The Blast Furnace is a monthly meetup, competition & education session aimed at all levels of programmers.
It's an interactive Meetup that requires you to bring your own computer (BYOC). We will provide power, internet and pizza!
Each Blast Furnace event is organised into two sections. The first hour is a tutorial on how to write code or use the technology of the day. Following that we enjoy some Pizza and then come together to collaborate on a joint project where we can all learn from each other!
Developer Trivia is back again in December 2020!
It's been an odd year and perhaps one the meetup community will quickly want to put behind it. I expect the year ahead will see us return to some semblance of normality.
To finish off the year, we will be running the Newwwie Developer Trivia for 2020! We're really excited to bring you some of the weird and wonderful edge cases of developer knowledge. This year will be a little different. We will stream the trivia from Dashworks Makespace, and you can answer online.

There will be two ways to be a part of the trivia:
1. Come to a venue that's hosting for the trivia and join and bring a team where drinks and food will be provided.
2. Get your own team together and jump on the stream where you can participate remotely.
There will be three rounds with breaks and prizes distributed virtually!
Can I bring a team along? Yes, we encourage people to form a team. It's more fun together. Just remember to RSVP so we can plan things out if you're coming to the venue.
I don't have a team, is that OK? Yes, we'll find you a team on the night. If you really want to, you can compete solo as well.
I'm a manager / BA / QA / front end/back end / junior developer should I come along? YES! There will be questions for everyone who is interested in the dev space you will be a valuable part of a team.
Where are the venues?
You can rsvp to come and play trivia at Dashworks with us via the link in the comments or check meetup to see which meetups are hosting the trivia at their venue.
Remember you can host your own party and tune in remotely!
