Instructional Methods:

Each class will include a lecture introducing new concepts, then a step-by-step lab showing how to implement the concepts discussed in the lecture. 

Afterwards, people are encouraged to work alone or in groups to experiment with the new concepts presented. People are encouraged to ask questions anytime during the class.

Attendance is always optional; each week’s material will be repeated the following week to allow for personal scheduling flexibility. There will never be any tests or grades. A laptop is required for participation in the labs.

What this course will not cover: 

CSS, Node.js, server side programming, HTTP APIs and JavaScript libraries, with the exception of a bit of jQuery at the end of the course for fun.

Recommended Reading:

Important

Each module will be presented twice in succession, so if you can't make a class the first time a module is presented do not worry as it will be presented again the following week. 

Also this meetup is closed to recruiter. No exceptions.

      If the entire class feels like we're going to slow I can speed things up.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
