Famo.us also provides extensive free training, examples, and tutorials through Famo.us University. Their live coding environment allows students to see their code rendered in real time and work through topics at their own pace. We plan on taking advantage of their passion for education by partnering with Famo.us to deliver a top notch developer event in San Francisco in mid 2015 (stay tuned!).
We are working on a number of new initiatives: Making improvements to how our innovative technical community collaborates. Famo.us has a number of widgets they intend to make available as jQuery plugins and we look forward to taking advantage of their support and expertise as we work to improve the extended community guidance around jQuery plugins.
Famo.us developers will be joining our technical efforts so please say ‘hello’ and make them feel welcome. Co-founder and CEO Steve Newcomb has been elected to the jQuery Foundation board of directors. We look forward to benefiting from the unique perspectives, business acumen and life experiences Steve will bring to our board in helping us move forward toward accomplishing our mission.
It’s going to be a great partnership and a busy New Year. With that, please join us and give Famo.us a shout out and welcome them to the jQuery Foundation!
