting tools
* Are addressed in ES6
* Aren't real issues

After a short break, Matt Follett will give us an introduction to Web Components:

According to the W3C, "Web Components enable Web application authors to define widgets with a level of visual richness and interactivity not possible with CSS alone, and ease of composition and reuse not possible with script libraries today."

Open source projects such as Google Polymer and Mozilla's X-Tag are bringing this proposed set of standards to the browsers of today in the form of layered polyfill libraries; and some of the bleeding edge browser builds already feature native implementations of several pieces, including HTML Imports and Custom Elements.

Starting about 8:30pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and Node.js in general.

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Siddique Hameed will present An Angle on AngularJS:

AngularJS is another "new kid" on the block in the so-called JavaScript jungle. Its been touted as a super-heroic framework and seems to be providing good results, comparable or better than what can be achieved with similar data-binding / MVC frameworks like Knockout, Backbone.js and Ember.js. The biggest challenge facing AngularJS adopters is its comprehensiveness. It presents an enormous amount of material to learn and absorb on the road to developer productivity.

So, what are some of the sweet-spots and pain points in using AngularJS? How does it compare to developing Web applications using classic tools like JQuery, Prototype, and Dojo? These points and more will be discussed. A basic introduction will be provided, followed by a code walkthrough of an end-to-end miniature Web application that demonstrates the core concepts and features of AngularJS.

After a short break, Perrin Westrich will take us on an exploration of functional programming with JavaScript.

Starting about 8:15pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and node.js in general.

Complementary sodas and sandwiches will be provided, and you're welcome to BYOB, so come hungry, come thirsty, bring your laptop and be ready to code!

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Dylan Hassinger will present Building Realtime Apps with Sails.js:

Sails.js is a revolutionary new framework for NodeJS that speeds up the creation of high performance, realtime web apps. Every Sails app is built around a RESTful API — offering a great foundation for today's "frontend-centric" applications. Plus there's a built-in Websocket transport, an asset pipeline, resourceful routing, and lots more!

In this presentation we'll take a tour of Sails, then dive in and create a small application.

Starting about 8:15pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and node.js in general.

Complementary sodas and sandwiches will be provided, and the pub downstairs serves good beer, so come hungry, come thirsty, bring your laptop and be ready to code!

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Michael Tomko will present Lazy.js for Performance and Efficiency: 

Michael Tomko — Production Director at The Able Few — will demonstrate how to use Lazy.js to effectively perform complex operations on large arrays in a way that is both performant and memory efficient, using working examples from his forthcoming Spotify app, Rock Tumbler.

Starting about 8:30pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and Node.js in general.

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Brad Urani will present "Test-Driven Development in JavaScript with Jasmine":

You've heard of Test-Driven Development, now learn what it's all about. In this presentation, Brad Urani – Director of Engineering at Upside Financial – will demonstrate the test-driven approach to JavaScript. We'll cover the principles of writing good unit tests, and learn why we should write our tests before we write our functions. We'll discuss monkey patching, dependency injection and mocking as strategies for isolating functionality.

Using Jasmine, a unit testing framework for JavaScript, we'll create self-documenting code that can be automatically tested in any browser. Examples will include test-driven JavaScript for the browser, examples from real world projects, and an overview of unit testing in Node.js.

Starting about 8:30pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and Node.js in general.

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Jeff Barczewski will present Hapi – Node.js Framework for Apps and Services:

Hapi is an open source Node.js web framework originally developed by Walmart Labs.

• Why did Walmart labs build the Hapi web framework after trying to build first on Express and then Director?

• How is Hapi different from the other Node.js web frameworks? 

• Why does Daniel Shaw @dshaw of the NodeFirm believe this is one of the best ways to build API's?

• Why has Jeff switched from being an avid Strata web framework supporter to Hapi?

Jeff will answer these intriguing questions and will take you on a tour of this rich new framework using real code examples and demonstrations as the guides. The simplicity and elegance of the Hapi API are inspiring, and will provide you with ideas for your own projects.

Starting about 8:15pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and node.js in general.

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Mark Volkmann will present "Grunt: a tool for executing Web development tasks":

Why use Grunt? In one word: automation. The less work you have to do when performing repetitive tasks like minification, compilation, unit testing, linting, etc, the easier your job becomes. After you've configured it, a task runner can do most of that mundane work for you — and your team — with basically zero effort. Mark will give us an overview of Grunt, laying the foundations for applying this powerful tool in your day-to-day development work.

After a short break, Sam Pepose will present "Knockout: simplify your dynamic UIs":

Knockout is a lightweight Javascript MVVM framework for simplifying dynamic UIs. It is declarative, dependency-free, backwards-compatible, and packs a punch for its size. Sam will demonstrate the conversion of a typical jQuery application to a Knockout-based app.

Starting about 8:30pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and node.js in general.

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, The Able Few's Michael Bishop will present Git Flow:

Releasing software is great. Version control helps, but it still asks you to be the keeper of your code. If you have lots of components and different projects, versioning can become a nightmare to keep track of. What went live? When did it go live? What's deployed right now?

Git Flow is an answer to that: an organized way to manage your releases. Michael will demonstrate how The Able Few leverages Git Flow to manages its releases of code for clients and internal projects alike.

Starting about 8:15pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and node.js in general.
