Description

Using JavaScript and Twitter's API we will create an "intelligent" bot. An easy and fun way to learn how JavaScript can be used to build real projects. Our bot will search for tweets mentioning different keywords and reply to them with a pre-defined answer.

This workshop won't be a step-by-step JavaScript introduction. Instead we will build something useful and fun, while learning some basic JavaScript concepts along the way.

Before you come: Experience with JavaScript is ideal. Be sure to bring a laptop. If you don’t have one, we can pair you with someone who does. Also make sure to make a Twitter account if you don't already have one.

How to find us: Located SE Portland near Ladd's Addition on 10th betweek SE Market & Mill. Free Street Parking available on every block. Buses 4, 10, 14, and 70 all have stops within 2-3 blocks of location. Check in at Front Desk for Event with Free Geek Admin Team
