Women's Javascript Study Group

  • Jan 16, 2013 · 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.

Please be punctual -- if you will be later than 6:45pm, please skip the group. We have to come down to the lobby to get latecomers, so it's disruptive to dinner and coding to do so.

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 or a presentation on a topic, then all hop on our laptops and work on Javascript tutorials and help each other when we get stuck. Most of us are 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 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 was just confirmed for this group after being on the waiting list. Yay! I can't make it tonight, as I'm attending the Intro to Data Modeling meeting with Girl Develop IT SF. I'll be there next week.
