Get your first (or second or third) meaningful contribution submitted to a popular and important open source project like node.js, under the expert guidance of experienced collaborators in the Code+Learn at our next meetup.

Javascript has remained the most popular programming language for the fifth year in a row, with Node.js being the most popular web framework. Top companies (Netflix, Uber, NASA ...) are building amazing apps, with almost a million re-usable libraries available in the Node.js ecosystem. So investing in Node.js / Javascript skills is an obvious advantage for your short and long term career goals. And having a set of significant contributions to the node core project in your GIT profile, will be a key differentiator on your resume. So what are you waiting for? Register now for the code+learn.

The Node.js code & learn ( )is a platform for you to get on-boarded as a contributor on to the node,js core project. Come with your laptop and programming skills and leave as a node.js contributor, ready to build a strong contribution portfolio.
