This is a group for anyone (ALL skill levels) interested in advancing their programming skills through online courses from Udemy, Udacity, MITOPENCOURSEWARE, Youtube etc etc. We will meet once a week (provided enough interest) in the city area. We provide a community so that no one will have to be lonely when learning how to program. By learning together, we also prevent the long nights where we get stuck and instead can collaborate to find a solution together. Also, to truly imbibe the identity of a programmer it is essential to know others in your field and this group will help you with that. Hope to see you here!!
Hi guys! I am pleased to announce our first meetup. I have gotten a decent response so far so I am putting this out so as to get rolling and go on with the momentum.
The agenda is as follows. Please do come 10 mins early.

1930 - End
The venue is at 5 Pereira Rd, #04-03 Asiawide Industrial Building, Singapore[masked]. We are kindly hosted by Tinkertanker pte ltd, an education company in the software and engineering space.
The cost of the session is $9. If you are currently a student or cannot pay for any reason please do email me privately. I have done my best to reduce the cost to that of a meal and considering the non-profit nature of this meetup and the fact that it is 3 hours in length ($3 an hour) and that I need to cover rent and training materials, I think the price is extremely reasonable. This also means that no-shows are extremely damaging to the session's bottom line due to the materials that need to be prepared and the fact that their contribution is included in the rent compensation.
Due to the personalised nature of this meetup, please do fill up the following google form before coming in. This is to plan your resources and learning path BEFORE you come in (we will try to do it for you - with input from you), in order to make the most of the session time.
Thank you and I hope to see you there!
