JS Rookie Eat & Learn (byo lunch)

Goal/Audience - Primarily for beginners to learn JavaScript together and help each other. (If you are an expert, and just want to come hack during lunch and help out some newbies, swing by!)

Format - Bring your lunch and learn JavaScript by pairing up with another person. Meet others and learn together.

Pair programming - two people, one computer. One types, the other talks/directs. Switch frequently. You both learn. It works beautifully.

Suggested materials:

1. Codecademy.com JS tutorial modules.

2. Mozilla JavaScript Guide examples.

3. Eloquent JavaScript - eloquentjavascript.net

4. byo project. Some are working with meteor framework. As another example, I'm tinkering with D3, and could use some help getting better at selecting and manipulating DOM elements. Come play!

(For now - let's try meeting every 2 weeks through March.)
