KeralaJS

Kerala JavaScript user group

KeralaJS first meetup summary

We had our first meetup of KeralaJS on 27th October 2013 at Cochin HackerSpace and officially launched the user group. There was a turn-out of 20 developers from different companies and start-ups based out of Kochi.

There were 3 sessions planned with time alloted for lightning talks. Registration was open till 2:00PM and the event kick-started with Shameer C giving an introduction to KeralaJS and it's plans for the future. It was followed by a talk on “Introduction to NodeJs” by Shiju Varghese until 3:30PM and the session encouraged a lot of interaction from the attendees. The next session, “JavaScript for everyone” was taken by Shameer C and he talked about how one could use JavaScript in a wide variety of domain ranging from web development to controlling robots. A short session on “Promises in JavaScript” followed it, and Revath S Kumar talked about the asynchronous nature of the programming language and how “promises” help developers to build apps which would utilize this feature. The last session of the day was a lightning talk by Praseed Pai, and he delivered an interesting talk on the functional aspects of JavaScript Programming.

The talks were over by 5:30PM and snacks and drinks were provided for the attendees. Many of the attendees decided to stay back for some more time for networking with others. Overall, the event was a success and another one is being planned for the following month.

Thanks to all attendees who came for our first meetup and making it a great event!
