Women's Javascript Study Group

  • Mar 12, 2014 · 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 is exclusively open to people who identify as female.

    I have the same question as Lisa. Can anyone just hop in and join? How many weeks long is this meetup? Does it start over at some point? Thanks!

      Hi Marta, this is an open-ended study group rather than a class, so you can start any time. Just make sure you get in -- we can't take people off the waitlist.

    Hi - can I come even though I'm on the waitlist?

      Please wait until you are moved up to the attendee list. We often have people cancel closer to the meeting time when other commitments come up. We only have a limited amount of space our host allows to us.

    I am sorry I will be missing the meetup tonight. I will be there next week with bells on. Enjoy!

    RSVPs open up closer to the meetup date. The meetup is on-going and normally meets every week on Wednesday nights. (March 5th was canceled only because I will be out of town.) You are welcome to join in any time. The focus is on self study so we have new members join all the time in addition to regular attendees.
