We decided to build an open source app: A Mentor/Mentee Platform:

"Find a mentor-platform: A matchmaking platform where people can find mentors already established in the tech scene. This will create a strong network and make rolemodels visible."

Find our project here: https://github.com/RailsGirlsCPH/mentor-mentee-platform

This meeting will be about taking the next step in designing our app, working on wireframes and discussing app architecture.

What is a Project Group:
A project group is a meetup where we regularly get together to learn from and with each other. You're warmly invited to join us regardless of you level or what you're working on. If you bring a project or coding homework we will do our best to match you with a skilled coach for your questions, or if you'd just like to learn, we will make sure to get you started on tutorials and resources.

Our beginners groups study the basics of programming in Ruby, javascript and react. The next level groups learn the basics of building a web application. More advanced groups maintain previously started projects and continue learning more advanced topics.

As an addition to the regular Project Group format, we are also having an idea workshop where we will come up with new project ideas together. It will be nice for attendees that there is always an ongoing project to contribute to and learn from. All coding levels and languages are welcome - we will try decide on a project where the workshop attendees' skills can be used best.

Throughout the evening we will have coffee, tea, soft drinks and dinner, all kindly sponsored by our host company Tradeshift.

We hope to see you! Get in touch if you have any questions.

We are limited to 20 guests, so if you plan to come and realise suddenly, even at the last minute, you can't, please let us know by sending an email to [masked].
