Teresa Light and Leigh Haubach are co-organizers of the new Famo.us Meetup in San Diego. Please join us at the SIM Center in San Diego for our next meeting on 8/13/14. See http://www.meetup.com/Famous-in-SanDiego/ to RSVP.
Here we bring you our latest communication from Steve Newcomb, CEO of Famo.us:
In this week’s 10 things, I want to share some of the posts from our new blog, details about our upcoming meetup, and several new community resources and examples. I also want your feedback about what you want to learn in our sessions at the upcoming HTML5 Developers Conference.
As always, I welcome your questions, ideas, and even hate mail. You can also tweet me @stevenewcomb.

2. Meetup agenda
Our August 13 meetup is coming up. Here’s what we’ll be covering at the event:
– A piece of news that will help make Famo.us and our community very successful
3. Meetup simulcast
We realize that not everyone can make it to our meetup in San Francisco. To make sure we include as many of our community as possible, we’ll be simulcasting the stage presentation from the event starting at 6:30pm Pacific Time on August 13.
The San Diego Famo.us meetup group, led by Teresa Light, will be hosting a viewing party in that city. If you’ve scheduled a viewing party in your city, let us know via Twitter or email and we’ll add the details to the simulcast page.
Our blog is now live. You can expect news and announcements, tips and best practices for working with the Famo.us framework, community highlights, and discussion of the concepts Famo.us is built on. We welcome your comments.
5. Why 60 FPS matters
There’s a lot of debate around frame rate in our community. Some people say 30 FPS is enough. Others say 60 is the right number. In this blog post, Larry Robinson explains why the proper frame rate depends on context.
6. Famo.us community resources list
The Famo.us community creates new resources and helpful demos every day. This list, which anyone in the community can contribute to, is one of the most comprehensive collections of Famo.us information and examples outside of Famo.us University. If you’ve built something you want to share, we encourage you to put it on the list.
7. App spotlight: Ziteboard
Ziteboard is a zoomable whiteboard for collaboration built with Famo.us. The company, which is based in Hungary, recently won the CosHxLabs competition and used its winnings to hire two developers and a designer. Check it out here.
8. Call for CodeMentors
When you’re learning Famo.us, you’ll occasionally get into a situation where Famo.us University, the reference docs, and the examples aren’t quite enough to get you over the hump and you just need 1:1 help. That’s why Famo.us is working with Codementor to help connect you with experienced mentors for instant help via screen sharing, video, and text chat as you learn.
If you’d like to help others learn Famo.us, we’d like to invite you to become one of the first Famo.us Codementors. You can create your own schedule for answering questions and doing live online code reviews, and get paid for providing help that you’d probably offer anyways. Apply now.
9. Tell us what classes you want at the HTML5 Developers Conference
The next HTML5 Developers Conference is coming up October 20-24 in San Francisco. We are planning to teach several all-day boot camp workshops, and we want your input so we can make sure these sessions meet your needs.
What topics do you want us to cover? Are you interested in beginning or advanced instruction? Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
10. Find a local meetup group near you
The number of Famo.us meetup groups around the world is growing. We mark them on our map as we learn about them. If there isn’t one in your city, email email@example.com to find out how to start your own.
As always, you can email me anytime or find me on Twitter.
