Tech conferences can be busy and overwhelming places to meet people, especially if you feel like you don't fit in.

"By the Grace of Hops" is a diversity and inclusion mixer for Beer City Code attendees occurring the evening before the conference--and inspired by the indomitable Grace Hopper. We hope it provides people in under-represented groups in the tech industry a chance to get to know each other before the conference. 

We'll provide the hors d'oeuvre and drinks; you provide the friendly face. We hope it provides everyone an opportunity to meet a few other friendly faces that they can look for at the conference the following day.

Interested? Then join us at LaFleur Marketing for a night of food, fun, and inspiration. Not in an under-represented group in tech? No worries. Allies are welcome, too!

About the organizer

Beer City Code is completely volunteer-run and organized by developers with other developers in mind.  We are proud to offer all this at a very low cost to professionals and students.

Beer City Code grew out of the rapid growth and popularity of the GR DevDay conference organized by the West Michigan .NET User Group. These historical ties remain strong, but the scope of topics will reflect the diverse nature of modern software development.  A wide range of technology topics will be explored and developers of all backgrounds are welcome.
