Atlanta JavaScript Meetup

I guess I'd never really thought about it. Would you consider JavaScript to be Open Source? Well, Firefox supports it and Firefox is Open Source. Most of the Javascript libraries out there (JQuery, Moo, Prototype, etc) are open source. Even the EXT JS library has a GPL v3 version. So I guess I'll have to say that it's open. Anyway, there's a new JavaScript meetup forming. At the moment they haven't decided on a place to meet, and their charter is a bit thin: Meet other local JavaScripters to share knowledge, to review the state of the art, or to dream up new applications. But follow along, sign up and be there! See: The Atlanta JavaScript Meetup Page.

    This is a Hands-on React workshop as part of a collaboration with React ATL ( The workshop is designed for developers who are proficient with JavaScript but are new or newish to React. We have arranged to have an instructor as well as a number of TAs to come and teach. Cost is free. Space is limited, so please reserve a spot in advance if you want to come. BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop).

    In the following week, React ATL ( will follow up with an event of their own, to dig into a more advanced topic in React: Comparing render props vs Higher Order Components. More information on that is to come.

    React ATL is a monthly meetup discussing and covering all things React, and is one of the best ways to get involved in the React community. Their meetings are usually held in Ponce City Market.
