Austin All-Girl Hack Night: Javascript study night

Wed, June 10, 7pm – 9pm

At our last meeting we decided on the format and approach for the Javascript study group. The Javascript study will take place at the All Girl Hack Night meetings. That doesn’t mean that All Girl Hack Night will be limited to Javascript from now on. We will occasionally have presentations and study sessions on other technical topics. Though we will start out studying “vanilla” Javascript to get the understanding of the fundamentals of this language, we will also sometimes dive deeper into various frameworks.
