What we're about
NOTE: We are currently looking for an Organizer to manage Provo. There will be no meetups in provo until one is found. The UNN meetup in SLC (http://www.meetup.com/utahnodejs/) is still active.
Utah web developers exploring different areas of Node.js such as making RESTful APIs and exploring popular libraries and frameworks.
NodeJS is emerging as a powerful platform for building Internet applications. As an emergent technology, NodeJS does not yet have the ensemble of tools and infrastructural parts that mature language systems have. The NodeJS community is relatively small, and we all need to learn from each other's efforts to work with it. The Utah Node.js Ninjas exist to foster interaction among NodeJS developers. The goals for this group are to build our local NodeJS developer community, encourage adoption of NodeJS by businesses in the area, and help people better understand and use NodeJS in applications, both for personal and business uses.
We have weekly meetings, alternating between presentations and hack nights. Hack nights also double as a beginners course, partnering with Nodeschool.io. Anyone interested in learning Node from the ground up is welcome to attend and learn with us!
