TW hosts: Cocktails & Code (for women* in tech) // Open Source

Details

*** Please sign up via this meetup group: https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/Cocktails-Code/events/257864544/ ***

Cocktails & Code is a cozy and rather small meetup where we talk about tech and IT, exchange experiences, learn from each other and try new things 🍹

In November we are going to talk about open source: What is open source, why should we care and how can you contribute?

Christine is a consultant developer at ThoughtWorks. She has over two years of work experience in software development and is very keen on growing her skills and using them to build systems and applications whose end results positively impact the world.

She is going to talk about how you can get started if you want to contribute to an open-source project, including some examples of projects that might be a good start, and her personal experiences as a software developer and a member of the open-source community.

We liked the book club edition quite a lot and encourage you to bring your favorite book or the latest inspiring online article that you read to share it with the community. Book swaps are welcome and of course not mandatory 🙂

Please note that we are taking photos for our social media channels. If you don't want to be photographed, you can let us know through meetup or during the event.

As always, we are looking forward to seeing you for a drink or two 🍹😍

Effi, Lena & Mai
