JS Hack Night

Did you know the Toronto JavaScript and JS Hack Night meetups are merging? It's true! You can sign up for this meetup either place, because it's THE SAME THING. See you there!


Hack nights are a time to slough off your workaday shackles and stretch the limits of what you can do in javascript. It's a chance to experiment with new tools and techniques, learn new paradigms and practices, commiserate and collaborate with fellow devs and make interesting things.


We work in small, self-assembled groups and we'll share our results at the end of the night.

It's important to have project ideas ahead of time, so please do the following:

1. subscribe to js weekly

2. pick something interesting

3. post a comment about it here


Examples of interesting projects:

- try a framework: noflo, meteor, ~todomvc, etc

- try a library: q, allong.es, bilby, lemonad, etc

- try a language: fay, elm, roy, clojurescript, flapjax, etc

- try some web apis: audio, webgl, svg, webrtc, etc

- go parallel: workers, river trail, webcl, etc


We are beginner friendly. Here's some resources for getting up to speed with javascript:

Eloquent JS

Effective JS

JS Allonge

Fun JS


Another great way to learn JS is by reading the source of good libraries -- underscore.js is a solid starting point.
