Front End Developers United Meetup: Using Dust.js at Paypal and LinkedIn

March 18, 2013

Front End Developers United meetup will be hosting a talk by Jeff Harrell and Veena Basavaraj at LinkedIn on March 28, 2013 at 6:30 PM.

Jeff will discuss how he and his team at PayPal are using Dust.js and JavaScript templating to enable rapid, lean UX development from prototype to production, and to bridge their legacy and new UI technology stacks.

Next Veena will provide a close look at how LinkedIn uses Dust.js to render page templates, using JavaScript, on both the client and server. She will be talking about challenges and solutions for generating e-mails, site SEO, formatting / localization, and AB testing.

Please RSVP to let us know you are coming. Drinks and light fare will be provided - also, show up early for some sweet dust.js t-shirts!
