What we're about

Coding Portugal is a home for developers of all skill levels. Everybody's welcome, everyone's invited, everyone will take something home from our meetups. This is not your usual "experts talk, audience listens" kind of experience but a community driven meetup that embraces a knowledge exchange culture as well as a strict "nice to have you here"-attitude.

Isn't it amazing how many technologies you have to learn to follow the path of modern software development? Be it blockchains for storing transactions, machines taking decisions based upon digital learning sets, virtual clusters providing computing power for scaled applications and command line tools that improve your workflow: it's nearly impossible to keep an eye on everything.

That's where we jump in: Instead of specialising on a dedicated topic, coding portugal was established to become a hub meetup for Portugal's coder community: every software development related topic is welcome here, every question may be asked and everyone should have a good time. There's only one golden rule: don't bore us with bs, talks have to be hands on, they must contain at least 1 line of code and in the best case they're massively supported by demos.

We are looking forward to your ideas for upcoming meetups. If you want to share any of your knowledge with a highly motivated community, this is the right place. If you want to demonstrate a software stack that you're using in your company or as a freelancer, this is the place to present. If you seek for an opportunity to spread the evangelism of the next big programming language: give a talk at coding portugal. We're embracing developers' lifestyle and we're here to connect you with likeminded people.

Here are some golden rules of coding portugal:

• we neither care about your gender, your skin tone, your religious views, the language your mother taught you nor your heritage or favorite science fiction series, we only care about you as a developer.

• no marketing, no recruiting, only tech and if possible: code (lets consider yaml valid, and of course you may announce that your company is hiring)

• don't bash one technology in favor of another without giving a concrete reason (Ruby is sh*t, Rust is much better, you know the game)

• one demo gets you rid of 10 slides so don't be shy and type live, we're all developers so we'll only laugh at cat pictures and obvious typos

• meetups are done in English (talk exceptions must and will be announced).

• food is not always free, but maybe you get a t-shirt

• everyone can become a developer

• everyone can become a better developer

• being a bad developer doesn't make you a bad person

• there are no bad developers

• you do talk about coding portugal

coding portugal chapter #2: Porto

Porto i/o Downtown

coding portugal is a developer focused meetup series that connects, educates and entertains coders of all trades and skill levels. During summertime we're keeping the 2nd chapter of coding portugal small and cozy, so be prepared to have an enjoyable evening with networking options and open discussions. For our second Porto event we already found two talks: Philipp Kessels will give an overview about the amazing VIM editor and how you can use it for your everyday work. With "Getting started with Git and GitHub", João Henrique will then give a gentle introductory overview of the concepts, the jargon and the workflow, surrounding these two technologies that are commonly used on most tech companies these days. If you want to give another talk that night, go ahead and propose one: all coding related topics are welcome on stage. Thank you, porto i/o for having us again! Note that this time we're not located at the same spot as in April but rather in porto i/o's downtown coworking space which is also a very nice spot for meetups. Agenda 19:00 doors open 19:30 intro 19:45 Phillip Kessels: "An Intro to VIM" 20:15 João Henrique: Getting started with Git and GitHub 21:00 open discussion & networking Our organizer team is totally looking forward seeing you again!

Paulo promised us to give an overview of robotic process automation and how it might affect workplaces all over the industry in the near future. If there's still some time left, João will happily introduce you in the better or lesser known depths of Git & Github. We're looking forward to seeing you again!

He'll show lots of coding insights he gathered over the last couple of years and it'll be a great kickoff for discussions afterwards.
