Monthly (Virtual!) Meeting

Online event

Join us online for a virtual social hour (bring your own pizza). We're resuming monthly meetings virtually for the time being in a more casual format, akin to the social hour that kicks off our in-person meetings. Bring some questions if you need some office-hours, or just come and hang as we talk about the latest rumors and stuff we're working on. We'll be meeting via Zoom (link will be on Meetup after you RSVP).

Monthly Meeting @ IndyHall

IndyHall

Before the Meeting We meet out of Indy Hall, a co-working community in Old City. They’ve extended a discount to our group to come in early and work out of Indy Hall for the day. When you get there, mention CocoaHeads and you’ll recieve $10 off the normal drop-in rate (you’ll get in for $20). Many CocoaHeads members are also Indy Hall members, so you’ll see some of us around. Avoid the rush hour commute and join us! Meeting Agenda Social Hour When the doors open we kick off the meeting with our social hour. Don’t skip out on this - it’s the perfect time to say hi to new members, hack on a side project, and pick each others’ brains about problems you’re running into. Bring your laptop and take advantage of our helpful community to push through that problem you just can’t quite seem to Stack Overflow your way out of. The outside doors are locked by 7:00PM, so come join us for the Social Hour before the Main Meeting begins.
