What we're about

We host events for and by software developers in Syracuse, NY. Our goal is to gather professional or aspiring devs together in real life to chat, learn from each other, and build out stronger networks.

We'll be organizing a mix of events not tied to any one programming language or framework. If you’re interested in hosting your own event, please reach out to the organizers and we’ll get you set up.

Aside from in-person events, we host a community Slack group. Learn more and sign up at https://syracuse.io/community

Women in Coding: Caffeinated Code Chat

Online event

This month Nicole is hosting a hybrid in-person & virtual coffee, code, and chat. Find her in the Salt City Market Cafe or on zoom! RSVP for the link.

The Salt City Market is in downtown Syracuse at 484 South Salina Street. The Salt City Market Cafe (and Bar) is on the north end of the market.

Women In Coding usually hosts a monthly meetup on the second Saturday of the month (first Saturday this month!). Each month we'll be teaching and group programming in a different language/topic. Usually no previous coding experience is necessary, although some familiarity with basic HTML and CSS can be helpful.

Comp Sci Book Club (On Hiatus)

Online event

Join us for Comp Sci Book Club! We meet on the third Thursday of every month.

Our first book is The Art of UNIX Programming by Eric S. Raymond. This month we'll be Chapters 4-7 of Part 2: Design.

We will be rotating discussion leaders each month. Let us know if you're interested in hosting a meeting and we'll add you to the schedule.

Join our Comp Sci Book Club on Amazon and suggest books for future Meetups here: http://bit.ly/compscibookclub

Book description: "The Art of UNIX Programming poses the belief that understanding the unwritten UNIX engineering tradition and mastering its design patterns will help programmers of all stripes to become better programmers. This book attempts to capture the engineering wisdom and design philosophy of the UNIX, Linux, and Open Source software development community as it has evolved over the past three decades, and as it is applied today by the most experienced programmers. Eric Raymond offers the next generation of "hackers" the unique opportunity to learn the connection between UNIX philosophy and practice through careful case studies of the very best UNIX/Linux programs."
