What we're about

We are looking for a sponsor!

**
NodeSchool East Bay is just getting started. We are hoping to have our first meeting in February or March. Join the group to get notified.
**
NodeSchool East Bay is a new chapter NodeSchool (https://nodeschool.io/) and is replacing TriValley Coders (https://www.meetup.com/trivalleycoders/) which was established in 2016 and held 172 successful meetings.
**
We are looking for a sponsor that will provide space, pizza and soda/water. Our attendees will be beginner through advanced software developers who participate as either learners or mentors. Many attendees are looking for new opportunities. If you would like to sponsor us one or more times please contact Carl via Meetup message.
**
NodeSchool East Bay is a monthly meetup dedicated to helping people learn JavaScript. We help people of all skill levels, from beginners to experts, discover what's possible with JavaScript. Bring yourself, your computer, and the desire to learn to our next event!
**
NodeSchool East Bay events are an opportunity to hang out with other learners and mentors in a low stress, encouraging environment. Instead of the usual follow-along, presentation-driven workshops, learners can either work on self-paced workshoppers or hack on their own side projects. There isn't a structured “curriculum” which must be followed.

How do I become a mentor?

We're always looking for people to volunteer to be mentors! We ask that prospective mentors:

• Have already completed the core NodeSchool workshoppers before the event.

• Having also completed some elective workshoppers is a great bonus.

• Review the Mentor Best Practices wiki page.

• Arrive 30 minutes early (12:30p) so we can get setup and have our mentor meeting.

• Sign up on the event's GitHub issue.!
