MindTouch @ San Diego JS Recap

The MindTouch team had a fantastic time at the San Diego JavaScript meetup last Tuesday! About seventy software engineers, web designers, and enthusiasts attended the presentations by MindTouchers’ Arne Claasen and Andy Vaughn (me). One of the things I appreciate most about the San Diego tech community is the camaraderie between our local developers. San Diego has a smaller pool of developers than our friends up north in San Francisco and the Valley, and as result, networking and establishing relationships with the talent in San Diego is very important. MindTouch, having been born as an open-source company, is always eager to share knowledge and new ideas with our fellow geeks!

Attendees file into the meeting space while Arne prepares for his talk. San Diego JS presentations are hosted at the One America Plaza Building in Downtown San Diego, just a short walk from the MindTouch offices.

Arne opens his josh.js presentation. Short for “JavaScript Online Shell”, josh.js began as MindTouch project to provide a browser shell for MindTouch developers.

Andy introduces himself, and Elvis, to the San Diego JS attendees. Andy explained how to access web performance statistics in the browser, and discussed some of the best practices and philosophy around web performance and user experience.
