As professionals in a tight-knit community, we all know that there is a pipeline problem, and most jobs are procured based on who you know. I believe that putting together this event is a great way for us to meet peers, connect and develop relationships that can help us all not just personally but professionally.
There will be executives, managers, and engineers ready to connect.

This is a group devoted to Ruby, a great language used for things beyond rails. We talk about Sinatra, Deep dives into the workings of Ruby, other things we find interesting as Rubyists and practicing Ruby by doing katas in the second half of every meeting.
This group is focused on Clojure and related Lisp languages specifically Common Lisp and Scheme as they strongly influence the approach Clojure takes. Java is a foundational system for Clojure, but the focus is not on the Java language, but the JVM and associated libraries that are the power base for Clojure. Functional programming, multi-methods, etc. will be discussed and demoed with the focus on real-world uses and power. Abstraction and advanced techniques will be discussed as well. We’re looking for people who want to talk, demo as well as give lightning talks at the REPL so that people can follow along.
Topics include Clojure for creating MineCraft bots, Clojure for Social Data Mining, etc. See you at 7PM!
We are the premier VR League in Austin, hosting tournaments and contests. Join the fun, friendly, competition at real life locations in a number of multiplayer experiences and games. Many VR games are intuitive and fun, and anyone can be playing in minutes.
