Vancouver Javascript Developers

The Vancouver Javascript Developers group is a brand new meetup for web developers downtown. The focus is on Javascript, HTML5, and the open web. Javascript frameworks, browser functionality, tips and tricks are all fair game. The meeting format is two 45 minute talks, followed by pub time for discussion.
