Discussion topics:

What is AMD and why should I care? What's the difference between AMD and RequireJS's format? (hint: nothing) How do I write AMD-compliant modules? How do I load AMD-compliant modules? How do I load other resources (css, templates, legacy javascript)? How do I optimize/concatenate my modules? How do I organize my bazillions of modules and resources? How do I integrate with server-side javascript?
