This month we're having a simple local meeting. Nathan is going to show how he uses jQuery to simplify his life. This will be a great meeting if you are new to jQuery, or if you want to think of jQuery in a new way.
Our September meeting will not be held on the usual day (the 4th Wednesday of the month) instead our good friend Ryan Stewart will be coming down to visit and talk about PhoneGap 2.0!
This meeting will be on Tuesday September 18th, 2012 at 6:30 PM and hosted by our good friends at Collins College (http://www.collinscollege.edu/)
Collins College 14th Street Campus
1425 W. 14th Street, Suite 101, Tempe, AZ 85281
Wrap your app with PhoneGapDeploy to multiple platforms!
Building applications for each device–iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile and more–requires different frameworks and languages. PhoneGap solves this by using standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices. Since PhoneGap apps are standards compliant, they’re future-proofed to work with browsers as they evolve. Read an in-depth post explaining PhoneGap visually.
PhoneGap has been downloaded over 1 million times and is being used by over 400,000 developers. Thousands of apps built using PhoneGap are available in mobile app stores and directories. Check out some of them here.
The PhoneGap code was contributed to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) under the name Apache Cordova. Through the ASF, future PhoneGap development will ensure open stewardship of the project. It will always remain free and open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
About Ryan Stewart
So this month we ran into a drought and couldn't find a speaker or good topic so instead we're going to have a good old fashioned nerd night / CF Open House. Anyone and everyone is welcme to stop by, we'll be at UAT Wednesday August 22nd, 6:30 PM - Open topic session, anyone can talk about anything, ask for help ona project / problem. Tak about hiring, open jobs, complain about your boss... Let's just avoid politcs and religion...
We excel at short notice! I'll tell you why in a minute.
This month we are going to talk about Brackets, a new open source project by Adobe, spearheaded by former ColdFusion product manager Adam Lehman. Up until just a couple days ago we weren't allowed to talk about it, tweet about it, blog about it, and certainly not hold a meeting on it. Well the PR silence period has ended and now we can't help but talk about it. Come check out what Brackets can do tonight.
Now the part where we excel. Not only are we going to talk about something brand new (and thus interesting), we are also giving away a copy of ColdFusion 10. This fantastic tenth release can be yours simply by showing up. We'll raffle it off randomly, and with such a short notice, you have a good chance of winning.
See you tonight!
As usual, we're meeting at UAT in Tempe at 6:30.

This month we have Dan Vega presenting his session from CF.Objective() 2012 titled "Bootstrap: A developers best friend." I (Nathan) saw Dan give it at the conference and I think every developer needs to see this. Twitter Bootstrap is a front-end library that can make your applications look good with very little effort. It adds widgets that make your programs look professional. This is good stuff.
Here is Dan's blurb from the CF.Objective() 2012 site:
In this presentation we will look at Bootstrap, from Twitter. Bootstrap is a toolkit from Twitter designed to kickstart development of webapps and sites. We will look at what this toolkit actually does and how it compares to other toolkits on the block. I rarely start a project without using bootstrap these days and I am sure that after this presentation you will do the same.
As usual, it's at UAT's Tempe campus, in the main auditorium. We will be there this Wednesday, May 23rd. Meet there at 6:30 PM!
