Bloomberg is hosting a gathering of developers, students, and others from around the Node.js community to spend a weekend learning how to work on Node.js and other projects in the Node ecosystem. This event is intended to help new community members get started learning how to contribute, how to work on the code, and get their first patches written and submitted.
The event will be on Saturday and Sunday, October 1-2, 2016, in both London (UK) and New York City (US). Bloomberg is providing the space, food, beverages, travel/lodging for mentors, and the organization of the event, so attendees only need to bring their laptops (with power adapters!) and a willingness to learn and contribute. At both locations there will be experienced mentors on hand to provide guidance.
Attendees at this event, and anyone who wants to chat with them, should use channel #bbgweekend on Freenode.
If you talk about this event on Twitter, please tag Tech At Bloomberg (@techatbloomberg) in your tweets.
We’ll use a Trello board to track projects and activities throughout the weekend, so if you’re not already familiar with Trello, spend a few minutes to learn it (it’s easy!).
Venue and Catering
The event will be held at CodeNode, which is located near the Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations. The entrance is on South Place, where someone at reception will assist you with registration. From there, make your way down the stairs on your right to the Space Bar. Here you will be directed to breakfast and to the ALT/TAB rooms where you can setup your laptop.
On both days, breakfast and lunch will be provided; on Saturday, dinner will also be provided. We’ll provide omnivore and vegetarian friendly options, but if you have other requirements, be prepared to make alternate arrangements for meals. On Saturdays there are some shops open in the area around CodeNode, but none of them are open on Sundays, so you’d need to travel some distance away to find a place to purchase food.
Code of Conduct
Participation in this event is subject to Bloomberg’s Event Code of Conduct.
