This month, Lisa Ma will be giving a lightning talk about how learning other programming languages will give you an edge. Hear why it's important to diversify your skillset and the coding languages, in addition to JS, that Lisa has learned and used.
A little bit about Lisa, in her own words:
"2X major computer engineering + biology —> got tired of Midwest —> Boulder (wow not endless cornfields) —> Galvanize Web Dev Immersive —> Web Dev Immersive Teacher —> Lead/Sole Software Engineer at hardware/software startup —> Gained a bunch of stories to tell/lessons learned —> Software Engineer at data-driven software startup —> More stories to come."
Everyone is welcome, no matter what level!
6pm : Arrive, socialize, grab some snacks
6:15pm - 6:30pm : Welcome/announcements
6:30 - 7 pm: Lightning talk and code along/coding activity
7 - 8pm : Project work, individual/group study/networking
The first half of the meetup will consist of eating, networking and a lightning talk. The second half is individual/group project time. Don't have a project you're working on? No problem, we'd love for you to come anyway. Start a group project with other meetup attendees. Brush up on your JS skills. Use our resource guide, google, and each other to create something awesome. Or just come to hang out and meet people!
Thank you to Galvanize for hosting us for this event! Can't wait to see you all there. Feel free to reach out with any questions you have.
