Beginner Track

Advanced Track

We'd like to foster an environment for discussion and collaboration. To facilitate this we encourage people to bring projects/ideas to show off and discuss

Carbon Five ( developer Rudy Jahchan will be showing off vimTronner, a multiplayer Tron game that trains you in vim navigation

We usually eat, drink and mingle until around 6:30 when we officially get started with introductions


Leave a comment about what you're working on, any CoffeeScript projects you may be bringing with you, etc. so others can see what you're up to
