Javascript, web technologies, and community building on the fourth Tuesday of every month at The Urban Hive.

Thanks for coming!
Sunday, June 26


The Urban Hive
1931 H Street, Sacramento, CA, 95811

NodeSchool is an event that helps people new to JavaScript, Node.js, or programming in general get comfortable with self directed lessons. It is a group learning experience, where people of all skill levels come together to strengthen their understanding of JavaScript.

For more information, check out the main NodeSchool website.

NOTE: It is highly encouraged that you have Node pre-installed prior to coming to the event. This helps you hit the ground running and frees up our mentors to focus on helping through workshop issues and not installation issues.
