You live in Cork or Dublin? Come along and meet fellow Web Designers and Developers!
Our meetings are a great way to:
Learn a software or a programming language
Share tips and links among each other
Find a potential project partner
Make new contacts (have your business card and your LinkedIn profile ready!)
All our members are eager to learn new things, improve their skills and ready to teach what they already know because this is the best way to value their own skills! That is why our meetings are 90% practical! So don't be afraid if you think that you are a beginner, just be curious! After all, we all started one day...
Among the things we like to learn:
HTML & CSS
PHP & MySQL
User Interface / User Experience
Scrum (Agile methodology)
How to buy a domain name and host your website
How to upload your website
Photoshop & Illustrator
How to use the console
Github and Bitbucket
Here is an example of how we meet: In the description of a meetup, I share the link of a course that everybody can learn at home and make the exercises. It can be, for instance, a course from Codecademy or Khan Academy. If they don't understand something, they can write it down so that they can ask at our next meetup.
