What we're about

Welcome to GRWebDev powered by LaFleur!

We are a group of web developers in the Grand Rapids, MI area. We discuss all aspects of developing for the web, from HTML, CSS, and Javascript to design, user experience, usability, accessibility, and tools.

Whether you write code, write content, design, or manage, when you work on the web there is a lot of common ground. Join us to learn from each other about best web practices, cross-browser compatibility, Javascript frameworks, style hacks, project management, and other web-related topics.

Our meetup is for the community, by the community. If there is a topic you would like to present, we'd love to hear from you! Submit a presentation idea here: https://forms.gle/p8YWaaGLBAR4XZVb8

Friday Morning Code + Commiserate

Online event

As a developer, it's very easy to fall into the same routine: get up, go to work, deal with the project(s) on-hand, go home. But how are we keeping our skills sharp... and up to date? Once you're submerged in the grind, it can sometimes be difficult to rise to the surface and spend time improving your toolset. We feel your pain: we're in the same boat!

Join us on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month as we grab a morning beverage, fire up Zoom, and take time to dive into the latest dev news, share tips and tricks, and commiserate in general. This is an informal study group where we are all peers, learning from and sharing with the others.

The rules? Be professional, be humble, be kind. Dust off the keyboard, turn on your mic and camera, and let's talk code!

NOTE: Our regular meetup cadence falls on both Thanksgiving weekend as well as Christmas Eve; we will not be meeting on those dates (11/26/2021 and 12/24/2021).
