San Francisco PHP Meetup

P: n/a
Gamespot.com hosts a monthly PHP meetup at the CNET building in San
Francisco. The next meetup is this Thursday, Sept 4 at 7 PM. After
several months of solid PHP talks, we're broadening our horizons a bit
and exploring the popular Mootools Javascript framework with Aaron
Newton.

Please RSVP here: http://php.meetup.com/139/calendar/8382852/

In this meetup, Aaron Newton covers the Mootools JavaScript framework
from top to bottom. We explore the basic utility methods provided by
the framework, delve into the provided functionality from the straight
forward (Ajax, Drag'n'Drop, etc) to the more complex (rich effects,
sortables, psuedo-selectors, etc), and then move into how to extend
Mootools for your own use. We examine the Class inheritance
architecture and provide some real world examples of how it all works.

Aaron will cover:
* What makes Mootools different than other frameworks;
* How to use Mootools as it's intended;
* How to extend Mootools and the Javascript environment using it;
* How to write your own Mootools plugins;
* What Mootools has to offer and how it fits with your own sense of
style.

Aaron Newton is the Startup Guy/Founder of iminta.com. He describes
himself as a founder, designer, programmer, press contact, etc. and
spends most of his time writing ruby and JavaScript.
