JSLA Sept 25th, 2012

Hello Everyone,

Next week's JSLA will be Tuesday September 25th, hosted at Cross Campus in Santa Monica with food and drinks sponsored by HTML5 Dev Conf (More info below). After the talks we are planning on heading next door to the Bodega Wine Bar to hang out for drinks.js.

If you plan on attending please make sure to RSVP so we know how much food to get:

Our two planned talks are:


Presented by: Giles Bowkett

Simplicity is good, but what happens when your problems aren't simple? In this talk, I'll discuss some of the complexities of handling events and DOM rendering that are overlooked in many Javascript frameworks. We'll then see how Ember provides sophisticated solutions to these issues so that you don't have to.

Sentiment Analysis in a Post Grammatical World

Presented by: Danny Tran, Disney

How do we determine the sentiment of text in a world where syntax and grammer are thrown out of the window? Utilizing Node and Natural, a NLP (Natural Language Processing) toolkit, we'll go through a few techniques ranging from manual polarity determination to machine learning classification, all the while highlighting the challenges of analyzing text in a "post-grammatical" world.

HTML5 Dev Conf

The HTML5 Developer Conference will be held October 15-16 at the gorgeous Palace Hotel in San Francisco, and registration is open!

Speakers include Paul Irish, Steve Souders, Bosco So, Christian Heilmann, Peter Lubbers, Ilya Grigorik, Faruk Ateş, Chris Eppstein and 80 others from Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter, Adobe, Microsoft, LinkedIn, Mozilla, Github, Airbnb, The Onion and many other companies.

We've expanded the conference to two days and a larger venue, but we continue to a diverse list of speakers at the most reasonable price in downtown San Francisco. (For those from out of town, we also have a group rate at the Palace.)

You can keep up to date by visiting our website:, following us on twitter (, and via our mailing list:

Thanks for your attention, see you on the 25th!
