  • Source_Code.Detroit - Coders & Startups Meetup @ WeWork
    We are about connecting technology professionals with startups and vice versa. One of the biggest challenges for a startup is technology. Professional software development services are often beyond the reach of a startup. Even simple advice can be difficult to find. Our goal is to provide a forum for Detroit technology professionals and startups to meet, share experiences and discuss technology. Whether you are a technology professional that wants to help a startup or a startup looking for advice, we want to provide an environment to foster that discussion. Each event will start with a short introduction from startups and tech leaders. Each startup will provide one technology ask during their introduction, each technology professional will identify their core technology skill set such as Java, .Net, NodeJS.
