Summer of Hacks #1: NodeSchool

NodeSchool is a collection of workshops that help you learn and improve your JavaScript by writing code and solving challenges.

Who is this event for? Everyone!

• I've never programmed JavaScript. The workshops start from scratch, no programming experience required. We have some helpful volunteers to help you throughout the day.

• I know some JavaScript. Excellent, you're in the right place too. There are some more advanced themes to work through.

• I know all of that!. Even better! NodeSchool is an open source project, so we can build up some new materials. We've got some ideas, or come along with your own.

What does the day look like?

• 09:30 Arrive, drink coffee and eat pastries

• 10:00 We'll get started

• 13:00 Lunch!

• 17:00 Finish up and head to bar/cafe for post-event celebrations

When we get set up you'll have the chance to pair up with another attendee or embark on a workshop on your own. We'll have mentors on-hand to help if you get stuck or give you suggestions on workshops you might like.


We'll be providing pastries from a local patisserie, and a burrito lunch. You'll get to build your own burrito/box. We'll also have a selection of fruits and snacks, teas and coffees.

If you have any concerns, questions or special dietary requirements (or any questions whatsoever) please get in touch with us beforehand so we can cater appropriately.

What isn't this event?

This isn't a competition, race or hackathon. There will be no prizes, other than basking in your own glory as you learn new things, meet new people, and have a good time.

I have a question

Great! You can reach out to any of the JSOxford organisers:

• Ryan Brooks,[masked]

• Ben Foxall,[masked]

• Pete West

What will I need?

You'll need a laptop and charger (or a swanky laptop that'll last the day). If you don't have access to a laptop (or a friend you can drag along with one), let us know and we'll do our best to sort you out.

You’ll need Node.js on your computer to get started, and if you have a chance to install it before the event you'll be able to get started straight away.

Code of Conduct

We're committed to making JSOxford events fun, interesting and accessible. As part of that and to ensure that everyone feels welcome, all attendees, sponsors, and volunteers at our events are required to agree to our Code of Conduct.

    Thanks for a fantastic meet up. It's so nice to have a quiet space where you can just focus on learning/getting things done. Would certainly attend more like it!

    Hi, I'm so sorry to cancel last minute I was on my way and I realised I'm so drained from work this week I can't stand even coding for fun today. I hope I won't cause you any trouble.
