What we're about

Have you ever thought about learning to code but weren't sure how to get started? Let's meet and explore the fundamentals of programming, including how to write code as well as how to develop an attitude that will enable us to quickly learn new technologies. Each meetup will be led by an expert who will guide us in a new skill or concept, and help us get started with programming, whether as a career or as a hobby. Here are some example workshops: • HTML / CSS Workshop: Let's build a website • Web Dev 101 Workshop • Intro to Javascript • Intro to Angular JS We will also host some intermediate to advanced workshops. All levels are welcome to attend :)

JavaScript: To ES6 and Beyond

The Gathering Spot

*** Please RSVP on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/javascript-to-es6-and-beyond-tickets-53019725426?aff=Meetup *** What the heck are all these arrows (=>) and dollar signs (`Hello ${name}`) doing in this new JS code I’m seeing? What’s with these objects with no value pairs? JavaScript is constantly improving, and with it comes syntax changes and new operations we may not have seen before. With ES6, we’re able to do more while writing less code and making it cleaner and more concise. Join us as we explore this exciting new syntax, including let/const, template strings, and arrow functions, and work through hands-on challenges together. This is an intermediate level workshop, so familiarity with JavaScript basics is needed. And be sure to bring your laptop!
