Thinking about gratitude, then thinking about gifts, and thinking about CodeSchool and Khan Academy and the whole rest of the internet, we who choose to learn a new programming language are pretty darn lucky. Come hang out with us this Thursday, for our last meeting of the year. Then make a resolution to explore a new language and join us in January.
Don’t forget. One of the services we offer our members (and you’re all members) is the opportunity to solidify and refine your understanding by giving a 20-minute presentation on something you’re learning. Use the sign-up form to claim a spot.
See ya Thursday!
The Group: Polyglot Programmers of Austin is a new programming language study group, open to all who are interested in learning a new language (or their first language). No lectures or prepared course materials; no restrictions on what programming language you’re learning. This is set-aside time for self-paced study, with company.
Member Presentation: At 7:30, we’ll break for a 20-minute presentation from a member of the group. (Volunteer in advance.) The best way to master a new skill is to explain it to others, and although it might be awhile before you’re ready to present to the large user groups in town, you’re welcome to practice with us.
What to Bring: Your laptop. Your coding projects and study materials. A snack if you wish.
Join us this Thursday for coding and fun. Accruent will stop by to provide dinner (salads and sandwiches) and answer questions about their company.
Are you experienced in the Microsoft .NET technology stack? Now is the time to join Accruent as a Senior Software Engineer and help push their products to SaaS! Bring your projects and also hear more about this growing company.
See ya there!
We’re not changing our core pattern, 2nd and 4th Thursdays, but we have some exceptions as we cruise into the holidays. For October, November, and December, we will meet only on the 2nd Thursday of the month. The 4th Thursdays in November and December fall on Thanksgiving and Boxing Day, and it turns out a Headspring event has landed on the 4th Thursday in October, knocking that one out, as well.
But don’t let that stop ya! You know we have that discussion list; feel free to invite folks to a coffee shop.
And you know what the best antidote to a coding craving is, don’t you? Volunteer for CTX GiveCamp!
We’ll resume the regular pattern in January. Meanwhile, we’re just once a month, on the 2nd Thursday, for the rest of 2013.
Wow, the weather is cool. You know what else is cool? Coding with friends! (Oh, hush; you come up with something pithy twice a month.)
- Transform US weather data
- Build a .NET MVC based REST API
- Use the API(s) to populate an app
Bring your laptop and your projects. See ya there!
