Norfolk.js Meetup
January 18th, 2016

For our January meetup, Frances Coronel will be talking about the rise of JavaScript-based coding bootcamps and her experiences with employers and developers alike becoming increasingly aware of their importance and growth worldwide.

Frances is a web developer at 80|20 and a senior CS major at Hampton University who enjoys web-design/development and chocolate dipped strawberries. And yes, that’s what her logo is.

  15. 15. It’s October 2014. I’m going for it again, and this time, no excuses. I decided to narrow my search down to make sure the bootcamp had the following: Excellent Reviews - had to go through Yelp, Quora, CourseReport, SwitchUp, etc. (might be convenient if there’s one website for everything !) Excellent Hiring Rate - I may not be looking for a job now, but I will be in the near future and I want to be prepared! Full-stack and JavaScript focused (I never liked the idea of learning Ruby).
