Women's Javascript Study Group

  • Dec 4, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Overview

We're a group of women who want to learn JavaScript together. We welcome people of all levels, but 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.

We meet every Wednesday, 6:30 - 9pm. Free (non-pizza) dinner included, with gluten-free and vegetarian options.

Please be punctual - we go upstairs at 6:30pm sharp. We check the lobby once more at 6:45pm for latecomers but if you will be later than 6:45pm, please skip the group. We have to come down from the 6th floor to the lobby to get latecomers, so it's disruptive to dinner and coding to do so.


Format

Our meetings begin with yummy food catered by our host, Zoosk, and we eat with Zoosk employees (some of whom can answer JS questions!). Afterwards, we have a short discussion or a presentation on a related topic when scheduled, then all hop on our laptops and work on JavaScript tutorials and help each other when we get stuck. Most of us are using codecademy.com, but we welcome other tools. Although the focus is on JavaScript, we also cover closely related topics such as HTML and CSS.

(The only tools you need to start using JavaScript are a web browser and optionally a simple text editor or code editor.)


Venue

Thanks to Zoosk, our wonderful sponsor, for the food, space, and support.

Our entrance is to the right of the Blick Art Supply Store on Market Street, one block southwest of Powell Street BART and the Westfield Mall. If you're afraid of the dark, no worries -- we can all walk to BART/Muni together afterwards. Just go on in (or knock if it's locked), and a friendly Zoosker (Beth or Kristin) will meet you in the lobby.

 

PS - If you want to come but don't have a laptop, just RSVP with a note and we'll try to find one for you.

This event was created for people who identify as female.

    Hey everyone, there's going to be a free beginner web development workshop on Saturday the 14th. It's led by Sacha Greif, one of the authors of Discover Meteor (one of the best app development ebooks I've read). http://www.meetup.com/Meteor-SFBay/events/153719612/

    Everyone will build a Meteor app from scratch, and no previous Meteor experience is required. HTML/CSS/JS familiarity is recommended but not required. You'll get free access to the 1st 6 chapters of the book, and the workshop will use a web IDE so any machine is ok (Mac, Windows, etc). It's a pretty special opportunity because Sacha's one of the best-respected people in the Meteor community, and he's only in town a few weeks (he lives in Japan). It's probably gonna fill to capacity quickly, and I'd love to see more women there, so help me spread the word! :-)

    I'm sorry for the short notice but I'm feeling a bit pre-flu. So I'm going to go home to prevent from it becoming a "full on, show no mercy" flu. :-) See you guys next week.
