What we're about

This group is for professional web and application designers and developers looking to network with others in the industry, learn about new or emerging technologies, and for anyone looking to learn web and or application development (beginner to advanced).

We talk design, share experiences with use of different tools & languages, critique sites & apps, talk industry, business, employment news, and share motivations and inspirations. This group is intended to become a hub for all today's technologies that make up the Internet as we know it.

We meet monthly in informal settings (usually over coffee, drink and /or food) to network and socialize with other fellow web development professionals and enthusiasts and listen to 1-2 member-led presentations about various programming topics.

Wanna speak? Get in touch! Our meetings usually last about 2 hours leaving two 30 minute spots for speakers. All we need ahead of time is a title and short description of your talk.

6:30 pm - 7:00 pm: Kiefer Slaton- Meet Your New CoPilot

Like it or not, OpenAI opened a new Pandora's Box and kickstarted the AI wars with the public release of ChatGPT in November of last year. Since then, as companies in the tech, design, and general productivity industries have jumped on the speeding bandwagon, it's becoming increasingly obvious that AI is going to completely change the way we work. Let's look at the tools that already exist for developers, the ones coming soon, and the benefits and drawbacks they pose to your everyday workflow.

7:00 pm - 7:30 pm: Blake Watson- Developers Have a Superpower

Developers have a superpower—the ability to solve their *own* problems with software. Not every app needs to be a polished product for public consumption. Home-cooked apps are those that you build for yourself or friends/family without worrying about such things as “industry standards” or “scaling.” Discover the joys of building and using home-cooked apps and find out how to get started yourself.


Wanna speak? Get in touch! We are looking for two speakers for our upcoming meeting.
