Meeting format

  • Announcements
  • Beginner talk
  • Short break
  • Intermediate to advanced talk

Beginner talk

Hello World! A lot of experienced programmers feel like beginners with C even if they used it in school if they haven’t used it extensively since then. Students, and people who might need a refresher should both feel comfortable in this part of the meeting.


The second part of the meeting will have a set start time such that people can skip the first talk. Announcements include telling people about projects they are looking to collaborate with, upcoming events, and “We’re Hiring”.

Intermediate to advanced talk

Could be almost anything. Starting a new hobby operating system? Programming spin control on a rocket? Writing a fast paced 3d video game? Bootstrapping bare metal via a JTAG debugger? We’d love to hear about it.

2nd Tuesdays at Crowd Compass doors at 6:00PM, and first talk at 7PM
