Are you interested in learning or growing your programming skills with Node.js? If so please join us for this free NodeSchool event! You’ll get hands-on experience in a highly collaborative and interactive environment. Our sponsors will be providing free food and beverages, so you’ll only need to bring yourself and your laptop.

Our July event will focus on learning the basics of using React.js with Node.js. Let's learn React.js and server side rendering!

About NodeSchool

NodeSchool is a friendly way to learn JavaScript and Node.js programming together with other people. If you have a laptop and already know some other programming language, this is a nice way to learn JavaScript and get to know the community. The NodeSchool Chicago chapter gathers together monthly.

How does it work?

The website has lists the available Workshoppers - interactive tutorials that you can run in your own pace. The mentors are available for help and chit-chat whenever you need. You can join the event for learning, or just meeting the fellow JavaScripters. We usually work in pairs or small groups of people on a similar skill level - together it is more fun, and you learn better.

No previous Node.js experience required - if you already know the basics of JavaScript or any other programming language, you are good to go!

Call for Students

Install Node.js ( and some of the workshoppers ( before the event. Just in case anything goes wrong, we can help you in the event, or through our Slack.

Call for Mentors

NodeSchool is a largely self-paced way of learning, but without tutors bridging unavoidable gaps a lot of the benefits of the common space is lost. The more tutors we can reach, the more fun it will be
