It's all about you

Are you a JavaScript enthusiast? Wether you're a newbie or an old-hand, OttawaJS meetups are a great place to meet your peers. We are a group of JavaScript and NodeJS enthusiasts in Ottawa. We meet to share information, demos, new technologies, ask questions and learn together. We cover client-side and server-side JavaScript innovation in the local tech community.

The OttawaJS group meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Adobe Building. We try to have a couple of presentations each month that cover a variety of topics from beginner to advanced.
