About us

We are a JavaScript community that meets regularly in Austin, Texas, to discuss a wide range of topics, including:

  • The JavaScript language
  • JavaScript application frameworks
  • Server and client-side JavaScript
  • JavaScript on other people's sites
  • Testing
  • DevOps
  • Cryptography
  • How CSS colors got their names
  • JavaScript position openings

The group started back in 2009 and has been going strong ever since. For a taste of our rich history, take a peak at the meetup archives—they're full of videos and fascinating characters.

Meetings

We typically meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month somewhere deep in the heart of Austin, Texas — typically downtown. We’ll have a speaker or two, open things up for questions and discussion, and then head to a nearby watering hole to continue the networking and the conversations.

Excellence

We work hard to build a community of good natured and helpful people that treat each other with excellence. We’ve formalized what this means into our Code of Conduct.
