Often considered as not so serious in the recent past, Javascript has come a long way in becoming the most popular language used on all size projects. A handful of libraries such as jQuery brought it to the masses and unveiled the true potential of JS resulting in a widespread adoption of it. As you may find out it is very easy to get started with Javascript, almost instantly you can see your code being executed in the browser window and strike a superhero pose thinking out loud "I rock!!!". In reality as easy it is to write JS code it's even easier to write bad code or over engineered chunks to do simple or complex tasks.
This meetup is geared toward the beginner in Programing in general with a focus on Javascript. We will take the baby steps to learn the core language first and slowly but surely look at libraries and frameworks.
If you are a print or web designer who has never coded before but want to add a new skill to your toolbox, a hobbyist who is enthused by new languages and technologies in general, or want to unlock the true potential of HTML5 with the new APIs such as geolocation, File, websockets and more, this is definitely the meetup for you.
This will be run workshop style with a lot of hands on training and a small amount of lectures and presentations. So come and get ready to get your hands dirty.
