Hacking Hangout

Location visible to members

[UPDATE: We will only be meeting for an hour in this new format. We will be trying out something new! Come with updates on projects you are working on, things you need help with, or anything related!]

Hey Coders,

This is a monthly programming study group and networking meetup. You are welcome to work on anything you would like in our friendly and helpful environment. Coders of all abilities are welcome! Bringing a friend is highly recommended. Coding is more fun with friends!

Bring your projects and questions. If you are a beginner, we can help you get started. If you're an intermediate programmer looking for a challenge, we can help you find problems to work on.

Fiercely Frontend (Virtual)

Link visible for attendees

At this meetup I (Elze) will give a presentation on theming in React.js. It will be related to my previous presentation on CSS-in-JS in React.js, which I gave a few month ago, but can be easily understood without it.

(For the curious, here are the slides of My CSS-in-JS in React.js presentation )

----

Are you interested in front-end development? Join us in learning about JavaScript and React! This is an open hack night with a front-end related talk, come and meet other front-end devs and aficionados, work on projects, work through tutorials and help us build a front-end community in Austin. Feel free to reach out to an organizer if you have a talk you'd like to give or a topic you'd like to discuss.

Online (Zoom)

With our community’s safety in mind, we feel that it is our responsibility to make the difficult decision to postpone all Women Who Code in-person events. We will update meetup.com when we resume this meetup in person.
