New Haven JavaScript Meetup Lightning Talks

New Haven JavaScript Meetup Lightning Talks

This past July, I attended a JavaScript Programming meetup at the offices of this years winner of the 17th Annual Webby Awards, Digital Surgeons.

Digital Surgeons announced today that it has been named the Best Celebrity/Fan Social Campaign in the 17th Annual Webby Awards. Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. The IADAS, which nominates and selects The Webby Awards Winners, is comprised of web industry experts, including media mogul Arianna Huffington, Skype CEO Tony Bates, Mozilla CEO and Chair Mitchell Baker, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom, mobile-phone inventor Martin Cooper, and StumbleUpon founder Garrett Camp.

I found the JavaScript Programming meetup group (New Haven IO) where else but on A brief description of the group is as follows:

Come enjoy numerous 5-10 minute presentations about a variety of JavaScript technologies.

This meetup is very organized and highly recommended. Guests speakers are brought in to give presentations, all which are very knowledgeable in their respects to JavaScript.

Meetups start with some time to socialize and get familiar with each other in the lounge area of the agency. Afterwards, it’s a few walking steps to the main area for the presentations. Although presentations are 5-10 minutes, many presentations are given so you’ll be sure to hear about something new & exciting at the forefront of JavaScript.

As I previously mentioned, these meetups are very organized. Speakers are thorough, screen projectors to follow along with the material the speaker provides, Q&A after each talk, parking, wi-fi available, and much more. But you will have to attend the meetups yourself to find out just what exactly is the ‘much more’ part I am referring to.

I have had the opportunity to attend an official facebook engineering event (roughly 10 1/2 hours long), working hands on with facebook engineers, and I have to say that the quality of the presentations from NewHaven.js are that of the world class engineers from facebook.
