Portland is an awesome place to be a JavaScript hacker.

JavaScript is everywhere. It’s in your browser, on your server, in your phone, on the wire between your devices, and possibly in your thermostat, beer keg, or karaoke system... and it’s only growing from there. We’ve gone from roll-over effects to robots, codeable toys and automated quad-copter drones, all speaking a common language of JSON, often sharing JavaScript code at their core.

Portland is home to some of the most talented developers in the world. We’re not kidding. Our quirky and distinctive town breeds creativity in all things, from the culinary arts and funky brews we’re so famous for to artisanally crafted Python and minimalist-chic of JavaScript micro-libraries. PDX is bursting with artistic craftsmanship unlike anywhere else on the planet.

NodePDX creates a time and a place for this community to share information, discuss ideas, and work together to improve the art and science of hacking.
