YYC.js is comprised of a group of Calgary web developers and JavaScript aficionados with a passion for open source software.  Our passion for software written in JavaScript stems from the ability to be extremely creative due to JavaScript's flexible nature.  NodeJS allows us to bring this creativity to the server side while also affording the ability to create large-scale performant systems.  Our group meets regularly to perform demos, provide tutorials, collaborate on open source software, and generally discuss the world of JS.
