Event description

Description


This event is for aspiring and junior software engineers to meet, learn from, and share experiences with one another.

Any and all experience levels, ages, races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations and personal pronouns are welcome.


Who this event is for

  • Aspiring software engineers - folks who want to get into software engineering
  • Less experienced software engineers - folks who are on the journey
  • More experienced software engineers - folks who want to mentor and/or help in other ways


What to expect

Expect to meet other like-minded developers.

When you arrive, you'll be asked to put your name & how you learned to code on your name tag.

There will be ample time to get to know each other, both before and after presentations.


What's the schedule?

  • 6:00 - 6:45pm: Social time
  • 6:45 - 7:00pm Welcome & group introductions
  • 7:00 - 7:30pm: Presentations
  • 7:30 - 7:45pm: Wrap up & thank you's
  • 7:45 - 8:30pm: Social time


Introductions

Introductions will be done in a small group format. Each person will be asked to briefly introduce themselves and share an experience with something that's currently challenging them.

After 10 minutes, we'll break from our groups and move on to presentations.


Presentations

We've got a mix of short demos and presentations this time around, but please bring your computer if you'd like to give a short project demo! Think MinneDemo, but smaller and more casual.


Getting there

Prime Digital Academy is located at 301 4th St. South #577, at the corner of 4th Ave S and 3rd St S, in the north building of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange. The building doors lock at 6pm, so either get there early, or look for a person or sign on the door with instructions on who to call to get let in.

We recommend public transit or biking - Prime is located one block from the Government Plaza light rail station, many bus stops (see below), and a couple bike-friendly roads.

  • Bus: the 3, 7, 16, 50, 94 bus lines run along 4th St. Prime is also a block over from the Gateway Ramp and Transit Hub, which is a terminal for many urban and suburban bus lines.
  • Bike: There isn't indoor bike parking, so you'll need to lock up outside.
  • Car: If you're driving, we recommend parking in the Gateway ramp, where we've got coupons for discounted parking. But parking is also available on the street or in the Haaf ramp.


FAQ

I'm a senior developer. Can I come and mentor?

Yes, definitely! Our members would love your mentorship, advice, and guidance.


Will there be food?

Yes! There will be pizza and non-alcoholic beverages.


Where can I get more information?

Lots of ways! We've got a Slack group, are building a website, and will be sending out emails to announce future events. But for now, just shoot us an email and we'll point you in the right direction.
