Details

NodeBots Day is world wide event where people learn how to control the physical world with JavaScript. We want you to leave with the satisfaction of making something awesome! Each event has experts on hand to help you build your project and start you on the path to building awesome devices. Overall we're going to get together, collaborate and hack. The focus of NodeBots Day is on sharing and enjoying each other's company and JavaScript. Lots of JavaScript.

This year PDXNode and Women Who Code Portland are joining forces to host an awesome NodeBots Day in Portland! Continuing in the spirit of the international NodeBots Day event, this is not a hackathon, there will be no prizes. It's about spending a day in an amazing workshop with good people and tinkering, hacking and generally putting tools where hardware would rather you didn't. Women Who Code Portland will be providing some hardware at the event, but feel free to bring your own!

Help is available: wherever you may be in your NodeBot hacking career! There will be seasoned Nodesters ready and available to help anyone with questions or advice throughout the event. Feel free to reach out and ask at any time. NodeBots also has a online chat community where you can connect to other hackers around the world who are also exploring.
