Beer.js - New Year Kickoff!

The Birch Bar

It's time again to get together for another Beer.js at The Birch Bar in Norfolk, VA. This is a purely social event where JavaScript enthusiasts and their friends get together for lively conversation and sometimes a little project collaboration! Don't enjoy beer? The Birch also has great food and non-alcoholic options. There is a grilled cheese and beer-pairing special on Wednesday nights and you can order pizza from Chelsea Bakehouse to be delivered to your seat in The Birch Bar. Due to the restaurant hours and special events, this meet-up will be on a Wednesday evening instead of our usual Monday evening. There will be wi-fi, so feel free to bring your laptop and do some hacking while you enjoy the beverages.

Sharpen Your Saw IV - The Undiscovered JavaScript Framework

It's a Norfolk.js tradition! For our February meetup, we're bringing back Steve Hackbarth (now living in Boston) for the 6th annual "Sharpen Your Saw." Like previous years, Steve will be presenting a short talk on a topic in JavaScript and will then present a friendly challenge for the audience. Be sure to bring a laptop and be prepared to tackle a short and fun challenge. Stay tuned for this year's topic! Steve Hackbarth has been leading the Javascript lifestyle since 2012, when he turned in his Java boots to join the now-legendary xTuple web rewrite, first as a developer and then as head of software development. In 2015, Steve moved from Norfolk to Boston and co-founded Ursa Health, a healthcare analytics startup. See what Steve's up to now at Ursa Health: https://www.ursahealth.com Agenda: • 6:00 pm - Talk, eat, drink (come hungry!!). • 6:15 pm - Announcements • 6:30 pm - Featured Speaker Steve Hackbarth. • 7:30 pm - Closing, awards, more food/drink. **Please take a minute to read our Code of Conduct (https://github.com/norfolkjs/general-info/blob/master/CODEOFCONDUCT.md)
