Rookies Go To Code School

JSRookies and RubyRookies join forces at Hack Reactor to learn using Code School, and work on personal projects. The kickoff session will use free CodeSchool.com tracks.  Take your pick:

Javascript Trackhttp://www.codeschool.com/courses/try-jquery

Ruby Trackhttp://www.codeschool.com/courses/try-ruby

In the following sessions, we will hit up other learning modules and also work on personal projects.

(These are JS & Ruby mixers where everyone learns!)

 

Goals - To collaboratively learn using personal project, the power of community, and CodeSchool.com.  Learn from each other, and work together on a practical project that will help reinforce concepts.

 

May 9th and 16th - This will cover the Try jQuery module.

- Participants work together on a project that is inline with what is outlined within the class. Attached is the sample code for the project. 
- After the two events participants will be encouraged to continue with the jQuery Air and the Coffeescriptmodules. This will help to prepare them for the next session.

June 6th and 13th - This will cover Anatomy of Backbone.js

Possible speaker event on June 13th

* possible food sponsorship as well


Recommended background - Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS would be helpful, but not absolutely required.  Have Ruby interpreter installed.  Chrome browser is recommended for JS hacking.

Bring your laptops, and create a free account on CodeSchool. See you there!

    If anyone has gone through the first jQuery module and wants a fun coding project that highlights some the skills that were presented in the class, then go here: https://github.com/JSRookies/jquery-faq. We'll live code the solution at this upcoming event.
