DCJS Playday - February 2019 edition

Politico

This event is all about javascript! We will support folks that want to learn Node.js or plain old javascript via NodeSchool modules (http://nodeschool.io/) but it is expanding to support all the javascript frameworks as well! (React.js, Angular.js, Vue.js,...) So bring your side projects and come ready to learn and hack on things. This is a community event where you can help others learn your framework of choice or you can get assistance (based on the attendees skills). We can suggest tutorials or workshops to get you started if you don't have a side project. There will be a few organizers and mentors that can help with javascript in general and likely support with most frameworks. Come out and get to know the local DCTech javascript community members, help others and get a helping hand. There will likely be photos taken at the event, please let the organizers know if this is something you would like to opt out of. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ENTRANCE DETAILS -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enter at 1100 Wilson Blvd - inside the entrance is a cafe and a CVS.

DCJS[67] - NPM Scripts as a Build Process with Antoinette Janus

Join us on March 14 to hear Antoinette Janus speak about using npm scripts as a build process! Webpack is great, but learning is a time intensive process. The more intensive development becomes, the easier our build processes should be. Currently this isn't the case. But build processes don't have to be insane. Enter NPM Scripts. We'll talk about what NPM Scripts are, how to incorporate them into your build system, and how to clean your webpack configs. You may learn that you may not need webpack at all. Antoinette runs CodePenDC Meetup, is an avid coffee consumer, and prefers fried chicken over everything (minus dogs). ******************************** SPONSOR SHOUTOUT: We need sponsors!
