Hey folks!

Pack your laptops and join us for our last meetup of the year where we’ll talk and learn about something we all use: IDEs.

An IDE is an Integrated Development Environment and where we live in our day to day lives as working or learning developers. We’ll look at some of the different IDEs out there, functionality and how they compare, as well as extensions and keyboard shortcuts that can make your life easier, including making your own code snippets.

This talk and the exercises will be led by Jeff Kranenburg, a senior tutor at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology in web and software development.

5:30pm - Doors open, catch up.
6:00pm - Welcome
6:10pm - IDE Talk and Practical Exercises
7:30pm - CodeChallenge reviews (see the #codingchallenges channel on our Slack for more info)
8:00pm - /end

To prepare:
Make sure you have your chosen IDE on the laptop you’re bringing, and while there are no wrong choices, we will be looking a lot at one of the most popular: Visual Studio Code.
Make sure you’ve joined our Slack channel, as we often share resources through there on the night.

Base Station, 148 Durham Street. We’ll gather in the cafe Folk on the ground floor and then head down into the basement after 6pm.

What to bring:
Your laptop + charger
Drink bottle
Your IDE, extension, and shortcut suggestions!
