JS Hack Night

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.

    Dann,

    Would it be okay to get my laptop and talk about some things I am stuck on? Maybe get some guidance.

    Hey all. Anyone JS hackers interested in getting into the Bitcoin wallet space? We're looking for 1-2 full-time devs to join our team. We're a well established company in the space that operates out of the Decentral space at King and Spadina. Hit me up.

      Hi, Anthony. You're welcome to post in our discussion board, but we usually reserve the comments section for messages about that particular meetup. You could also sponsor a JS Tech Talk night, which is a great way to get your pitch in front of JS devs.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
