    What we're about

    We are a group of passionate developers, designers, students, hobbyists and other curious people based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. We usually have a meetup every other month, where we have talks, presentations and discussions on JavaScript and Web development in general.

    Our Code of Conduct is here:

    We meet at several regular venues around the City centre area. We cover JS and web dev fundamentals, frameworks, architecture, culture, tooling, browser internals, performance, UX, creative coding, game dev, and more.

    Our talk formats are a mixture of 'full length' talks (20-30 mins in length) and 'lightning talks' (5-10 mins), and we try to provide a mix of the two at every event. Occasionally we run an entire 'lightning round' session comprised solely of lightning talks. We are flexible in our approach - whatever works! Q&A is normally held after each talk, though this is at the discretion of the speaker.

    Whether you're a grizzled veteran, developing your skills, new to the industry, a hobbyist, student, looking for a career change, or just interested in general, you'll find something worth attending for - all within a friendly, relaxed and diverse group of people.

    Join us - all experience levels welcome! We are also always looking for new speakers, so if you fancy giving it a go, tell us!

    Follow us on Twitter at and hit us up with questions or requests to talk / topics you'd like to see covered!
