We are a group of Software Engineers in the Capital Area (Cumberland and Dauphin counties) that meets regularly on the 2nd Monday of every month. Our goal is to connect people starting a career in software development all the way to seasoned veterans by being an open and welcoming community that shares knowledge and explores new ideas together.
For many years this group has been a Java Users Group (JUG) but in recent times we have found that the interests of the group are much broader than a single programming language. Please take a look at our previous meetup topics to get a sense of our content.
We alternate between a few different presentation formats, but the most typical are:
• Two presentations with a break in between
• A set of approximately 6 lightning talks (10 mins each)
Our primary aim is to establish a strong and tight knit community of software engineers that are interested in building software that we can take pride in. Most of our talks involve some tie into software craftsmanship.
In 2018 we will be looking to break off a few other monthly events, starting with hack-nights where you can come with a side project or join with an existing team to work on technology and grow your skills outside of your day job.
