Update (5:58pm): the link is: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/event/cir1b0616rg5bftqr0smi7jok4o?authuser=0&hl=en
Update (5:42pm): still waiting to get the Event/Hangout link figured out. It'll be here...
We'll do a Google Hangout and you can feel free to ask any questions you have on the curriculum or just see who else is there and if they want to collaborate virtually. It will be open and casual. The location may be posted here immediately beforehand... we're testing out different ways of telling people where it is since Hangout links expire.
BTW, you need to be a Google+ user to use Hangouts. Sorry, but it's the best alternative right now.
See you then!
Also -- if you have a location where we could host one of our weekly events, ideally BART-accessible in San Francisco, let me know!
This meetup follows the curriculum listed at http://theodinproject.com/curriculum. Each week, we'll be facilitating opportunities to pair with other students on the projects of the curriculum and to ask questions. We will not be doing formal instruction.
You cannot learn web development in just a couple hours per week at a meetup -- you need to put in the time and effort outside this group to tackle the curriculum and find other students to pair with on the projects. Our goal is to give you the path forward (via the curriculum) and help you identify the other students with whom you'd like to take this journey (and facilitate scheduling those via the scheduler). The rest is up to you!
