Boulder JavaScript Study Group (with Michelle from Strava!)


Join us for a very special JavaScript Study Group featuring a lightning talk and Q&A with Michelle Willcox from Strava!

Strava, the #1 app for runners and cyclists, recently opened a new office in Denver and is committed to elevating women in tech! Michelle has been a web engineer at Strava for about a year and comes from a background in enterprise software and coding bootcamp instruction. The web engineers at Strava are currently in the process of rebuilding the Backbone and Coffeescript frontend to utilize more modern javascript technologies such as React, Webpack, and ES6 to improve our performance, testability, and code organization.

Where: Galvanize (1023 Walnut St., Boulder)

Everyone is welcome, no matter what level. The meetup is focused on individual projects and questions. Don't have a project you're working on? No problem, we'd love for you to come anyway. Start a group project with other meetup attendees. Brush up on your JS skills. Use our resource guide, google, and each other to create something awesome. Or just come to hang out and meet people!

6pm : Arrive, socialize, grab some snacks
6:15pm - 6:30pm : Welcome/announcements
6:30 - 7pm: Lightning talk, code-along
7pm - 8pm : Project work, individual/group study/networking
