What we're about

A JavaScript Meetup group on Long Island.

The Long Island JavaScript Group is a space for JavaScript enthusiasts or newcomers interested in learning the language. We strive to provide an inclusive space for people of all skill levels by covering a range of topics around the JavaScript ecosystem.

There is no cost to attend our events. If you’d like to show support, please leave our group a review on Meetup! If you still want to do more, snacks and beverages are always appreciated. Additionally, we are always interested in presenters. If you are interested in presenting a topic around the JavaScript ecosystem, please let any of the organizers know and we would love to talk with you more.

We meet on the last Wednesday of the month at LaunchPad in Huntington, NY.

TypeScript & React

LaunchPad Huntington

This Meetup will follow up our two-part 'Intro to TypeScript" series by exploring how TypeScript and React can work together to build solid front-end applications. We will update this description with more concrete details closer to the scheduled Meetup date. Food and beverages will not be provided but there are plenty of great places to eat within walking distance. You are also welcome to bring food with you. LaunchPad is located in downtown Huntington. There is usually plenty of free parking in the rear parking lot as well as rear access to the building. Look for a glass door with the LaunchPad sign next to the Bon Bons Chocolatier and take the elevator up to the second floor. If the front door is locked, please go to the rear door as it should always be unlocked. If you are still not able to get in, please call or text[masked]. We look forward to seeing you there!

Web Animation with GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) and React

This month we're going to be diving into GSAP - a JavaScript animation library. We'll be going over the basics of the API/working with a simple React project to look at how React and GSAP interact. However, you don't need to know React to understand the basics of GSAP. To get an idea of what this library is, here's a short description from https://greensock.com: "Think of GSAP as the Swiss Army Knife of javascript animation...but better. It animates anything JavaScript can touch (CSS properties, canvas library objects, SVG, generic objects, whatever) and it solves countless browser inconsistencies, all with blazing speed (up to 20x faster than jQuery), including automatic GPU-acceleration of transforms." Food and beverages will not be provided but there are plenty of great places to eat within walking distance. You are also welcome to bring food with you. LaunchPad is located in downtown Huntington. There is usually plenty of free parking in the rear parking lot as well as rear access to the building.
