What we're about

This group is for anyone who is interested in software/web development but does not have much prior experience in the field and is looking to enter the software industry by developing their own online curriculum via MOOCs. Members are expected to study what ever material they find on the internet independently throughout the week, at the end of two weeks group members will meet to discuss their progress.

I am trying to create a community where individuals who are new to software development can come together every two weeks to debrief and to talk about what they have been working on during the prior weeks. Individuals can share resources, ask questions, and provide assistance to technical and non-technical questions.

I have found in my own experience that the other programming Meet Up groups can be valuable but tend to have people who are much more experience than myself and this can lead to frustration when attending those meetups because of the gap in knowledge between experience programmers and those that are new to the field.

If you are new to programming you should join this group for the opportunity to have the support of a community of like minded new programmers. But you should also join (and attend) other Meet Up groups that will have more advance and skilled members that can provide technical explanations to questions you may have.

You should join if you are interested in teaching yourself software, meeting biweekly to discuss your progress, and eventually finding employment in web/software development.
