    well the only thing i can think of is to may be start with a goal for the next meetup something simple like, on the free course on plurasight there are some problems (simple ones but they make you think)
    for the people that have not taken that course we can suggest hey can you solve this problems? (without pointing them to the videos of course)
    for newbies like me it could be a good discussion
    for example some of the problems are like this:
        //Write a function that adds from two invocations
        //addf(3)(4) //7
    may be suggest that 3 or 4 days before the meetup for the newbies and discuss their solutions
    :-)

    hm ok, I see how that could be fun
    could offer a challenge from the social night to be presented on the meetup
    that basically gives you 7 days to solve/discuss

    there is also this site that i have been following:
    we could definetly pick 3 items and ask the comunity hey in which scenario would you use Call? for example
    they say that you can undertand them in 30 seconds.. but honestly for the majority of them i still am struggling ha ha

    ah, that's like an idea I had, which is to present basic javascript concepts in depth, and then discussing the best use cases for them
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    but we can pick one or two code snippets and ask the people in which scenario they would use them
    or if they can provide a working example
    ah, that's like an idea I had, which is to present basic javascript concepts in depth, and then discussing the best use cases for them
    yeah that sounds great!
    i really liked that site because provides cool code snippets (and they are not that easy to understand)
    we can definitely discuss them
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    yea it looks really neat
    so I think the format for the foreseeable future will be meetups with multiple segments, all bite sized
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    they have enough code snippets to keep us entertained for the upcoming meetups :-D
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    we'll spread it out so it lasts longer :P
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    yep small chunks
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    ok, so the last thing in the agenda is call for volunteers
    would you be interested in running the code snippet portion?
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    sure i can give it a try
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    we need volunteers who would be presenting things/leading discussions during meetups, and also things more in the background, running our social media, catering (to order/or get the food/ not paying for it), and potentially chat moderator, but probably something for later
    awesome
    I think we'll move the chat to discord, gitter isn't great at telling me who's online and who's not. Can't shame people for not speaking up
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    yeah i am seeing a couple of green dots on the people tab but i don't know if they are online
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    oh well, so do you have anything else you'd like to mention/say/comment on?
    @klamping any closing thoughts? last minute light bulbs?
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    nope i think that would be all, it was really good talk and we will see how it goes with the 30 seconds of code ;-)
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    haha it'll be great
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    (which it takes more thatn 30 seconds though...)
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    yea, I'm expecting a 15 minute discussion for each
    and that's if we have a senior developer explaining it to new comers :P
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    ha ha ha ha i really hope there is one in the meetup ...
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    we have senior members, but some of them have been busy lately. Kevin is one so he'll be around :P
    alright, I guess that's it, meeting adjourned. Hopefully those who couldn't make it will read the logs and add to the discussion

    @YavierVillalobos
    ha ha ha Awesome!
    Thank you Daniel! have a good night and stay warm!
    Daniel Chen
    @danielim
    you too!
    if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask
    YavierVillalobos
    @YavierVillalobos
    I definitely will! Thanks!
