Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday June 16 will be “Developing Enterprise AJAX Applications Using Ext-JS 4” with Steve Drucker.  

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Ext JS 4 is a major advance in JavaScript frameworks. Learn about its new features including Flash-free drawing and charting, an advanced data-handling package, the best datagrid commercially available, support for HTML 5 features, enhanced form validation feedback, easy theming using SASS & Compass, and an object-oriented MVC framework that ties everything together. Best of all, Ext 4 applications can now be made to be Section 508 compliant, localized for international support, and are backwards-compatible to IE 6.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it’s not mandatory and it’s not a commitment.

After logging in here, you’ll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, “Add to my calendar”, which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That’s a default that has chosen, which I can’t change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
