Junior Focused Event: Turning Pro (May 23rd)


(John Mason) #1

Hey guys and gals,

So Greg Koscevic from our friends at Red Ventures has very kindly offered to give a talk to juniors on turning pro. He took web development classes from college and had to make the difficult transition from student/hobbyist to professional. Should be a really interesting talk with practical advice, especially for boot camp grads.

The tentative date is May 23rd 6:30-8:30.

Now we just need a venue. Was thinking Camp North End. Anyone have any connections there? @joshuamil perhaps?

Open to ideas! :+1:

Meetup announced!


(Jay West) #3

Bummer. Same day as the RIot meetup.


(John Mason) #4

Shoot @JayWest, you’re right… :thinking:

Does anyone have any opinions on this? Should we work towards rescheduling? Pinging @staff


(Joshua Miller) #5

Let me see what I can do @john! Always welcome at Skookum, but I’ll check on the Studio at CNE.


(Joshua Miller) #6

@john we’re no-go on the Studio at CNE this month, but they would love to host a future event (May is super-busy for them right now)


(John Mason) #7

ROVE can host us on Monday the 21st or the following Wednesday the 30th.

Does anyone have any opinions or preference?


(Jay West) #8

Either day works for me. :slight_smile:


(John Mason) #9

Ok, so Wed the 30th works better for our speaker, Greg. Going to update meetup to the 30th!

Darn it. Too many meetups! I’ll have to catch this one on the next go around. Got a AI & ML meetup in Davidson on the 30th.

Sorry for causing the scheduling change in the first place! :confounded:
