February 2012 Meetup Details Announced

Following up on last month’s stellar presentation by Nodejitsu‘s, co-founder and CTO, Paolo Fragemeni, Austin JavaScript is back in February with another mover and shaker in the JavaScript and Mobile development industry, Rebecca Murphey.

Rebecca is the lead JavaScript developer at Toura and the lead architect of Mulberry, Toura’s open-source mobile development framework. She’s also a co-founder of the epic TXJS and the author of jQuery Fundamentals. On top of all of that, Rebecca speaks and writes frequently about patterns for organizing large JavaScript applications.

Rebecca will be introducing us to Toura’s Mulberry, which is an open-source, cross-platform mobile application development framework built on top of PhoneGap that lets you use web technologies to produce engaging, content-rich applications. In this talk, Rebecca will give a quick demo of Mulberry basics, then dive in to how they architected the JavaScript, templates, CSS, and tests to create a flexible, pluggable, 100% client-side content publishing system. DON’T SLEEP ON THIS!

Of course we will followup all of this up with our wildly crowd-pleasing roundtable of JavaScript-related questions.  This is an open forum to present topics of discussion in a rapid-fire manner or simply heckle @joemccann.

Finally, we will be throwing the 3rd Annual Austin JS SXSW Party in March so if you and/or your employer/company would like to sponsor the event (or be a part of it), please reach out to @joemccann to find out more details.

Afterwards, the discussion carries on a few blocks away at The Gingerman, where they have over 70 beers on tap.

Any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact Joe (@joemccann).  Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter: @AustinJS.
