What we're about

Welcome to the WebApp Builders Meetup Group!

Fullstack WebApp Development Weekly Meetup:
Group Study, Tech Talks, Live Coding, Project Review, & Group discussion.

Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley. (like, toooootally the *Valley!*)

We are a weekly study group, coming together to improve our skills as full-stack WebApp developers. We study together to keep sharp, code together, and stay abreast of the latest trends and technologies.

Share best-practices with developers building WebApps using the latest backend MVC (MV*) frameworks, together with the latest front-end frameworks. Our environment is very welcoming, both to senior developers as well aspiring full-stack developers alike.

Note on Experience Level:
We are open to all developers -- please come join us!

If you've already done tutorials such as Hartl's Rails Tutorial or gone to one the "Bootcamps" such as General Assembly, this is a great group to maintain your skills, keep you up-to-date with software industry best practices, and explore fresh technologies as they emerge.

We are a technically diverse, curious group of developers jumping into web technologies including full-stack frameworks, front-end framework, and build tools as well as DevOps.

Some of the Web Application Fullstack Frameworks we are looking at:

Django (Python)
Flask (Python)
Laravel (PHP)
Rails (Ruby)
Drupal (PHP)
Symfony (PHP)
Node.js (Fullstack Javascript, MEAN, MERN, Sails, etc.)

JavaScript Frontend Frameworks:
React
Vue.js
Angular
Elm
Svelte
JQuery
and Plain Old Javascript

Also focused on DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes, CI/CD, and build tools.

AND many more...

*This group is meant for developers. Beginners through professionals are welcome, but please come prepared to learn. We love participation!

**The is not a place to pitch your business ideas, nor for recruitment.
