Tonight’s developer meetups (Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021)

Here are the developer meetups in Tampa Bay and surrounding areas that I think you might find interesting and useful. All of them are online!

Women Who Code Tampa — Lightning Talks (6:30 p.m.)

From their Meetup page:

Ever wanted to give a tech talk? Did you build something cool and want to share it? Want to workshop a presentation? Then this event is perfect for you!

A lightning talk is a short presentation. For this event, we are looking for about 6 people to give 10 minute talks with about 5 minutes for questions at the end of the presentation. We are looking for both technical and non technical talks related to programming, career support, education, or other relevant topics. Preference will be given to those giving their first presentation, but we will accept any level.

Tonight’s topics:

  • Breaking to Building: Bug Bounty Hunting for Developers (Justin Hurt)
  • How to Get Hired Fast After Tech Bootcamps (John Swartz)
  • The Importance of Hiring Women in Tech (Angelica Chadwick)
  • Git: Rewriting History with Interactive Rebase (Lydia Hendricks)

Suncoast Developers Guild’s Open Code (7:00 p.m.)

Hey, Tampa Bay developers — come meet your local peers at Suncoast Developers Guild’s Open Code! It’s where local people who work with code can get together, bounce ideas off each other, ask questions or look for help, and get to know each other. This is the kind of get-together that makes a city a tech hub.

From their Meetup page:

We don’t have any particular format, and we won’t be doing any presentations. But we do a brief round of introductions at about 7:15 just to help break the ice and get to know each other a bit.

GDG SunCoast — Android Study Jams (7:00 p.m.)

From their page:

Each week we will learn a bit more in our journey to become Android developers.

We begin by building different Android apps with the Kotlin programming language. This includes creating multiple layouts and adding user interactivity to our Android apps. We define navigation paths and start an external activity. You will learn how handle complex lifecycle situations and add logging.

We continue our journey by learning about architecture components, such as ViewModel and LiveData. We create a database using the Room library. And display a list of clickable items with RecyclerView. We will load and display data from the internet. Making our app more accessible for all users.

In the final weeks we learn the more advanced techniques of building Android apps using libraries, testing, Jetpack and more to increase the quality of your app

Orlando Elixir Users Group — Functional Data Structures in Elixir (7:00 p.m.)

From their Meetup page:

In this talk, presented by AJ, we will learn how Elixir lays out structures in memory, and how it behaves when we transform data immutably. Then, we’ll use this knowledge to guide how we choose data structures for a real world app.
