Upcoming Events

are announced at meetup.com/Tacoma-JS/, other nodeschool events are announced at http://nodeschool.io/events.html.


Learn JavaScript & Node.js through interactive workshops run by volunteers! We present, code and discuss solutions.

NodeSchool events have been held around the world, and successfully introduce beginners to JavaScript, Node, and the command-line. We're excited to bring NodeSchool to Tacoma.

The in-person events give you a chance to learn in a collaborative environment, & also to help beginners if you already have JS/Node experience.

On the command line check to see if nodejs is installed:

$ node -v
$ v4.4.5   (for example)
If there is no version number you do not have NodeJS, see the complete list of install by package-manager instructions. If you are the super user admin for the machine, you can do something like:

$ curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -
$ sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
If you are NOT super user admin then see these instructions for installing nodejs without package manager.

If all of the above is a bit much just to start learning, then consider:
