What we're about

The Sydney Java Meetup is a community of peers getting together to share knowledge.

We're coders at heart and like to communicate through code! We have a GitHub organisation for the Meetup:


We encourage everyone to engage in the group, either through a talk, sharing some code or joining in a round-table. There's no judgement for not knowing something and experimenting is okay. We're all students together!

Talk slides and code examples presented are shared to a repo in our organisation.
