Boulder JS

While there are some great groups in town that discuss a bunch of cool languages, there wasn't one that focused specifically on the language that you and I both love, JavaScript. Until now. These are fascinating times for JavaScript development, and this group will attempt to explore topics including, but by no means limited to: * the power of raw JavaScript; * Ajax; * libraries like jQuery and Prototype; * techniques for building your own library; * server-side JavaScript with Node.js; * optimization techniques; * test-driven development; * and so much more! We're a friendly group and we welcome developers of all skill levels, beginner to expert. We want to foster an environment where it's okay to ask questions and it's okay not to know about certain aspects of the language. We're willing to share what we know, and are open to learning from others.

Events coming up

We don't have any upcoming events for this user group. Do you know this group? If so, why not submit a future event? We also support iCal, EventBrite and Meetup feeds.
