What we're about

Welcome to Melbourne Code Mentoring!

This is a group for all levels of coders who work on the web. Whether you've never written a line of code in your life, or you're a seasoned code-monkey, this group is for you! We meet up regularly on weekends and provide an easy environment to learn how to code, improve your skills, or if you feel you're good enough, help out with mentoring.

Upcoming events (5+)

Free code mentoring - For all levels

General Assembly Melbourne

You've heard of coding, but it looks kind of complex, and you don't know where to begin. Or perhaps you've been game enough to try, you've downloaded an editor, wrote a few lines, but you're a bit confused. Maybe you're already well on your way, and just want to spend time in a happy community of developers (and want to share your passionate distaste of Internet explorer). Whatever you're level, this is the place for you... We run this meetup almost every week at General Assembly in Melbourne. Bring your laptop, a coffee, and come code in a relaxed and open setting with other developers. For those just starting out, there are mentors who will guide you from the very beginning, and train you each week to become a better web developer. For the more advanced, this is a great opportunity for you to learn more about new and upcoming technologies, contribute by helping and mentoring, or have your question about that weird bug answered. We focus mainly on web development, which includes (but not limited to!) HTML, CSS, Javascript, React and Node.js. Don't worry if you don't know what any of these are, you'll soon pick it up. So come down this Saturday with your laptop (don't forget your charger!) and join us in building and learning on the web! - Tristan Please note: By attending this Meetup you are agreeing to receive updates about news, programs, and special events from our venue partner General Assembly.

Presentation: MSA, TBD, DDD, TDD, BDD, WTF?

General Assembly Melbourne

Please note: Members who have RSVPd to this presentation will be given priority for the session, other Code Mentoring members are welcome to attend if space permits. If there is enough interest I will arrange a second presentation. This weekend I’ll be doing a presentation about microservice architecture, trunk based development, domain driven design, test driven development and behaviour driven development. This presentation is aimed at new and junior developers as an introduction to best practices that can be observed and practiced in development teams. The presentation will assume some knowledge around agile methodologies, and basic git concepts such as pull requests. If you want some help with these concepts I’ll be available at the normal Code Mentoring meetup on 15th June 2019 (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Code-Mentoring-Web-Development-Design/events/hpbprqyzjbtb/). To get the most value from this presentation you’ll need an understanding that “best practice” doesn’t always match corporate realities, a desire to learn and improve, and the ability to apply concepts to your particular skill-set. I’ll begin the presentation with a high level overview of each of the 5 concepts, and then wrap them all together to help you understand how they can be combined to make your development tasks easier. As this is my first ever meetup presentation I’ll be keeping the floor open to questions throughout the presentation, and I’m more than happy to discuss these concepts after the presentation or at future Code Mentoring meetups. I'd like to thank my employer, MessageMedia (https://www.messagemedia.com), for providing me with the time to create this presentation; and General Assembly (https://generalassemb.ly) for providing the venue. - Michael Please note: By attending this Meetup you are agreeing to receive updates about news, programs, and special events from our venue partner General Assembly.
