Did you know the Toronto JavaScript ( and JS Hack Night ( meetups are merging? It's true! You can sign up for this meetup either place, because it's THE SAME THING. See you there!

Hack nights are a time to slough off your workaday shackles and stretch the limits of what you can do in javascript. It's a chance to experiment with new tools and techniques, learn new paradigms and practices, commiserate and collaborate with fellow devs and make interesting things.

We work in small, self-assembled groups and we'll share our results at the end of the night.

It's important to have project ideas ahead of time, so please do the following:

1. subscribe to js weekly (

2. pick something interesting

3. post a comment about it here

Examples of interesting projects:

- try a framework: noflo, meteor, ~todomvc, etc

- try a library: q,, bilby, lemonad, etc

- try a language: fay, elm, roy, clojurescript, flapjax, etc

- try some web apis: audio, webgl, svg, webrtc, etc

- go parallel: workers, river trail, webcl, etc

We are beginner friendly. Here's some resources for getting up to speed with javascript:

Another great way to learn JS is by reading the source of good libraries -- underscore.js ( is a solid starting point.
