Meetups Programming Tampa Bay

The “Think Like a Coder!” meetup: Monday, October 4

I’m bringing back my Tampa-based programming meetup! It used to be Tampa iOS Meetup, and then Programmers of Portables, but I’m broadening its coverage and renamed it Think Like a Coder!

Think Like a Coder! is a meetup with a mission, which is to help with the programmer’s biggest challenge: How do you apply what you’ve learned about programming to actually write programs? How do you take what you’ve learned about loops, branches, functions, objects, and so on and turn them into applications?

During each meetup, we’ll take on a problem and try to solve it with code. As with my other meetups, these will be “code along with me” exercises — we’ll all learn by doing.

The meetup’s first session will take place ONLINE on Monday, October 4th at 7:00 p.m., and the exercise will be to answer a very “Florida” question: Are Publix subs on sale?

This session will cover scraping — the process of reading the contents of web pages — and then performing actions based on those contents. We’ll work together in JavaScript (and possibly Python) to look at how we can write a program that can answer the question “Are Publix subs on sale?”.

Join us ONLINE on Monday, October 4 at 7:00 p.m. for the first session of Think Like a Coder!
