What we're about

We're a friendly San Diego community that meets regularly to discuss JavaScript and the web. Join us at workshops, monthly lightning talk evenings, and many more focussed events throughout the year to hone your skills or get your feet wet.

We are open to developers, tinkerers, hobbyist, experts, and individuals that put themselves at any skill level. We are a welcome group that is guided by our Code of Conduct (http://sandiegojs.org/code-of-conduct) and the core value of being nice to one another.

Full-StackJS @ SDCS/Synergy

The Synergy Centre

Join us in Escondido at San Diego Code School inside Synergy Centre for an extended talk/live coding session. Come learn best practices from a Sr. Engineer as we build out "Peanut Butter and Jelly" - a new scaffolding tool that will allow users to quickly build an application with JavaScript. You'll gain an understanding of what full stack development is and how it's done. San Diego Code School will provide plenty of food and drinks. Speakers: Michael is the founder of San Diego Code School and a Board Member of San Diego JavaScript Community. He is a Fullstack JavaScript practitioner, primarily using the MERN stack (MongoDb, Express.js, React, Node.js). When he is not off riding double centuries on a bike, he enjoys teaching web development and building Javascript tools that empower developers to be more productive. Parking info: There is plenty of free parking either under/around the building or at street level on the East side of the building.

Fundamental JS

American Addiction Centers

On the 4th Wednesday of every month, FundamentalJS meets to learn about an element or building block of Javascript plus soft skills to help attendees get hired. Laptops are highly encouraged for the warmup code challenges. We are open to everyone coming in, from beginners who are learning the language to established coders who want to brush up on a concept. SCHEDULE 6:30 - Pizza, Code Challenges 7:00 - Pass by Value or Reference? (technical) 7:30 - Getting Past Tricky Interview Questions (soft skills) 8:00 - Burning Questions PARKING Unfortunately we cannot help with parking. Street parking is free after 6pm and you can park yellow commercial loading zones after 6 as well. There is also a paid ACE lot just north of the American Addiction Centers building. When you approach the entrance at the corner of the block, it's ok if the building looks empty: the meetup is upstairs. If no one is around to let you in, message @jasonland or @austingil on the SDJS slack and we'll send someone to let you in. We usually have someone watching the door until 7.
