  • Updates and Hack Night!

    Main Library, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85719

    A lot has been happening behind the scenes here at Web Stackers (good things). As you can see we have a new venue, but we also have a bunch more updates to share. We figured the best format would be to pass along all the updates, then just do some social hacking. We can't wait to see everyone!

  • Serverless Infrastructure Workshop

    Connect Coworking

    This workshop will walk you through the creation of a “serverless” API using AWS Lambda, API Gateway and other services! Bring your laptop and be sure to set up an AWS account (https://aws.amazon.com/free/) (requires a credit or debit card) beforehand to reduce the amount of time it will take to get started. Don’t worry though, all the resources created in the workshop fall will fall under the AWS Free Tier. Beer and non-alchoholic drinks will be provided by us! Want to present or lead a workshop at an upcoming Web Stackers meetup? Let Richard or Eric know during a meetup or send us a message via the organizer’s contact button. If you need an idea for a topic, we can help with that too! Getting to the meetup by car: Connect is right in downtown Tucson, so if you are not biking, taking the bus, streetcar, or dirigible you are probably coming by automobile. Downtown street parking in metered spots is free after 5pm, but may be limited. (Should you find a spot on the street, please be careful not to block the streetcar!) Your best bet may be the Depot Plaza Garage (45 N 5th Ave). Check out the city’s parking guide (https://www.tucsonaz.gov/park-tucson/where-can-i-park-downtown) for more info.

  • Lightning Talks! (The First Web Stackers Meetup!)

    Connect Coworking

    Eric will kick things off with a quick talk on a totally not divisive topic: “Are Semi-Colons in JavaScript Useful?” Richard plans to follow that up with some insights into JavaScript's type system, which we are told is very interesting. Afterwards, everyone who is interested to can give their own quick presentation (about 5 minutes or so) related to web development, show off their latest web project, or even just kick off a discussion about a web development question or problem you might be facing. It’s all good! Beer and non-alchoholic drinks will be provided by us! Want to present or lead a workshop at an upcoming Web Stackers meetup?
