Upcoming Events for Developers and Those That Want to Learn
Hack Upstate VI may be over, but there are still great ways to connect with others in the local development community. Make sure you get out before the snow starts to fly and take advantage of some great upcoming networking and learning opportunities.
Saturday, October 24th:
You may have met Alison McCauley, one of the Hack Upstate judges and head of Code Like a Girl (formerly Ladies Learning Code). She is teaching another Python 1 course on at The Tech Garden. The course is completely free and open to women or those that identify as women. Sign up here.
Tuesday, October 27th:
You probably heard Max Matthews singing the praises of Meteor during Hack Upstate VI. Here’s your chance to learn more about the platform. You can get a great intro tutorial at Syracuse CoWorks offered by the local Meteor Meetup. Sign up here.
Or perhaps you are more interested in building for the Windows 10 platform? On the same night, CNY Developers Meetup is hosting an introduction to the Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform. Sign up here.
Thursday, October 29th:
Syracuse CoWorks will host a series of coding and lightning talks about the various coding education and training classes offered in Syracuse. Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming Tech Meetup announcement.
Interested in learning more about MySQL and PHP? The Syracuse PHP Users Group will be offering a presentation by Timothy Boronczyk on how these two technologies to create dynamic, data-driven, web-based applications. Sign up here.
2nd Tuesday of Every Month:
OpenHack Syracuse meets at Syracuse CoWorks.
We can always use more tech events in Syracuse, and there is no shortage of local and regional businesses that want to participate in helping groups, especially groups focused on the educating others, get off the ground. It seems like the third week of the October is pretty packed with events, and that tends to be the case for most months. We are running a bit light on hardware events and with SALT Makerspace recently moving and reopening, it may be a month or two before they are able to start hosting their classes again.
All that being said, your presence at events is what helps grow the Syracuse developer network. Hack Upstate does a great job getting everyone together, educating people, and creating connections. Let’s keep those connections going until the spring Hack Upstate. I hope to see you at some of the upcoming events over the next couple weeks.
