Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Amos King will give a presentation on the Tessel, a microcontroller that runs JavaScript:

“Bring your hardware to hack. If you have any thing that works on 3.3v we should be able to use it. We can also work off of 5V depending on how we power the Tessel, but 3.3V is safe. Bring old toys that have motors, sensors, leds. We might be able to use them. I am bringing 7 tessels and some modules plus a few fun things to play with.

“The Tessel brings the event driven callbacks of the real world to the event driven callbacks of javascript. Node compatibility and wifi on board make this device perfect for ubiquitous computing ideas to be brought to life. Have you ever wanted your toaster connected to the web? I haven't either, but there are plenty of other ideas I've had in mind. Put a ble device on your dog and have him/her tweet every time she is close to home. These are just a few ideas, but what can you come up with?

“I will share some of the things that I have done, and some background on the Tessel. Then we will dive into a hack session and see what we can come up with in small groups. I do not work for Technical Humans, but I love hardware and I love this platform.”

-------

After the presentation, there will random drawings for three Amazon.com $100 gift cards, courtesy of Accelebrate, one of the evening's sponsors. Accelebrate offers private, on-site AngularJS training.

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, there will be a presentation on Ext JS by Mitchell Simoens.

Ext JS is an OOP JavaScript framework boasting a class-based architecture with 150 UI components, a strong data package and MVC/MVVM application structure. Ext JS is used by more than half of the Fortune 100 companies and is the leading standard for building business-centric Web applications. Mitchell will give an introductory presentation, including live examples of how to build a simple application with Ext 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. 

Following the presentation, there will be one random drawing for a free two-day conference pass to St. Louis SecureWorld 2014. Don't miss your chance to win!

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.

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 6pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 6:30pm, there will be a presentation on Functional Programming in JavaScript by Brad Urani.

Functional programming is the rage, but you don't need to learn a functional language to get started doing it. In fact, JavaScript has had almost everything you need to program in a purely functional style from the beginning.

In this talk, we'll explore the basics of functional programming – higher-order functions, partial function application, lazy evaluation and persistent data structures. We'll see how a functional style helps you compose logic in a way that's clean, testable and free of certain classes of bugs. Then we'll tie it together into a purely functional style by demonstrating a clever algorithmic game solver.

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!

We're starting the meeting 30 minutes early this month because at 8pm a fundraising event will be held in the same space. STLJS is unaffiliated with the event, but its organizers have indicated that all STLJS attendees are welcome to stick around and participate. Additional details are available on their Facebook event page:

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.
