Full Stack is back to kick off 2014! After going on hiatus, we're excited to reintroduce Full Stack into the community. The premise hasn't changed, we're still invested in bringing you the best meetup experience involving great food, great beverages, and phenomenal speakers. With this return, we're much more organized and eager to elevate the Denver community! Additional details at the January meetup.

In January, Desi McAdam (github, twitter) will dive into the details of what she looks for when hiring for one of the industry's top Ruby and Ruby on Rails consultancies, thoughtbot. As a managing director of the Denver office, she'll go over the skills you need, the types of questions they ask, and what the interview process is like. You'll walk away with a greater understanding of what is expected of you as a candidate and how to get where you need to be to nail that interview.

For our second talk, Josh Robinson (github, twitter, web) will guide us through building an app with Meteor JS. "Meteor is an ultra-simple environment for building modern websites." Josh will demonstrate building and deploying a micro social network from scratch using Meteor. This is a great opportunity to get your feet wet with a new and very ambitious platform.

Delicious food and craft beers, as usual.
