Women's Javascript Study Group

  • December 5, 2012 · 6:30 PM

Overview

We're a group of women who want to learn to Javascript together.  We welcome people of all levels, but beginners are especially encouraged. You move at your own pace in this group, so it doesn't matter if you are a fast or slow learner, or if you attend every week.

We meet every Wednesday, 6:30 - 9pm.  Free (non-pizza) dinner included, with gluten-free and vegetarian options.


Format

Our meetings begin with yummy food catered by our host, Zoosk, and we eat with Zoosk employees (some of whom can answer JS questions!).  Then we have a short discussion and a presentation on a topic (relating vaguely to Javascript), then all hop on our laptops and work on Javascript tutorials and help each other when we get stuck.  We're currently using codecademy.com, but we welcome other tools.


Venue

Thanks to Zoosk, our wonderful sponsor, for the food, space, and support.

Our entrance is to the right of the Blick Art Supply Store on Market Street, one block southwest of Powell Street BART and the Westfield Mall.  If you're afraid of the dark, no worries -- we can all walk to BART/Muni together afterwards. Just go on in (or knock if it's locked), and sign in at the security desk.  The guard will get your name and then send you up to the 5th floor reception area, and a friendly Zoosker (Beth or Kristin) will meet you in the lobby.


PS - If you want to come but don't have a laptop, just RSVP with a note and we'll try to find one for you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
