Women's Javascript Study Group

Google Community Space

Note: Tonight's event is at Google's Community Space, so please double check the address! Overview We're a group of women who want to learn JavaScript together. We welcome people of all levels. Beginners are especially encouraged. You move at your own pace in this group, so it doesn't matter if you are a fast or slow learner, or if you attend every week. (You can use any study materials or work on personal side projects. Whatever you prefer to learn.) We now meet every Tuesday, 6:30 - 8:30pm. Format Meet us in the Workshop Room on the north end of Google's Community Space on the Embarcadero. There are just a few power outlets, so come charged if you can. We generally start introductions around 6:45pm and then work on coding problems or projects, independently or with others. Although the focus is on JavaScript, we also cover closely related topics such as HTML and CSS and other web technologies. There will typically be more experienced coders available to help beginners with what they are stuck on. (The only tools you need to start using JavaScript are a web browser and optionally a simple text editor or code editor.) WWCode events are intended for all women (trans and cis), trans men, and genderqueer folks who are interested in attending. We are emphatically queer and trans friendly and committed to matters of social justice as an organization. Anyone who shares our mission of empowering women and non-binary people in their tech careers are welcome to join. If you have any questions (or identify differently and want to attend), please message the Directors of this Network at [masked]. Please read and abide by our Code of Conduct (https://github.com/WomenWhoCode/guidelines-resources/blob/master/code_of_conduct.md)
