Alexandria Code and Coffee is a free, informal co-working session. People of all skill levels bring their personal projects--building an app, writing a blog, going through programming exercises--and we use the time to socialize, work, and network.
There is an introduction period where we all say our names and what we're working on. And that's about where the structure ends, everything after that is self-organized. People who are working in the same areas tend to hook up together and chat or even work together. Whatever your skill level, you're very likely to find other people in your position.
Bring a laptop computer, a notebook and pens, or just yourself.
NOTE: In the interest of maintaining a safe and respectful space, we ask that people try to keep the conversation on technology and off of political issues. While we recognize the importance of discussion of current events, we have seen that particular issues fire passions (which is great!) and hope to avoid any misunderstandings due to lack of experience in those issues.
Alexandria Code and Coffee is an inclusive, informal co-working session. People of all skill levels attend, and we love it that way. Many people (optionally) bring projects to work on, and many other people (optionally) socialize the entire time. It's up to you! Some ideas for personal projects: build an app, write a blog, or go through programming exercises.
Near the beginning of the event (around 9:30am) we do an introduction circle. You say your name, what you're working on, what you can help others with, and what you would like help with. You can also share job opportunities or announce that you are looking for some. After the introduction circle, everything is self-organized.
We’ll be using Zoom for remote video conferencing, with Google Docs to help organize (we will add the Zoom details Saturday morning). Follow these instructions:
