Atlanta Node.js November Meeting

Nov 17, 2016 · Atlanta, United States of America

Hello Peeps!

We have another great meeting planned for you this month!

Brenton Strine will present 

How to Learn (or Teach) Programming

Beginner Javascript courses often start with details of the language like syntax and variable types. We think of these as the most challenging aspects for a beginner, but they don't have to be. By ignoring details that can be looked up, it's possible to teach Javascript from the beginning with a focus on algorithm-writing to accomplish tasks--which is more motivating and leads students automatically along the path of learning.

Brenton Strine began teaching himself web development in High School before he had internet access by copying tutorials from the library computers onto floppy disc and taking them home to complete. Without formal guidance or education, the road to employment was long and arduous, though he eventually found developer jobs at places like Citrix, Amazon, JPL, and recently, MailChimp. His experience learning things the wrong way has motivated him to teach web development to beginners through online courses (, CodeCademy, Skillshare) and in-person workshops.

After  Brenton's presentation, Joseph DeCarlo will moderate

Open Spaces

Open Spaces is a discussion format that allows attendees to vote on and participate in conversations on topics chosen by the audience. It is a great way for you to talk about or just learn about a topic that you chose.  It also allows other audience members to share their expertise.


Afterwards, we will meet at a nearby restaurant for drinks and food.


The Ponce City Market parking lot is not free - so be prepared.  There are machines to purchase parking both in the lot and in the building at the bottom of the stairs.  YOU WILL NEED YOUR LICENSE PLATE NUMBER - so don’t forget to get that info before leaving your vehicle.  There is also an app to make purchasing parking easier.

See you there!
