Web Development 101

This week, we will pair up on the mini-projects listed in the Web Development 101 section of the curriculum, though of course you're welcome to work together on any of the other tutorials and modules in that section.  See Prep Work below.

Prep Work

Try to get through as much as you can before this meetup so you can be on the same page as everyone else:

1. Work through the Web Development 101 section of the curriculum.  There's a lot to do there and it will take some time, so I wouldn't expect you to finish it up unless you've got a pretty good head start on things.

2. Make a contribution or fix a bug on the curriculum.  It doesn't have to be anything major at all but this will give you practice at making contributions to open source projects.  See the section called "Contributing" on the curriculum's main page.

3. Sign up for the forum/mailing list on Google Groups if you'd like.

4. Keep pairing up with each other whenever you can!  The Pairing Scheduling Document has been underused but we'll be replacing it with something a bit more robust shortly.

General Things

This meetup follows the curriculum listed at github.com/TheOdinProject/curriculum.  Each week, we'll be facilitating opportunities to pair with other students on the projects of the curriculum and to ask questions.  We will not be doing formal instruction.

You cannot learn web development in just a couple hours per week at a meetup -- you need to put in the time and effort outside this group to tackle the curriculum and find other students to pair with on the projects using the remote-pairing tools we've laid out.  Our goal is to give you the path forward (via the curriculum) and help you identify the other students with whom you'd like to take this journey.  The rest is up to you!

 

See you there!

      Nope, canceled this week. Can meet up at Ritual Coffee Roasters in the Mission if you'd like, but it's very unofficial.

      July 10, 2013

  • Jeff L.

    I will still stop by the coffee shop

      See the above -- canceling this week officially but going to meet up at Ritual Coffee in the Mission unofficially

      July 10, 2013

  • Erik T.

    Hey, I'm terribly sorry but I haven't been able to nail down a location despite the effort so I think it makes sense to cancel the official meetup until next week. It sucks but at least the material is all online and you're able to pair up remotely on it.

    I'm going to head down to Ritual Coffee Roasters on 21st and Valencia to work at 6:30 and anyone is welcome to join -- there's a fair bit of space there (though it may be busy) so we can call it the "unofficial meetup". I'm also putting some more times on the pairing tool when I'll be available to work with people over the next few days and I'll start reaching out to those with whom I overlap. I hope you'll be willing to pair up!

  • Kevin K.

    wow there is a TON of prelim work - must i have gone through all gazallion hours of prep to even show up?

    1 · July 9, 2013

    • Erik T.

      Nope, it just helps get people on the same page. We will have people working on a variety of different projects anyway, so it never hurts to just show up! (wherever we end up)

    Also, if you'd like to schedule time to pair with each other between meetups (including before this one), I've put up the initial pair scheduling tool on the website at http://www.theodinproject.com/scheduler. You'll have to sign up, but otherwise it should be intuitive... just put down whichever times you're available and which projects you want to work on. Reach out to anyone who overlaps with you directly and follow the suggestions in the pairing section of the curriculum.

      Hi Erik, having issues with the scheduler tool. I tried to put in my times available as 3:30 to 7:00 on Saturday but it looks pretty funky. Any advice?

      July 9, 2013

    • Erik T.

      I'm fascinated by how that might have happened. If you shoot me an email at [masked] we can get to the bottom of things.

    I am so excited for this meetup! I'm driving in from the North Bay, if anybody is interested in carpooling let me know!

    July 6, 2013

    • Dave D.

      As someone who used to live in the North Bay, I'd suggest driving to a Bart station and taking a train into the city. See you there!

  • Erik T.

    Hey everyone, I'm following up with Noisebridge soon but otherwise have not found a venue yet so if you know any place that could host us, let me know. All it takes is chairs and wifi!

    hey guys, if you are still looking for a space to host the event, Dungeon Labs, noisebridge.net and Hack Reactor are close to BART lines. i went to a JS meetup and Hack Reactor was so nice, hosted it for free.
