What we’re about

Omaha jQuery MeetupFormerly known as  (2009) and Omaha Front-End Web & jQuery (2011).

NebraskaJS was founded in fall of 2009 as the Omaha jQuery Meetup and was renamed in 2011 to the Omaha Front-End Web & jQuery Meetup to broaden its scope. In 2012, group leadership duties were passed on to Zach Leatherman and the group renamed to NebraskaJS as focus shifted toward JavaScript in general. Nick Nisi joined mid-2013 primarily to get more JavaScript developers to use Vim and Justin Baker joined in 2016 to continue NebraskaJS Lincoln.

Our goals:

    Encourage open source/community contributions by our members. A portion of every meeting is dedicated to small lightning talks on GitHub issues that members in the community have contributed to/closed out (no issue too small!).

    Sharing workflow and useful tools. Small coding exercises dedicated to showing how others work can expose useful tips and tricks to separate the wheat from the chaff in development tooling.

    All presentations are recorded and published online, in the hopes that it will improve the quality of presentations and offer nice exposure and incentive to present.

We seek to bring together the developer and designer community in and around Omaha and cover interesting topics relevant to front-end web development. Come join us for an informative event and a great community!
