We want to build a community for current and prospective Udacity students of all Nanodegree programs to gather together and advance their education. Our mission is to bring accessible, affordable, engaging, and highly effective higher education to the world. We believe that higher education is a basic human right, and we seek to empower our students to advance their education and careers. Education is no longer a one-time event but a lifelong experience. Education should be less passive listening (no long lectures) and more active doing. Education should empower students to succeed not just in school but in life.
We gather every 6-8 weeks to get to know each other, form professional connections, motivate and encourage each other to work through course content as well as host interesting events such as speaker series and hack-a-thons that takes learning beyond the virtual classroom. Can't wait to see you soon!
The Udacity Auckland Group is a community where you can exchange your learning experience with other Udacians in Auckland area. We encourage everyone who has the desire to connect with Auckland development community to join us. Members are welcome to suggest any topics and events. Enhancing your online experience with in-person meetup is our final goal.
