TDevs - Personal Finance and Real Estate 101 @ [TBA Venue]

Embarc Collective

Hey y'all!

We're hosting a non-traditional topic that most of us end up learning later on in life. This is how to handle your personal finances, how to manage your money long term. And as a seperare topic, everything you should know about buying property if you've never done it before.

These topics do get a lot of flak because it always ends up being a sales pitch. We're going to do our best job in ensuring it is not, and providing you tools and resources that are widely available on the web. Important things that everyone should know in regards to personal finance and real estate, from a software developer's perspective.
