WWCode SF Backend Study Group

NOTE:

1. In order to encourage attendance and interaction, these sessions will no longer be recorded. This was our policy before the pandemic, to encourage people to attend our events and provide the speaker with an engaged audience. Because the world is re-opening and we have seen attendance drop significantly, we have decided to return to our no-recordings policy for this series.

2. Please come prepared with questions! We want to try to make these sessions more interactive. Since we are not recording we hope everyone feels more comfortable sharing their questions and interacting during the session.
