The Riverside JS Workshop provides developers an opportunity to build and maintain rock-solid JavaScript skills in a collaborative hands-on format. We are committed to the simple principle that People Learn by Doing. To provide that learning-by-doing experience, we are organized online through a Google+ community and host monthly workshops to share and discuss our work with others. Please understand, that our workshops are not PowerPoint driven lectures to a passive audience. Members are expected to develop code, bring it to the workshops, and share it with others.


The Riverside JS Workshop welcomes engaged developers of any skill level, from beginner to bleedin’ genius. To provide a challenging environment to all of our members we have created a two-tier program to guide our workshop activities. The first tier is a Skills Ladder, targeting beginner and intermediate developers. The Skills Ladder walks you through the foundation skills needed for JavaScript development. With the Skills Ladder, the assess his/her own abilities and finds the appropriate starting point. The second tier of our focused of development of JavaScript code to solve real world problems. In all cases, we encourage members work together to build creative and intelligent solutions.
