August JavaScript Meetup - Project Night & Lightning Talks

Come work on your projects with lots of other cool JavaScript developers! We'll kick off the night with lightning talks to get us warmed up before open project time. Lightning talks are SHORT (~5minute) talks about a project you've done, a problem you solved, a quick demo, etc. During open project hours, we'll have a "Beginner's Corner" and more experienced developers can volunteer to help level up those new to our community.

If you'd like to do a lightning talk, the topics should obviously surround JavaScript, but are flexible. For example, you could talk about something new you heard about and want to learn more, you could talk about a seemingly insurmountable problem you need to figure out, or you could talk about some cool thing you did and just want to share. If you'd like to talk, comment on the meetup to sign up, send us a message, or mention @phillyjsdev on Twitter.

Doors open at 6pm, Lightning talks start at 6:30 or 6:45.

The Fieldhouse has tasty food and beverage available for purchase. If you or your company would like to sponsor a round of drinks or some appetizers, message organizers using the "Contact" button on the sidebar of Meetup.

      They have WiFi and I was told that they keep upgrading it. Last time it flaked a little so hopefully it's better this time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
