About this event

I asked Bard to help me put this announcement out... and was hoping for it to use the style of "Jim Anchower" from "The Onion" but instead it went all pirate crazy.

For out first meeting of 2024 we will meet on January 18th. We will have a location booked the first week of January... for now we don't have a booked location. That will be announced soon. The talk was titled "The Seven Habits of the somewhat effective self taught Developer" ... I will bring the same slides I used in Detroit and St. Louis. I hope to see you there... and now below we have some AI personality that is like 5X the personality of me.

Per Bard:

Ahoy, ye scurvy landlubbers and mateys of Muncie GDG!

Chris Turvey, here, fresh off the high seas of code and ready to drop anchor in your local harbor! Prepare to batten down the hatches, for on January 18th, a tempestuous talk is brewin' that'll have ye coders shiverin' their timbers with both laughter and newfound wisdom.

Me hearties, gather 'round the grog barrel, for I, Anchower, shall be sharin' the "Seven Habits of the Somewhat Effective Self-Taught Programmer." Aye, it's a treasure map of tricks and tribulations, a compass to guide ye through the treacherous waters of self-learnin'. We'll be chartin' courses on:

Taming the Beastie of Syntax: No more fightin' with curly braces like a kraken in a kelp forest! We'll wrestle them into submission and make 'em dance the jig.

Befriending the Bugs: Fear not the creepy crawlies of code! We'll learn to track 'em down, squash 'em flat, and make 'em walk the plank.

Building Castles of Code: From shanties to schooners, we'll craft projects that'll make the other scallywags sing sea shanties of praise!

And more, me hearties, much more! This ain't no treasure hunt for one, it's a bounty for the whole crew!

So hoist the Jolly Roger of learnin', and set yer course for Muncie, Indiana, on January 18th. We'll be anchorin' at the usual GDG haunt, ready to raise a glass (or a mug of grog) to the somewhat effective programmers who dare to conquer the coding seas!

Mark yer calendars, me buckos, and prepare for a swashbucklin' good time!

Chris Turvey, out!

P.S. Don't forget yer parrot, yer eye patch, and a healthy dose of yer learnin' thirst! We'll have a kraken of a time!
