Women's Javascript Study Group

  • Apr 3, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Scheduled Presentation:
Angular.js, a JavaScript library and framework.



We're a group of women who want to learn 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.


Our meetings begin with yummy food catered by our host, Zoosk, and we eat with Zoosk employees (some of whom can answer JS questions!). Afterwards, we have a short discussion or a presentation on a related topic when scheduled, then all hop on our laptops and work on JavaScript tutorials and help each other when we get stuck. Most of us are using, but we welcome other tools. Although the focus is on JavaScript, we also cover closely related topics such as HTML and CSS.

(The only tools you need to start using JavaScript are a web browser and optionally a simple text editor or code editor.)


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.

This event is exclusively open to people who identify as female.

    I had a really great time tonight! I enjoyed the presentation on angular.js!!! It got me really excited to learn more JavaScript and learn to use angular. Thank you to the lovely lady for introducing it to us. :)

    In case anyone's interested, Codemotion Berlin's proposal deadline is on Monday 4/7, and they have specifically tweeted about wanting more women in tech to submit!

    Also, there's a hack event this weekend:

      I'm really sorry. I set an alarm to remember to go down to check again at 6:45 for late comers but it didn't go off and I started helping set things up and forgot until too late. I set 2 different reminders and alarms for next time so hopefully it won't happen again.
