    Hello World! Just joining the JS learner community after discovering Free Code Camp and looking for a coding meetup. Nice to meet you all :)
    metasean
    @metasean

    @annblodgett - It's nice to meet you too!

    This isn't the most active gitter in the world, but we try to meet f2f twice a month, once for the Learners' Study Group and once for the Learners' Meetup. The local Free Code Camp group also tries to meet twice a month, so you should be able to find a fair bit of f2f support. :smiley:

    @annblodgett
    @metasean Thanks for letting me know! I've joined the meetup group :)

    @metasean

    :smile: - We'll look forward to seeing you!

    In the meantime, I've written a blog post addressing things that have come up frequently in the Learners' group - https://metasean.github.io/blog/2016/04/02/J-S-Learners-Fieldguide.html

    And if you haven't already noticed, the Free Code Camp gitter channels are awesomely active!

    @metasean Wow! Great article- I'm glad you mentioned the code katas . As soon as I get far enough through the fcc program I plan to look into codewars more. And I have,in fact ,noticed that the code camp channels are ridiculously active! Thanks again for all your help.

    @annblodgett - Wow! You're a speed reader!
    I have an unhealthy addition to code katas :smirk:
    If you don't get help quickly on the FCC gitters, post again.
    I've always been able to get an answer pretty quickly
    But if the message gets swamped you may have to put it out there again

    Hey! I don't know if anyone is checking this but I figure it's worth a shot .

    @metasean
    @annblodgett - What's up?
    Ann Blodgett
    @annblodgett
    Hi! So -There is a meetup today at the iron yard.
    metasean
    @metasean
    There is :-) I'm on the FrontRunner en route now.
    Ann Blodgett
    @annblodgett
    I was planning on going but I have a heart condition that sometimes makes me pass out/ unable to drive. Unfortunately it chose today to flare up.
    metasean
    @metasean
    I'm so sorry to hear that!
    If it's something that will ease up, we'll be there until 2
    In the meantime, is there something specific that I can help with?
    Ann Blodgett
    @annblodgett
    Ya😕 I am wondering if there is anyway for me to still participate remotely- like if I can chat in and still work at the same time as everyone else but just maybe be at home
    metasean
    @metasean
    Absolutely!
    Ann Blodgett
    @annblodgett
    Thanks! I'll plan on signing back in at 9:45 then.
    I really appreciate you answering me btw
    👍🏻
    metasean
    @metasean
    Sounds great! (And don't stand up too quickly :blush:)
    Ann Blodgett
    @annblodgett
    No kidding 😄
    Thanks again
    metasean
    @metasean
    Absolutely!
    And the FreeCodeCamp folks are also having a study group next Saturday at the Iron Yard, so hopefully you can do join us face-to-face then. :-)
    Ann Blodgett
    @annblodgett
    I've got it on my calendar 😄

    @briancbarrow
    Sean asked me to tell you people are here now.
    metasean
    @metasean
    @annblodgett - is there a phone number I can reach you at?
    metasean
    @metasean
    @annblodgett - FYI: the internet hasn't been the best at the Iron Yard so Brian is going to move the FreeCodeCamp meeting back to Murray Library.
    Ann Blodgett
    @annblodgett

    Hello. Is anyone here good with Javascript? I'm a noob and I have a life altering question.
    metasean
    @metasean
    @librafraudster - I can function in it, and I've got a young wizard (@PsychoLlama) sitting next to me. So, toss us that life altering question!
    librafraudster
    @librafraudster
    Well I'm struggling with Javascript and I need to make this traffic light animation
    It is life altering because it decides the rest of my Computing future I hope to be a web developer when I'm older
    I was wondering what steps to take in order to get the animation done
    metasean
    @metasean
    Where are you with the animation? (e.g. is it just a desire or do you actually have code and it's just giving you grief?)
    librafraudster
    @librafraudster
    It's giving me grief
    Iv'e been trying to learn about CSS and HTML canvas but I just don't understand
    metasean
    @metasean
    Sorry to drop off. (We're really focused on another project :neckbeard:) I haven't done anything with HTML canvas directly. Do you have any code that you can share?
