What we're about

So, there's a lot of us, devs, here in Crete. And every month - for the past 5 (!!!) years - we get together and discuss some community-chosen topic of interest. This group is an attempt at bringing us all together for informal chats about what we're all passionate about: technology and software. Join the meet up, learn, teach, speak your mind, sharpen your skills, share the knowledge and help us build a community where devs can openly exchange ideas !
