JavaScript Study Group

Have you ever wondered how to add interactive behavior to an otherwise bland, static HTML CSS page? It is now time to take your webpage a step ahead with JavaScript!

We're a group of women who want to learn JavaScript together. The study group is intended for everyone who wishes to learn JavaScript programming language, it's perfect for beginners with a basic understanding of HTML & CSS, and since there is no prior installation required, JavaScript is hassle free to get started with and fun to create something that’s easy to share with friends. If you already know JavaScript, this can be a great platform for you to get together with fellow developers and hone your skills. If you're advanced, we'd love for you to come and help others learn more.

JavaScript Study Groups are relaxed and informal, so it doesn't matter if you are a fast or slow learner, or if you attend every week. It is a great platform for you to be able to work and play together, while providing each other with ongoing support and feedback. 

There's always at least one mentor present to help you with best practices or guide you through if you are stuck with a nasty problem!


Want to be a JavaScript Study Group leader? 

If you are passionate about learning JavaScript with fellow awesome women and want to help us, come on out!  Shoot me a message or mail me and let me know that you are interested in helping us with the JS study group!

    Hi Nupur, what is the format of the study group? Looks like I'll be working late tonight so not sure if I should still trying to make it tonight or just going to the next one. Thanks!

      Hey Evelyn, its a bring-your-project like setup. People usually work on personal projects or study in their own, they are encouraged to ask mentors if and when they are stuck or discuss amongst fellow learners but all at their own pace! So you can definitely join whenever you want to. Though we do start wrapping up by 8:20 so we dont hold up the venue people!

      Thanks Nupur. Sounds like finding a project would be the first step. For some reason I thought it's more like a education presentation or following a Coursera session. I'll make that note and come prepared next time.
