September Bunkerjs

We’ve been doing an internal JavaScript meetup once a month and there are so many great resources coming out of it, I though I’d reblog for others to see. Hope you enjoy.

Some reviews from Bunkerjs:

“I learned something”
“This will revolutionize the way I do the blog”
*gasp* “Nice”

In beginners corner we went back to basics, talking about Inspect Element, editing css, and breakpoints
Then we showed off Google’s Karma test runner

Next month: John will share Docker
