Presentations begin at 7:30pm. We feature 2 awesome speakers that bring you the best that Portland (and beyond) has to offer in Node & JavaScript.

This month we are featuring two amazing speakers from the Portland community: Daniel Lemay and Sarah Joy Calpo.

Daniel will be presenting "Build Better and Discoverable APIs with GraphQL". He will be helping us to learn what solutions GraphQL brings to our increasingly complex and interconnected data needs.

Sarah Joy will be showing us how to publish an NPM package and make it easily accessible via CDN using UNPKG in her talk titled, "Publishing your first NPM package".

Open dialogue during the presentations is very welcome–we're all here to learn!

The organizers will be available to help any newcomers with getting started. If you need help installing node and npm, or have questions or anything–please reach out.

Before our first talk we'll engage in a friendly Node quiz! Prizes include awesome learning materials sponsored by Cloudflare (eg. Books like "Effective JavaScript" by David Herman, and "Node.js in Action" by Harter, Cantelon, Rajlich, and Holowaychuk).

Our talks cover a variety of topics, presented by people with varying levels of experience. Some of our most recent speakers have been: Max Ogden, Substack, Chris Dickinson, Ben Acker, and more.

Afterwards, if you're stoked to keep hangin' we regularly take our discussions onward to post-talk drinks nearby! We may even hack a little if the night is young!

People who're new to programming and new friends to the Node community are very welcome! Say hi, make some noise, get to know folks, and ask questions!
