What we're about

NodeSchool San Francisco 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!

Bring a laptop, a desire to learn, and all your friendship!

What actually happens at a NodeSchool SF event?

NodeSchool SF events are an opportunity to hang out with other learners and mentors in a low stress, encouraging environment. Get set up to work on lessons with real industry tools on your own computer, at your own pace. A typical event follows this schedule:

• 1:00 - Doors open
• 1:15 - Introduction and opening announcements
• 1:40-5:00 - Learning/mentoring
• 3:00ish - Pizza! pizza emoji
• 5:00 - Event ends

What is a Focused Session?

Focused Sessions happen during our NodeSchool events. While our general event is free-form and self-directed, our Focused Sessions are more of a lecture-style format led by a mentor on special topics. We don't always have Focused Sessions, so keep an eye on our website and Twitter for announcements!

How much does it cost to attend?

NodeSchool SF is free! And open source!

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!

More questions?

File an issue at our GitHub repo (https://github.com/nodeschool/sanfrancisco/issues) and we'll answer as soon as possible.
