Javascript Hack Night Tomorrow - Details and jQueryTO Conference Pass Giveaway

From: Mark R.

Hey Folks -

A bunch of you made mention that you were planning to attend tomorrow night -

Trying to get everything in order re. food and drinks for tomorrow night, and I want to make sure the numbers are right, so please RSVP in the Meetup, or shoot us a note and let us know so we can add you -

If you are still on the fence, you should fall off the fence on the 'Yes' side -

These events have always been a lot of fun -

For all you beginners out there - the event will have some *very* beginner friendly options, as well as people on board to help you out if you get stuck.

Will also have some resources ready for you to refer to -

Also forgot to mention in the Meetup that we *will* be doing a jQueryTO Conference Pass giveaway at the Hack Night (in case you are risky enough to not have a Pass to the conference already!)

Just as an idea, here are some of the challenges that people tackled last time:

Interface Challenges

1. Build Your Own Lightbox

2. Build Your Own Slideshow

3. Build an input box with a character counter (like Twitter - counting down from 140)

Game Show

Build a Jeopardy game

  • Two-Players can play

  • Players are shown a question that requires a one-word answer

  • If a User ‘buzzes’ first, they get the opportunity to try and answer

  • A correct answer gets a certain number of points

  • A wrong answer gets a point deduction

Art and Numbers Challenge

Build an Interface that uses numbers to generate interesting art or interface effects


Hope you can make it out tomorrow night!

See you soon -
