Jade is the "Haml killer for NodeJS". It's an extensible, terse and whitespace sensitive language that compiles to HTML. Jade supports much the same features as Haml but with an even more terse syntax.
TJ also wrote the NodeJS Haml port, and maintains the Node port of EJS.
Stylus & Nib
Stylus is a powerful language that compiles to CSS. Nib is a set of plugins for Stylus. Stylus and Nib are NodeJS' answer to Rail's SASS/SCSS and Compass respectively. More recently, TJ is developing Rework, which can achieve similar power, but without changing CSS semantics.
BlackBerry devices (non-phone) for up to 3 members
We're pretty excited by this, firstly because cash prizes are awesome, secondly because BlackBerry is offering dollars
for open-source tools (+1 BlackBerry, supporting open-source ecosystem is a great move, IMO) and thirdly because their webkit-powered
browser supports WebGL, which means you should be able to get voxeljs running on it. Nice!
Announcing the latest addition to the CampJS lineup: Max Ogden!
Max and Substack are responsbile for voxel.js: a modular, BSD licesed, voxel
Substack is joining forces with Max to run a voxeljs workshop for us at CampJS, so you'll have the chance to
build your first voxel world and learn how to voxel.js from the authors themselves. Yes, this is awesome.
so excited to venture into the Australian gold coast hinterland in 2 weeks for @campjsnews !!! bringing @voxeljs to the southern hemisphere
Edit 27 Jan: Dang. Unfortunately, Alex is no longer available to come to CampJS.
All our special guests thus far have made names for themselves in the Node.JS ecosystem, client-side developers
must feel somewhat under-represented. But no more, today I am pleased to announce: creator of the
and by all counts at least a reasonably nice guy, Alex MacCaw, is coming to CampJS!
Alex is an international speaker, has worked at Twitter,
currently works for Stripe
and has long been a prolific open-source developer with many popular GitHub projects:
ace, to name a few.
Alex is coming to CampJS to hang out, share some knowledge and some beverages.
Yes, it's called CampJS. Yes, we've used pictures of tents in our branding. But, no, you do not need to bring tents. You will be sleeping in comfortable beds.
We could have used dormitories in our branding, but I have a soft spot for triangular prisms.
Here's some pics of the venue, from RailsCamp, early 2013:
Awesome people who are coming to CampJS: Dominic Tarr
It with this goal in mind, I happily announce a most awesome guest: Dominic Tarr!
