Montreal Front End Devs unite!
I’ve been a making web sites for more than 15 years, but ever since I started to become more active in the web development online community last year, I’ve been keeping an eye out for any meetups, conferences, workshops, seminars (etc. etc.) here in Montreal, just to meet up with other Front End Developers and talk shop.
Perhaps I wasn’t looking in the right places, but apart from meetup opportunities that were more focused (such as WordCamp) or were not in my language (the monthly meetings by HTML5mtl, which would be perfect if I would just speak more French), I could not find any ways of hanging out with front end peers, apart from my (ex-) co-workers.
Now, I don’t have the time or means to visit conferences around the world all the time, so only one option left: start something new. The result is a brand new group on Meetup.com, Montreal Front End Developers.
And that’s what it’s really about: Front End Developers hanging out and chat about what they like doing. For fun and education. Cause yeah, we like Front End coding. And so if you do too, join up! You’re even welcome if you’re not from Montreal (but it would help) or if you don’t speak English (that would definitely help).
