Electron NodeSchool

NodeSchool gives you a chance to work on interactive programming workshops with mentors available in case you get stuck or have any questions.

Electron is an open-source library to build desktop applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

At this event, we will be completing the Elementary Electron workshop for the first hour and then building our own desktop applications using Electron for the second hour.

While there are a lot of NodeSchool workshops available, we will be supporting just the Electron workshop for this event. Attendees are welcome to try any of the workshops available on nodeschool.io

This event is recommended for engineers with JavaScript experience but not Node.js experience is required.

Bring: An ID to show security and your laptop 


Install Node.js before arriving. We'll certainly be available to help get Node.js installed if you're having issues, but coming prepared will mean more time for coding!


6:30 - 7:00: Mingle, drinks (including beer!), and pizza.

7:00 - 8:00: Complete the Electron Workshop

8:00 - 9:00: Hack your own Electron App

9:00 - 9:20: Demo your Hack! (optional)

9:20 - 9:30: Wrap-up


Evelyn Straigt & Gautam Arora will facilitate the event.
