We'll have lightning talks by a few speakers on various topics (see list in Agenda section below).
With any leftover time, we'll do ExcuseJS, aka hacknight. This means bring your work or personal projects and work on them, and as you go, if you have questions, ask your peers. It's an enjoyable way to code socially and learn in a new way. It works because it's your code and you get personal attention, or you might end up learning more as you help others!

Ever wondered why your awesome method on your component isn't working, and realized it's because you forgot to bind it's 'this' context in the constructor? What even is 'this'? Come find out what's going on under the covers as we talk about how user defined methods work in ES6 classes.

6:50 - Announcements including job positions and job seekers
7:00 - Presentations, and then hack time
Have a job to fill or looking for a job?: to shorten the announcements portion of the meeting, we're going to show a slide or slides during the meet-n-greet portion of the meeting. The slide will have job announcements along with faces of who supplied the announcement, so that you can find that person and chat with them about the job. Just make sure you get the text and picture to Ty by lunch on the day of the meetup. Email it to me at [masked] . Your devlierable to Ty should be a SINGLE IMAGE with your picture AND text with dimensions 768x392, and I'll put it on a quarter of a slide, like this:
