We would like to apologize for putting up the dates prematurely. We are currently still working on finalizing a contract and will put up the official dates when we get them.
We heard that several community members would be disappointed if we competed with notacon so we have taken our contract back to the hotel for re-evaluation. We hope this will result in a more favorable date, but we won’t know for sure until about next month.  As soon as the contract is finalized we will make sure to let everyone know and we are so sorry for making you wait.

Mug Meeting – Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

For our main presentation, we have Bill Allie giving a presentation titled: “An Introduction to the Ext-JS Web Application Development Framework”

Ext-JS is a pure JavaScript application framework that will work in browsers from IE6 to Chrome 11. Using Ext-JS, you can create cross-platform applications using only a browser. It has an extensive APi that provides you with the tools and wigets you will need for your application.

This presentation will provide an introduction to Ext-JS and provide an overview of the basic framework and the core components (widgets) provided by the framework. Also, examples of using the framework as well as lessons learned while using the framework will be presented.
For the second presentation, Craig Maloney will present a command called “pv”.

pv, or “progress viewer” is one of those commands that you probably won’t use on a day-to-day basis, but is extremely handy for long-running jobs where you’re left wondering “just how far along IS it,anyway?”
In addition to the two presentations outlined above, we’ll kick off the new year with the opening of nominations for the “Board of directors” of MUG. Every year at this time we offer members a chance to help MUG either by nominating themselves or someone they think will help lead our group through the next 12 months.
The nominations will officially open on Tuesday, Jan 10th and the election will be held on Tuesday, February 14th, 2012 (Weather permitting).
And Of course we’ll have some of the other great features you’ve come to enjoy at our meetings, including current events and Job/People seekers.

Hope to see you at 6:30pm on Tuesday, January 10th, 2012.

We are back at the Farmington Community Library (map)
We’ll be in the large auditorium upstairs.
