What we're about

We are a community and more than a meetup group. We are experienced professional devs (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).

=======
Events
=======
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.
