My name is Josh Finnie and I am one of the co-organizers of @NodeDC the local Washington DC meetup group. We have just wrapped up hosting a NodeSchool at the NationJS conference and it got us thinking we should make our meetup officially part of the NodeSchool community. When submitting for a chapter we were informed that one already exists and was setup by you. I am reaching out to see if we can assist in any way with the Washington DC chapter of NodeSchool. I personally run a monthly meetup called "Node Night" where we have routinely been hosting NodeSchool and would love to continue helping people learn Node.

Interesting way to inject underscore into Angular.js
var underscore = angular.module('underscore', []);
underscore.factory('_', function() {
return window._; //Underscore must already be loaded on the page
app.controller('MainCtrl', ['$scope', '_', function($scope, _) {
init = function() {

NodeSchool Mentor Get-together

@NodeDC, in conjunction with @NationJS are putting on a NodeSchool event the morning before the main conference. To make this a resounding success we need your help!

Come help others learn how to node! No need to be an expert, you just have to know a little more than someone else. First, register for the free NodeSchool Event on NationJS's website, then RSVP to this meetup.

This meetup will allow us to get the organization of the event in order and make sure everyone knows what being a mentor entails. Please bring a laptop with the NodeSchool modules installed so we can hit the ground running.
