Hackfests are a chance for Javascript developers in Toronto to get together. The idea is to patch and release open source libraries, and help each other through tricky bugs. And spend time coding JavaScript.

Big Bang Technology will provide dinner, wireless, monitors, and comfortable chairs. We write code so bring a laptop and plan to have fun.

    From a JS newbie's perspective: be good enough that you work on something, anything, on your own. If you can pair, that's awesome, but if the level is to high then just be comfortable hacking away on something simple & ask others around you for help when need be.

    Definitely newbies are welcome. Just watch over someone's shoulder or bring a problem and ask an expert for assistance.

    I don't know but it shouldn't stop you from attending. Especially if you are interested in applying what you have learned in school.

    What is the required knowledge for newbies at this event?

    Javascript arrays are not fixed in size so don't worry about wasted memory. You can actually access the array at any index and get a value, with undefined being returned if nothing was assigned.

    In case someone else is as brain dead as me, I am advising that they google Javascript... it is different from Java. Duh. In my programming experience, I missed that word somewhere. They of course neglected to mention the difference until an hour into being there... Oh well. I noticed the array types in Javascript. They appear to be fixed array sizes. Does this mean that if you don't use the entire array or it doesn't fit your purposes that the memory allocated is wasted?
