About this event

I think I am speaking for everyone when I say that we would like to see all of us come together and create something that will be sustainable and supportive for the Hudson Valley Tech community, and beyond.

We have been supporting and participating in a local community called Hudson Valley Tech. We are in the process of reinvigorating this community with some online and physical events coming up over the next few months. To this end let's devote this Coding Club session to brainstorm and put together a full set of ideas to forward this community.

Prior to the pandemic we've been meeting in person as very local meetups - HVTech, HV Startup, Coding Clubs, #HudsonValleyCanCode (all Hudson Valley, NY).

Our online efforts varied for different meetups and locations. Technology is geo-agnostic, and many people moved to different locations, and new people are seeking to create an impact locally.

We now want to start again from the ground up. We have learned how beneficial it is to find and serve similar-minded people that are remote and location agnostic.

With all due respect to the hyper-local community HVTech once was, #HudsonValleyCanCode and our GDG Hudson chapter are moving forward to fully take advantage of our new reality and welcome old and new developers and those who are newly entering the tech field. We'd like to brainstorm what is needed.

Let's work together to reinvigorate HVTech to, once again, be a great resource for our extended community.

As usual, you can expect a lot of networking opportunities as well as collaboration. Be prepared to introduce yourself and connect with similar minded people.

  • We can also address a few learning opportunities provided by GDG community, including Road to certification by Google.
  • You can showcase your projects and collaborate with Purpose.
  • Always happy to provide some career guidance / counseling on your learning journey and objectives.
  • We always want to do some fun hands-on practice using Code Wars - are you ready for it?

We encourage you to network and create the meaningful connections.

Keep learning attitude: In such disruptive industry like tech we have to continue learning to get up to speed with the industry speed. Share with us what are your learning objectives, and how we can assist you with co-learning activities.

Welcome to join, let's help each other. We encourage questions and collaborative challenges, showcases and co-learning opportunities. So we are open - as our organization - is.

• Important to know: Coding Club is a volunteer-based activity. We are looking forward to meet local techies and web pros as well as total novice who is interested to start this Coding/WebDev journey. We will work together as community to help each other to learn and grow.
