AJAX workshop this Thursday

I can’t go (day before my last day at IBM), but SFWoW is putting on a workshop that I really wish I could attend:

AJAX Hands-on Workshop

When: Thursday, Nov 16, 2006 6pm – 8pm

Where: Marker Seven offices, 701 Sutter, 5th Floor, SF 94109 (see directions below)

Register now! 25$ pre-sale, 30$ at the door (if not sold out) (see ticket info below)

Meet up with other San Francisco Women on the Web members to learn about the exciting technology of AJAX by participating in a hands-on workshop with programmer Catherine Block Daves. This is a follow-up hands-on workshop to our initial Introduction to Ajax lecture.

The workshop will include a brief background on AJAX concepts followed by a hands-on session. The hands-on session will cover the basics of client-side AJAX including navigating an XML response, dynamic creation of buttons, JavaScript syntax, changing styles and avoiding some common mistakes.Requirements: Bring your laptop!

Speaker: Catherine Block Daves is currently working as a software engineer developing business intelligence applications at Actuate Corporation. Catherine discovered the joy of programming in the late 90’s while working in interactive advertising (Red Sky Interactive). During the bust, she found herself with a great deal of free time and decided to follow her newfound love. She attended San Jose State University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science in May 2005, graduating Summa Cum Laude and with honors in her major. Immediately after graduation she started work at Actuate Corporation where she has spent the last year learning the intricacies of JavaScript and DOM while working on an AJAX enterprise application.

Anna has talked me into doing PR for SFWoW, which I think will give me some good experience, so I am looking forward to actually attending an SFWoW event after I start working in the city.
