jQuery Deferred Object API

jQuery NYC
24-25 May 2012 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , New York, US

There is a really cool feature that jQuery has implemented that is called the Deferred Object.  Once you start reading up on it, you'll come to jQuery's helpful page that helps you along in understanding it with the following:

"One model for understanding Deferred is to think of it as a chain-aware function wrapper. Thedeferred.then()deferred.done(), and deferred.fail() methods specify the functions to be called and the deferred.resolve(args) or deferred.reject(args) methods ?call? the functions with the arguments you supply. Once the Deferred has been resolved or rejected it stays in that state; a second call to deferred.resolve() is ignored for example. If more functions are added by deferred.then() after the Deferred is resolved, they are called immediately with the arguments previously provided."

If that explanation makes no sense whatsoever to you, you are not alone.  This is a somewhat more advanced feature that the average jQuery developer will not leverage unless another jQuery developer breaks it down into digestible pieces of information

Tonight's meetup will target those who have already worked with jQuery and want to explore the more sophisticated side of jQuery.
