I’m in a similar position - I go to this meetup once a month it’s really good! http://www.meetup.com/london-nodejs/
Talk to the people there and in the gitter channel you are sure to find people to work with :)

@iancrowther I don't actually know which workshop is the best but I like 'back to basics' topics. 'Scope Chains, Closures' looks interesting. Also React workshop would be great.

@foxreymann depending on how you announce the event, there are typically more beginners than intermediate / expert, so it’s good to run a learnyounode to start with.
@iancrowther :blush:
I live in a limbo land of perma-awake/perma-asleep
but I’d like to come to the next nodeschool

I was thinking about running an advanced NS but having a table for javascripting / learnyounode
its how we have been running in Notts and works well
Oli Evans
@olizilla
May 27 2016 11:24
get more LNUG folk to come along I suppose
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 11:25
well i figured by putting them back to back we’ll get a lot more involvement from the LNUG comm
Oli Evans
@olizilla
May 27 2016 11:25
aye is good plan
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 11:25
also we can announce via the meetup and its simples to put on
minimal viable event org

hi @olizilla yes i have been to nodeschool meetups which we started doing learnyounode which is great. What i need to be honest that i can have a project that i can be part of and contribute and also learn as well. There is no node project at work which i can join. it also makes difficult to keep up the things i learn from that meetups.

@rsimsek have you seen gitevents.org
Oli Evans
@olizilla
May 27 2016 11:26
one day
need gitevents to supplant meetup.com
in the meantime
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 11:26
were about to re-model and re-architect the thing again based on lessons learnt
Oli Evans
@olizilla
May 27 2016 11:26
lnug to meetup is a good move
meetup is still clunky as hell
but
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 11:27
stripped back admin
like the old ways but have to do whats right for the masses
Oli Evans
@olizilla
May 27 2016 11:27
and nodeschool events can just be announced under lnug as well
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 11:27
indeed

Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 11:27
less updates
no mail lists
more focus on the content, not the admin
seems like a win to me
Oli Evans
@olizilla
May 27 2016 11:28
yep, it’s never given us any problems
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 11:28

what food do we want?
can I get some suggestions and caterers?
eg if we want mini burritos, who is a good place to purchase from?
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 27 2016 13:00
anyone had these before?
Alan Shaw
@alanshaw
May 27 2016 14:36

@alanshaw @olizilla @iancrowther the functional javascript workshopper is terrific, and I enjoy helping people with it. It can be challenging though, and some people may prefer something more obviously related to day--to-day coding. Planet Proto is a short fun tutorial for those new to js prototypes. Async You is good for showing how to think about parallel tasks. Substack and Rod Vagg's levelmeup on the levelup db is brilliant
the mini burritos are great btw

hello all :wave:
poncho8 burritos are good! i think i can swing a discount with a Chilango branch too, their burritos are bigger and more food-coma-inducing
