Details

Hacktoberfest (https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/) focused event.

"Hacktoberfest® is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code, event host, or company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge."

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.
