Calling all women software coders in the Jacksonville, FL area looking to join a community that is supportive of current and aspiring female developers. We will talk about today’s technology landscape, bleeding edge tools and languages, computer science concepts, ways we can encourage younger generations of female developers, and share career guidance and mentorship.
We operate on a set of core values: Courage – Be fearless, confident and secure in your identity. Orient – Be intentional and purposeful, guided by your compass and what drives you. Destination – Accomplish your goals and fulfill your dreams. Empathy – Increase your emotional intelligence. Understand that everyone has a story and work to empower, enable, equip, and encourage others. Respect – Respect yourself and others. Don’t be afraid to fail, but have resilience and recover quickly. Be a role model!
All skill, education, and career levels are welcome. Let’s see how women in development coming together can impact our local community!
This is a chance for the group to share different tools or programs that have supported you in your coding, either professionally or personally.
We will do 5 minute rounds where you can talk about a specific tool that has really helped you with common coding issues that arise. You can talk about the tool, show a demo of it, share info on the resource, or share a personal project you have used this tool for!
** "Tools" can include practices, philosophies, and strategies that help you get your work done **
This will be informal, so no need to prepare a presentation (unless you want to)! Just a chance to learn from each other :)
If you for sure what to share, please let me know in advance! You can message me through the Meetup. However, there will be an opportunity to volunteer to share during the meetup as well!
As usual, please make sure to RSVP! See you then!
