NodeSchool Chicago - January - Test Anything!

  • WeWork 20 West Kinzie Street Chicago, IL, 60654 United States (map)

Join us to learn how to Test Anything! Tests are an important part of any growing codebase. They help us to make sure that code behaves as expected, and they serve as the first line of defense from code changes that may break existing features in the applications we build.

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 nodeschool.io (https://nodeschool.io/) 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!
