JS Hack Night

This month we've got Leo Horie giving a workshop on Functional Programming in JavaScript! The workshop title starts with 'FUN', so you know this is going to be a blast!

As usual the workshop runs in parallel with our regular hacking session. See you there!

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.


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.

    First time at a hack night. Not sure what kinds of projects you hack. Is it okay if i just show up and join in on others' projects?

      That's A-OK! There will be a mix of people who have projects and folks who join in on those projects. There's also a workshop. Exciting stuff!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
