NodeSchool Workshop

  • Mar 25, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This week we are going to learn the basics of node.js. Instead of having someone talk for an hour, you are going write code and get hands on with node.js. http://nodeschool.io/ has choose your own adventure style lessons. We will be doing the "Learn You The Node" lesson. This lesson will give the basics of node, async i/o, and http.

You will need a laptop with a recent version of node.js (0.10.xx, [masked] preferred) and your favorite JS editor. It is important that node.js is installed before coming as we would like to spend as much time coding as possible. I will have the packages and docs needed to complete this lesson on USB thumb drive(s). However, if you wanted to follow the directions at http://nodeschool.io/#learn-you-node to download the packages before hand it would speed up the event.

All levels of developers are encouraged to attend - even those that just want to start learning JavaScript. There will be people there to help you if you need it.

A big thanks once again goes out to Corvisa Services which will be hosting the meetup and providing us with Food and Drinks.

    I would have liked at least one of the presenters/hosts to be working along with everyone. It may have felt like more of a group activity. Was a fun time though; maybe as the group matures and we get to know each other these will go even better.

      Agreed.

      Ok. I will be honest, I expected to be more busy helping people. That is why we asked for help on monday. Since we were not more busy helping, I did feel like I should be doing something more but didn't know what. Good to know for the future.

    I really liked this workshop. It would be nice to have tables set up and make sure there is access to power. I hope to make it to more.

    • Jeff G.

      Agree! Tables would have been very helpful, though I realize the limitations of the space.

      I noticed a bunch of tables in the back. If/when we do this again, we will see if corvisa is ok with us using them.

    May you please post the curriculum that your TAs will be following?

    March 24, 2014

  • Ryan A.

    It sounds like you'll have TA's lined up, but in case you weren't planning to I highly suggest you find one or two people that are there just to help those who need it during the meetup.

    March 4, 2014

    • Tony G.

      Yes there should be TAs. I will find them! :) In fact if anyone wants to help out just let Dustin or me know.

      March 4, 2014

    • Ryan A.

      Tell them you'll even give them free beer (you don't have to mention that Corvisa always does that)
