*Who should join* Anyone with a passion for web development & web design. Anyone with a passion for web development using either React, VueJs, Angular and Laravel, NodeJS, ASP.NET Anyone interested in entrepreneurship and with a desire to one day run their own business. Anyone who would like a mentor like figure to help them make the right decisions, to pick the right frameworks, anyone would like to enter the IT world but is not yet there. Anyone who is already an advanced web developer and would like to have another senior web developer to talk to, to discuss technology, trends, ideas, potential partnerships, etc
*Why members should join* If you join and attend the meetings you get first-person access to someone who has been in IT industry since 2000, someone who has seen a lot of stuff and worked for big companies (Sony Mobile, IKEA), somebody willing to spend time to teach you new skills or give you advice what you could do to advance your carrier and get ahead in the game.
*What members can expect* I'm not sure of the format yet, this is the first time for me doing a meetup like this so first few meetups would be improvised, whoever shows up we could get to know each other and take it from there. What you can expect is one seriously passionate developer who would like to help the next generation of developers. If you join, are passionate about development and attend meetups it could change your life for the better.
*Who am I?* I've been in the IT industry since 2000, I'm a senior software engineer with a preference for web development. I've quit my job in 2016 and had to figure out how to start and run my own company which I started in 2017. It's not been an easy ride and anyone looking to one day do the same would find it beneficial to talk to someone who has already done it. I offer web development services in React, Angular, VueJs and Laravel and I can give you advice on how you can find clients in case you decide to try your hand at freelancing. Anyone who joins if you are able to pick up React, Angular or Vuejs quickly I'd be able and willing to help them find a dream position in the IT industry.
If you are a novice or would like to pick up some of the above frameworks, and are willing to put in the time and master your chosen framework I could help you get into the IT industry by recommending you to the right people in my network.
So if anything above resonates with you, join the group and look forward to the next meetup.
