What we're about

Are you a Junior Developer or newbie in the Tech industry? Are you excited to be starting your career and want to celebrate your accomplishments with others? Maybe you sometimes feel anxious about work or question your own abilities? You are not alone!

JuniorDev Community is a home for all things JuniorDev, where we will connect you with not only your peers, but also industry experts, experienced developers, we'll have people share their stories, their failures, and there will be plenty of fun times!

We host a bi-monthly get-together known as the JuniorDev Social. Here we socialise and connect with our fellow Juniors to swap stories and share wins or disastrous fails (yup, those are normal) all while enjoying some food and drink provided by our generous sponsor; IRESS.

In the months that we're not socialising we'll be coding! Every alternate month will see the JuniorDev Code & Tell night. Bring your laptops, questions and be ready to work on side hustles, tutorials, walkthroughs... or whatevs - we'll have mentors on hand to help out.

And there's always heaps more happening too, other events that we craft especially for you!

Also, don't forget to sign-up to the JuniorDev.io (http://juniordev.io) newsletter! Every month we'll be sending you all the resources and tid-bits that we come across on our coding journey. So come and be apart of a local community of incredible developers sharing knowledge, laughs, fails and fun! Hit us up on Twitter for chats at @JuniorDev_io (https://twitter.com/juniordev_io)
