While there are hundreds of meetups and networking events around the city for tech professionals to skill share and collaborate on new ventures, sometimes they can feel intimidating to someone who is just starting out in the industry, perhaps less than a year into their very first job or still searching for one. We may feel like we lack the industry experience and technical knowledge to be truly effective when it comes to meeting others in networking situations and conversing effectively about the latest and greatest technologies and trends, pitching a great idea that we might want to invest in or convincing someone else that we're the right person to collaborate with on their great idea.

This is the group for folks who are beyond "learning to code" in a basic sense, but not yet comfortable fully embodying our new or upcoming roles as "industry professionals". The experience of being new comes with its unique set of insights and challenges that we can share and explore with one another, in addition to being able to create a networking and collaborative space among us where no one needs to feel intimidated or less desirable for being inexperienced.

A preliminary brainstorm of ideas include: casual get-togethers, "hack days" or co-working sessions, group interview practice, studying a particular new technology together (potentially through building something), going to hackathons or other networking events as a group... Feel free to contribute your own!
