What we're about

This group is for those career-changers and grown-ups among us who are entering the whole wide world of software development (in all its forms) as "juniors." There are unique challenges associated with being a newbie in the tech field, but especially if you've got years of other (likely unrelated) work experience behind you! I am starting this group to talk about those challenges head-on, to provide a practice space for giving tech talks among those who are at a similar skill level, and to network among those badass former-fill-in-the-blanks who are just starting to whet their technical chops.

Saturday Morning Code & Coffee

Namu

Come join us for an informal co-working session at Namu! Work on your own software project, collaborate on someone else's project, learn a new skill, catch up on some work, study an online course, or just enjoy some tasty food while hanging out with fellow techies. Be sure to bring your laptop, and please remember to charge it beforehand in case there's a lack of outlets. This event is open and welcoming to ALL people of all backgrounds, including those of all skill levels and those learning or working on any skill set. We expect that everyone who attends our events will adhere to our code of conduct: **The Triangle Adult Junior Developers’ community shall be a harassment-free community, regardless of gender, gender identity, and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices.**
