NebraskaJS was founded in fall of 2009 by local front-end heros Jonathan Sharp, Andrew Wirick, and Eli Perelman. It was originally focused solely on jQuery, but later expanded to include other front end technologies.
- Encourage open source/community contributions by our members. A portion of every meeting is dedicated to small lightning talks on GitHub issues that members in the community have contributed to (no issue too small).
- Sharing workflow and useful tools. Small coding exercises dedicated to showing how others work can expose useful tips and tricks to separate the wheat from the chaff in development tooling.
- All presentations are recorded and published online, in the hopes that it will improve the quality of presentations and offer nice exposure and incentive to present.
