What we're about

STL JS is the first and largest JavaScript meetup in the St. Louis metro area. This meetup brings together developers from all backgrounds and of all skill levels to discuss the wonderfully divisive, ever-evolving, and incredibly universal lingua franca of the web: JavaScript.

Whether you're a full-time, full-stack JS software engineer who works in Node and React all day every day, or a beginning developer straight out of bootcamp who had to use a sprinkle of jQuery in your rails project, this meetup is for you.

We meet downtown once per month for a meetup that includes an opportunity to network with others in the St. Louis tech scene, instructional talks on JavaScript topics, "hackathon" project time, and more. We also have a discussion forum and mailing list, so you can participate all month long.

High-Octane Web Development With Ember.js

Second Street

Meetup starts at 6:30pm with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Second Street's Kerrick Long will present a tech talk about JavaScript: Ember.js is a front-end framework built for productivity, designed with developer ergonomics in mind. Companies like Microsoft, Netflix, LinkedIn, Square, and more use Ember.js to create ambitious applications with less time spent making trivial choices, so they can focus on what makes their app unique. And in case you haven't looked at Ember in a while, the new "Octane" edition has completely revitalized the framework, adopting best practices from ES2019, Vue, React, Rails, prior versions of Ember, and more. Starting about 8:15pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript, browsers, and node.js in general. Complimentary beer (21+ only), sodas, and pizza will be provided by this month's food sponsor, Second Street (https://secondstreet.com/careers). Come hungry, come thirsty, bring your laptop, and be ready to code! STL JS is dedicated to a harassment-free conference experience for everyone.
