Details

We are relaunching the Philadelphia JavaScript Developers meetup starting in January and hope that you join us so we can all learn together. The first meetup will be Thursday, January 17th at 6pm and the February event announced then.

Philadelphia JavaScript Developers is an inclusive community where are all are welcome. This is an environment where people of any race, gender, class, age, and ability are genuinely cared about and welcomed to insure that everyone has the opportunity to be involved, to feel safe, and to have their voice amplified. We enforce a strict Code of Conduct which can be found below. This meetup is here so we can share our knowledge, help each other grow, and meet all kinds of people who have at least one thing in common: JavaScript! Working together we can make sure that people’s thoughts, opinions, and self-expression aren’t getting stepped on or put on display at their expense.

We commit to our attendees that not only will our format be inclusive but our speaker lineup will have equal representation of our underrepresented communities. We need your help. To have a truly diverse and interesting community we need speakers, lots of them. This community is about you, so come speak. We encourage everyone to speak, no matter their skill level with JavaScript or public speaking. We can help you find assistance in figuring out a topic, preparing your talk, and feeling comfortable with speaking. Anyone can give a talk and we will help you get there. The only guideline is that your talk must involve JavaScript in some way. If you'd like to speak or would like to nominate someone to speak, drop us a line at http://bit.ly/1tkLzGD

If you would like to get involved in organizing this meetup please reach out, as running a meetup is work and we will need support in the coming months. Being an organizer does not require any special expertise so if you want to help, message us.
