Node Girls 2017


On Saturday I had to joy of being a mentor for Brisbane's first Node Girls, similarly to Rails Girls, Node Girls helps address the gender imbalance in the tech world.

Node Girls Brisbane was actually founded by a former Rails Girls participant and asked me if I'd like to help out and as a rails-to-js convert I was more than happy to help.

The workshop covered the basics of Node.js, the Express framework, and touched on the concepts of client-server separation. If your interested the resources are available on Github.
