(Hard)Core JavaScript

No libraries, no frameworks, no shortcuts - this group focuses on core JavaScript. Here we will address different low-level JS issues such as code excerpts, performance, paradigms, etc that can be applied anywhere including building new libraries or improve existing ones. We will steer clear from having presentations of frameworks written using JavaScript as there are enough meetups for that purpose. Our goal is to engineer solutions to complex problems and present our findings in core JavaScript that can then be used anywhere. Hardcore JS all the way !

  • Survive JavaScript Interviews

    25-26 Oct 2012 in New York, United States

    This event will be unlike any other JavaScript event.Picture yourself going in for an interview.  Your heart is pounding.  Your hands are sweating.  As you walk in the office and announce your arrival your knees get weak.  The interviewer comes and welcomes you, you shake hands, you get worried about soaking their hand in your sweat and you sweat even more.  They ask you to introduce yourself and you stumble over your own name.  Great!  You're off to a great start.

    15-16 Aug 2012 in New York, United States

    Tonight we will explore the beautiful art of debugging code. There is still a lot of mystery that surrounds this topic. Most developers seem to cringe at the sound of "debugger" though it's possibly the one skill that will allow you to advance to become a rock star developer.The format for tonight's meetup will give everyone something to sink their teeth into, so we will work our way up progressively on the difficulty level.Food and drinks are provided for free courtesy GramercyOne.

  • JavaScript Profiler

    20-21 Jul 2012 in New York, United States

    If you are serious about programming in core JavaScript there are a few tools you will need to incorporate into your workflow, and next to the JavaScript debugger the JavaScript profiler is the next most important tool.In tonight's event we will explore how to effectively use a profiler to identify bottlenecks, ineffective code, performance, along with quickly touching upon how to work with memory leaks - which is not tightly coupled with a profiler per se, but usually is of interest while d
