What Programming Language Should I learn?

You can't swing a cat meme on the internet without running into "Learn to Code".  But what does that mean? How does one go from programming to profits?

Register Now (and save 50% w/ the code MeetupOBP)

Join us for a panel discussion featuring professional programmers who work in different languages and different environments - from Java in the enterprise to Node.js in startups.  Our diverse panel will include people who are trained software engineers, humanities majors who fell into coding and are now gainfully employed, and many things in between.

Our discussion will cover:

What's it like to work as a software engineer in an established company?

What's it like to work as a developer in a startup?

What do you really need to know to get a job as a programmer?

Should you learn PHP / jQuery / Ruby on Rails / Java / C / Perl / JavaScript, etc?


Who is this for?

This meetup is for anyone who is curious about programming, exploring career options, or just wants to learn the unvarnished truth from people who've been there before.

If you're trying to decide whether to go to a Hacker Boot camp, or go back to school and get a degree, join us! We'll have some information about available workshops, venues, and programs.

Are you teaching a class, boot camp or workshop?

If so, we invite you to come present as a sponsor. We've got several tables available for you to bring your materials, and you'll have a brief opportunity to pitch your workshop before our panel begins.

Note: This panel event costs $10 at the door.  If you pre-register, you can get $5 off w/ the code MeetupOBP
