Anyone with a desire to get to know others who are just getting started exploring the world of programming should join. Also, those who have been programming as a vocation or hobby and want to teach others are most welcome. Members join to learn more, challenge their skills and have fun. Our meet up group is really about learning what a career in programming might look like and to have fun meeting others who are in a similar place in their evolution. We will host speakers from businesses around town who can talk about the demands of jobs in front end web development. We will have projects members can work on – for example building a website for a local charity. Because our meet up group focuses on people who have previously been intimidated by programming, but have been curious to learn more, each member will have a story to tell and be in a different place; this will naturally lead to the building of relationships among members. Members will help one another evolve by being present and sharing. We hope to get folks from tech 'curious' to tech savvy!
• What we'll do
Want to begin building web applications? Do you have aspirations of being a web developer? Or do you just want to learn more about coding to advance your existing career in marketing, project management or any other business that uses the internet on a daily basis? Then plan to take advantage of a learning opportunity in your own backyard!
If you are curious about the program, join Savvy Coders' lead instructor and tech Guru, Alex Pearson who will guide you through a free crash course and inspire you to join our next 120 hour class (Savvy Cohort #3 2019 will begin June 17th). If you've tried learning online but thrive in an instructor led environment, then look no further.
