What we're about

The BocaJS group is here to represent the best that South Florida can bring to the world's best Language (Javascript). And any else web related as well!

In addition to vanilla java script, we'll be looking at frameworks such as Node, AngularJS (1, 1.5 AND 2,4,5,6,.... 7 beta? ), Ember.js, jQuery, ReactJS and Ionic.

Founded in September 2014 by Adam & Hector, and Run currently by Damian Montero and Jermbo Lawson this group continues to grow and thrive.

This month as always, on the first of the month, We'll meetup to discussion different topics, have free pizza and drinks and listen from great speakers. This month we'll be without our main organizer (Damian Montero) which will be searching for himself in Machu Picchu, but I'm sure he'll find himself enough for the event at the end of the month. Our amazing co-organizer Jermbo will take the reins so be prepared to see the kind of amazing event that he usually runs up in Palm Beach for Palm Beach JS. As always our amazing sponsors; Gravity IT Resources will be providing you with Pizza and Drinks and MORE importantly... FREE CASH for anyone you pass on to them that they find a job for.
