Hack at UCI has always worked to spread the latest information about the technologies and ways of working in the programming world. With Node.JS becoming so popular and gaining momentum all over the industry, Hack held several workshops during the Fall Quarter to introduce Node.JS to our fellow students and to provide them with the skills they could use at upcoming hackathons happening all over the country.
The first workshop covered the basics of web development and how to use Git, which are fundamentals every developer should be aware of. This event was held on November 3rd from 7pm to 9pm in room 6011 of Donald Bren Hall on campus, and to our surprise, was attended by more than 150 students who were eager to learn about one of the most popular developing languages in the past few years. With such a great turnout, we were able to motivate various students to do more programming and build products.
