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.

    Free office hours for programming help, all skill levels. Not just JavaScript either. The format is super simple: you come with your laptop, sit and hang out and code, and flag down one of the organizers if you have a question. That's it! If we can't answer your question, we'll find you someone who can, or at least point you in the right direction.

    This is a meetup for people learning to code. Experienced developers are more than welcome, though - we appreciate the help!

    Getting Help Online
    You can always get help online at in the channels #javascript and #beginners_and_mentors and lots of other channels related to the topic that's relevant to you.
