The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

This month Randie Bemis will give a talk, Understanding JavaScript Promises. The talk will address:

  1. What Promises are
  2. What problems they solve
  3. How they work under the hood (live code our own Promise object)
  4. RSVP.js or Q
  5. Promises/A+ Spec

We will also have a presentation from Luc Perkins on Dart, the programming language from Google. Luc will give us a basic intro to:

  • Polymer elements
  • futures
  • DOM manipulation in Dart

Feel free to join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/pdxjs if you too are a JavaScript admirer. Or visit our web site for more information at http://pdxjs.com/.

If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please e-mail Luc Perkins ([email protected]) and Jesse Hallett ([email protected]).
