There are many new tools out there to help you create your killer web application quickly and easily. This month, local developer Mark Casias will review a few of those tools and discuss the pros and cons of using them.

After that bring your favorite argument and best chip on your shoulder as he pits the various tools against each other:

* Javascript Libraries: jQuery vs. Prototype
* CMS: Drupal vs. Wordpress
* PHP Frameworks: Codeigniter vs. CakePHP vs. Zend (cage match)
* Possible guest battle featuring Plone

Two men enter … two will most likely leave.

Presentation to be followed by socializing at Uptown for those folks who want to stick around.


Mark Casias has been developing for the web for over twelve years. Most notably he worked at AOL, moving their infrastructure from the proprietary FDO language to the HTML that is prevalent now.

He enjoys creating dynamic web interfaces that are easy for the end user to navigate through.

Before getting into development Mark was producer for the 94Rock morning show. Outside of nerdy things, Mark enjoys playing tennis and hockey.
