Seattle native, new to js in 2012...taking a new job in 2/13 with a heavy focus on js.
First visit was great for me! Existing members were very knowledgeable and involved in exciting professional and personal projects. Organizers and ninjas were very gracious toward newbs and generous with their knowledge. Lots of talk and excitement about the current direction of JS and the tools we have available to us. I will definitely go again!
