    I might get in on this, Rob asked me about doing this with him a day or two ago. Maybe by then I'll be able to do JS a little better and make something cool

    @Lilyheart
    You can use as little or as much JS as you want!

    Hey all!

    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    It was amazeballs
    @vidman22_twitter @dcpking_twitter @davidjcastner @Alexander-Huh @angelinasimms and three others (if my math is right here - Kevin, Rich and Johan) all came together for an incredible meeting. We nearly filled the room. Nine people total

    @Lilyheart
    None of the above!
    All 5 new people came from seeing the post on Meetup.
    I even met a fellow pebble watch user! Only second person I've seen "in the wild" @vidman22_twitter !

    I'll let others chime in about what was covered as I spend most of the time going over MontCode and getting people set up with FreeCodeCamp.

    If you would have come it would have tied!

    @rmaylie9560
    I know, i wanted to come. i was bummed i missed it. The graduation was kind of lame.
    long winded speeches and an endless list of names in alphabetical order

    So it took me an hour to learn this little tid bit... Replace(); does not effect a string directly. it returns a copy and a variable is needed... (facepalm)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Ugh, that trips me up sometimes too. I did what you did. Now when something doesn't work I check to see if it's like that first thing. Harsh lesson to learn.
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    It's funny, the times that I debug is when I learn the most. It makes you such about every nuance about the methods you're using and the stress seems to burn the information deep into your memory.

    Not such, that doesn't make any sense

    @davidjcastner

    @rmaylie9560 yea js has its annoyances, like if you you want to add an item to an array you don't need to assign it, but it you concat two lists you do, get me everytime

    var myArray = [1, 2, 3];
    var item;
    item  =  4;
    myArray.push(item); //works
    item = [5, 6, 7];
    myArray.concat(item): //doesn't work
    myArray = myArray.concat(item); // have to do this instead

    I have wasted many hours at work over this

    @Lilyheart
    Imma go to bed. None of it makes sense right now!

    Yea, that's a bug waiting to happen
    i wish I could bookmark that
    in the convo...
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    I'll put it in a gist
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    ty, hopefully I'll just remember but it's doubtful. I have a memory similair to a goldfish.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    apparently you can fork gists! FORKED THAT PUPPY UNTIL IT WAS DONE

    @davidjcastner
    There are reasons for why javascript works this way, but this has caused me much pain so I won't defend it right now
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    hahahaha :laughing:
