First, let me just say "use dojo 0.9 or greater!" It is API incompatible with 0.4.X but it is the future of dojo. It is leaner, quicker, and... well... better.
OK, I know this blog is a bit shoddy and doesn't flow... but our schedule is really tight and I shouldn't be spending much time blogging.
Simon and I flew into New York Friday morning, sped over to the Manhattan IBM building in a cab, and after setting off alarms, getting our badges, and waiting around, Alex Russell showed up and let us in. We were just in time for introductions where I learned about people's giant pet cats, failed music bands, and other secrets. It was basically a big getting-to-know-each-other, followed by break out sessions. After lunch we really started to make some progress getting a picture of dijit status and planning for 0.9 beta.
The evening started at ESPN Zone, a sports bar in Madison Square, and then a handful of us proceeded to the Belmont, a lounge in Union Square. I am a beer guy, but still I highly recommend the passion fruit mohito.
Saturday was much the same but included more people using (not just contributing to) dojo toolkit.
