October Meetup Details Announced

Coming off last month’s meetup, we now have the first in our guest speakers series at Austin JavaScript plus another local giving his presentation from JSConf EU in Berlin.

Brian Leroux, Lead at Nitobi, co-author of Phonegap, and creator of projects like XUI and Lawnchair and wtfjs.com will be flying in from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to talk to us about Phonegap, an open source development framework for building cross-platform mobile apps. Phonegap allows you to build apps in HTML and JavaScript and still take advantage of core features in iPhone/iTouch, iPad, Google Android, Palm, Symbian and Blackberry SDKs. Brian will be giving a talk on Phonegap, when you should and should not use it and also showcase the brand new app packaging in the cloud service at build.phonegap.com.

Joe McCann, Senior Technologist at frog design and Principal at subPrint Interactive will be giving his presentation on Rapid Prototyping with JavaScript for Multiple Platforms that he gave in Berlin at JSConf.Eu.  Read the comprehensive description of his talk here and go check out the source code for the apps for the demos on github.

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) or Kyle (@getify). Also, official group on twitter: @AustinJS
