This group provides a FREE forum where by Software Developers of all levels can discuss different topics in many different programming languages, software design, methodologies, improved development practices, shared experiences, and anything we can relate to our Art. The format of the meeting is a group discussion where we encourage everyone to participate. Usually the group focuses a selected section in a book or some other media format of choice. Books and discussion topics are nominated and chosen in a democratic fashion keeping the group going in the direction the group as a whole wants to go. Everyone is welcome to attend that wants to improve and learn from shared experiences or just wants to network. Many of us in the group feel we would not be the software developers we are today without this group.
This group has its roots in Java and has been a FREE forum for all levels of software develops to discussion relevant/related topics for over a decade. Formerly known as the “LAJUG Study Group” and continued supporter of the LAJUG we have, from the start, covered topics much broader than those related to Java so felt it was time for a new name that identifies us much better. Born from that is our new name “DevTalk LA”.
