November 19th Meetup – 7:30 PM – Kassandra Perch on Flight

Glad tidings, Austin JavaScripters, we bring you good news of our meetup this month! We’re happy to welcome Kassandra Perch to throw down some knowledge on Twitter’s framework, Flight.

Her talk is titled “Flight: a Framework done right,” and we’ll talk about how the framework is event-driven, component-based, and leverages the DOM to form a cohesive code structure. The concept of functional mixins will also be introduced, and how it is unique from other forms of class composition. Finally, we’ll cover how all of these create a testable, scalable, friendly front-end code base.

Kassandra Perch is a developer, crafter, and gamer. She spends her days at RetailMeNot, as a front-end dev trying to make workflows easier and more efficient. She is a completely unrepentant JavaScript addict, and is especially interested in hardware hacking and Node.JS.

This month’s awesome sponsor is PayPal. Be sure to thank them for the drinks and pizza, or talk to them about some job opportunities! You can also e-mail Hudson Carlton if you are interested in working there.


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