Can we use this thread to collect "what you need to know to run a NodeSchool" so that we can link to this on the main website and encourage more people to run local events.

Listening to this podcast is probably a good idea :)

http://www.nodeup.com/fiftyfive

Also read these summary posts from previous events:

There is now a link at the bottom of http://nodeschool.io pointing to this issue thread. Additionally, if you have a venue booked to run a nodeschool event, state the date and location in this thread to get your event listed on the website and also link to a tweet so you can be retweeted by the nodeschool twitter account.

Also, we need stickers that can be given out at any of the events, @maxogden & @jlord you guys seem to be king & queen of nerd stickers, can you make this happen?

Perhaps anyone running an event can request to have a batch sent to them, or get the design to be printed locally or whatever. I imagine something about completing NodeSchool: "I attended NodeSchool and survived" or whatever.

Hey folks, I'm in Halifax, NS and have been pulling together a local JS meetup, I'm considering about making this a regular part of the meetup, perhaps an hour of node school followed by an hour of lightning talks, has anyone got experience with this mix?

@mattcreager that sounds like what BrooklynJS is planning to soon (layering in NodeSchool before the talks of their regular event). /cc @brianloveswords

I know something folks who want to run an event need to do: 1. Read the thread topic ( ;) mea culpa) and 2. Know where to post things like my misplaced comment above.

If there are some stickers or resources available, that would be great.

@iancrowther I believe @andrew expressed interest recently in helping run a https://github.com/jlord/git-it workshop (a workshopper by @jlord) in london

I tried to write up the gotchas here: nodeschool/nodeschool.github.io#15

We had 3 people go through learnyounode in advance to be familiar with the problems and having 26 attendees seemed to keep us busy with initial setup issues for 15-20 minutes. After that people seemed to pair up with those next to them for help and we had very few questions. Everything went very well. From some brief polling the average attendee made it through 2/3rds of learnyounode in 2 hours. Everyone we talked to wanted to do it again in the future to finish learnyounode and move on to some of the other lessons.

I Want to host a node event at my campus,i love the web and hardware a lot and i wanna teach other guys around here the same thing.The issue is that i have no experience with running node events and i haven't been into one either :( and to be frank i don't know where to start

@denzelwamburu First step would be to open a new issue in this issue tracker in which you tell people where you want to have a meetup and that you need help with (x), (y), (z)

in lieu of an issue link..

@denzelwamburu book a room, setup a http://ti.to for tkt reg and plug the link around campus... leave a printout in the computer labs or something.. keep it small 5-10 and you'll figure out your own style and format :-) good luck!

There hasn't been such an event around here before and people are familiar to such events either.It's kind of a marginalized place with slow internet connectivity plus other minor challenges here and there but people love tech a lot.I will try starting small.Of course i will let you know.
Cheers.

This thread is immense and unwieldy. How do you feel about me going through, picking out all of the relevant points of advice, compiling a document, and then using that as a pointer for people? We can continue discussion here, or in smaller, more pointed issues.

@mikeal Cool. I saw that; I got the impression I was supposed to read this entire thread before hosting a NodeSchool, or add an update in here about how mine went. The discussion in nodeschool/organizers#209 might fix that impression. Or a tag on that page saying you don't have to read this whole thing.

@RichardLitt +1 to condensing this thread down into a smaller list of
awesomeness. the host.html page is pretty light and could use more content

I need to re-activate Nodeschool Lagos (which has been inactive). I spoke to the organizer and he's okay with me going ahead. However, I need help to reset user and start putting information on the web site. Can anyone help with advise?
