Next meeting: Svelte

Thursday, August 20, 2020
JaxNode normally meets at Availity the third Thursday of the month. Availity has cancelled all future meetings until the CDC has declared that we are past COVID-19 virus. Future meetings will be online. What is Svelte? Svelte is a JavaScript framework (actually, a compiler) to build UI in the browser (solves the same problem as React, Vue, Angular, etc.). Very easy to learn (3-4 hours). It's just standard HTML+JavaScript. No new syntax to learn. It's truly reactive - unlike other frameworks, you don't have to tell the framework to modify state, you just do it and the compiler knows It's a compiler, not a framework -- which means most work is done at build time, which produces faster and smaller code It has no runtime libraries -- it just uses browser APIs It doesn't use Virtual DOM -- it works on the real browser DOM, but efficiently

Welcome to the JaxNode User Group

The Jacksonville Node.js and Javascript User Group is for anyone interested in learning more about Node.js and JavaScript. JavaScript was originally created for scripting web browsers, but now JavaScript applications run on the server, desktop and even robots.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient.

Join our Meetup

We also would like to encourage everyone to join the Jacksonville-Tech Slack group. This is a great place to ask questions and find out about what is going on in the tech community here in Jacksonville.
