Starting in 2019, WWCode Portland is partnering with Work & Co to start a new lunchtime event series called “Lunch & Learn.”
We will be meeting in a conference room to eat and learn about what members of our community are working on. We are asking 2-3 members to speak about their work or side projects for 5 minutes, focusing on the stack, tools, frameworks, and libraries used to build that project. No slides necessary. Our speakers will demo the project, dig into the code and design that made it happen, and answer questions about their project.
This event will take place from 12-1pm on Friday, Jan. 11th. This is a short event, so please arrive on time!
12:00-12:20 - Check-in + Grab food
12:20-12:30 - Intros from WWCode + Work & Co

- Project #1: Voice Memos app by Caterina Paun. This React app takes in voice input through speech recognition and uses speech synthesis for voice output.
- Project #2: Portfolio Redesign by mJordan Levine. This portfolio project is meant to be a blend of art (custom created illustrations), design (animations), and code (Gatsby) to show off both sides of mJordan’s skill set.
