Details

Meetup starts at 6:30pm with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Second Street's Kerrick Long will present JavaScript Promises:

JavaScript Promises have come a long way in the last few years, from a community project with a few libraries to test things out to a first-class citizen of the JavaScript language with syntactic sugar to make working with them even easier. Learn how to create, consume, and use promise chains, and then learn how to make it even easier with the new `async` and `await` keywords!

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 sandwiches 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!
