Don't code it alone

. June 28, 2012.

If you’re a programmer or other tech person, you might feel you’re unfairly stereotyped as a stay-at-home geek, bathed at all times in the light of your computer screen. But your work depends just as much on social interaction and cooperation as any other kind. Take a chance to get out and share ideas with people who know what you’re talking about, at CoffeeHouseCoders’ monthly meet-ups. The informal group was founded in 2008 to allow Ann Arbor area techies and hackers a chance to focus on projects outside of work in a supportive enviroment. It’s an opportunity to network, get new ideas, and maybe strike some creative sparks. Ann Arbor’s chapter meets at 8pm the first Monday of each month at Workantile Exchange, 118 S. Main St. (Though there are now Detroit and Downriver chapters, as well.) See www.coffeehousecoders.org for details.
