Our third MancJS event will be May 01st at TechHub Manchester.
In a cunning attempt to top last month's generosity, TechHub are going to ply us with free pizza and booze again, so please sign up if you're coming.
Important: if you have a laptop, please bring it with you or this isn't going to work at all :)
This month we have a more hands-on event.
We'll get into pairs or small groups, and in the spirit of 'learn by doing', we'll all build the same basic web app. There are no rules. The idea is simply to focus on a specific element of the app (or all of it) that either you're best at, or want to learn about most within your pair/group.
Maybe you're more frontend and want to show us how you build a better experience. Maybe you're more backend and want to share how you architect/organise the app. Maybe you'd prefer to follow a process like TDD and show us how you use tests to guide you toward a feature. Maybe you want to show off the features of your favourite database. Whatever.
Afterwards we'll share our approaches, tools, ideas and allow everyone to learn from each other. It'll be a great way to see how we work in real life and allow us to take away some of the approaches and tools that we've not seen or used before.
As always, absolutely everyone is welcome – we're all here to learn.
