Last month we quietly released Amplify, a jQuery Component Library. Since then the appendTo team has published articles, webinars, podcasts, given talks at local meetups and held public development status meetings on IRC. In case you haven’t seen what we’ve been doing with Amplify here is a summary.
Amplify article published on Script Junkie
Just this week, an article entitled “Extending Your jQuery Application with Amplify.js” written by Elijah Manor and Andrew Wirick appeared on the Microsoft site Script Junkie. The article focuses on getting you up to speed on Amplify’s capabilities by walking you through a basic sample application and slowly abstracting various parts of the app using Amplify components.
On March 31, 2011, Scott González, Lead Developer on the Amplify project, gave a live walk through of the Amplify jQuery Component Library. The webinar was recorded and can be viewed and/or downloaded. All slides and demos are also available.
The Changelog Podcast
Our own Mike Hostetler and Scott González were both interviewed on Episode 0.5.7 of the Changelog podcast. The discussions ranged from Amplify.js, jQuery, CoffeeScript, Microsoft, the web and open source. Check out the show and let us know what you think.
Amplify Developer Meeting
On Wednesay, we held our first public development meeting for Amplify in IRC on #amplify.js on freenode.net. Amplify is a fully open source project, and as such we are moving our weekly status meetings to IRC. Join in on the discussion and help us build Amplify together each Wednesday at 1:30 PM Central Time. For more information.
The goal of the meetings is to discuss the progress being made and open the discussion up to the community for feedback.
