Developers Unconference at TECX19

Lexington Public Library, Central Library

Get Feedback. Learn New Skills. Share Your Struggles. Come Share Your Code With US. If you've never participated in an unconference the basic idea is that at a conference the attention is on the stage, at an unconference the attention is on the attendees. It reverses the arrangement and that's why its an 'un'-conference. In practice, what that means is that the most attendees bring a topic to share and register those topics in the morning while we're munching donuts and coffee. Then everyone votes on what they'd like to hear about and we follow the wisdom of the crowd (democracy in action, folks!). You're also very welcome to come and vote and listen and learn even if you're too shy to give a talk. Plan for your topics to be 15, 25, or 45 minutes. We've going to group the talks by skill level as well, so we're sure to deliver information at the speed the audience is already at. We're going to send out a call for presentations as we get closer to the event and will open voting the day before the event. Ticket Required - First 100 Students are FREE Schedule and details here: https://www.tecx19.com/schedule/thursday-sep-19#unconference Purchase tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tecx-tickets-63022885146

If you do not have a project, you are strongly urged to create a project focused on assisting children, their families and their friends with suicide prevention and sustainable suicide prevention resources. Build an app, do some research, create a community to assist in this effort. A good example of technical solution is the notOK app (https://www.notokapp.com/). Details Awesome Inc – 20 to 21 September, 2019 Hardware Bring your laptops if you plan to work on a technical project.

Open Code - Lexington

Awesome Inc.

The purpose of Open Code is to provide a safe place for developers to code in the company of each other. We want you all to feel welcome; whether you are experienced or just trying to figure out how to get started. You will find many people at our meetup working with different technologies and programming languages. This is encouraged! If you are stuck on a problem and looking for help there may be a developer there experienced in that technology who is willing to help. It happens often! We do not have any particular format, and we will not be presenting any content. We do have a brief round of introductions at about 6:15 just to help break the ice and get to know each other a bit. Although everyone is welcome, including recruiters, we ask that they give their pitch briefly during introductions and allow developers to approach them. Please allow people to code. Please help us maintain a safe and inviting environment for all kinds of people by reading and adhering to the Bluegrass Developers Guild Code of Conduct (https://www.bluegrassdevs.org).
