What we're about

Community. Mentoring. Coding. Pairing. Low-Commitment.

These are a few words that describe us. We are a community and more than a meetup group. We are experienced professionals (Mentors) and early career devs (Mentees). Read more about us here (https://bit.ly/DevTogetherMadAbout).

We connect Mentors and Mentees through low-commitment and high-value interaction events, which are typically Code Review and Pair Programming events. General info about our Code Mentoring events here (https://bit.ly/DevTogetherMadCodeMentoringInfo).

Our main events are on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. We believe in in-person events that provide a personalized learning experience and move beyond syntax and the shiny new tech.

Social events are typically held about 2 weeks before the next event.

ABOUT DEV TOGETHER Dev Together is a people-first community focused on mentoring early-career developers (Mentees) by connecting them with technical and non-technical Mentors through low-commitment and high-value interaction events. Mentors give back to the local tech community while improving soft skills like communication skills and team-building skills. Mentees improve technical skills, foundational development practice knowledge, career skills (resume, interviews, etc) and therefore, improve their chances of getting their first development job.
