Code with Jason Meetup

Every Thursday evening at 9:00pm Eastern time, I do a one-hour Zoom session to talk about programming. These sessions are meant to be fun, informal and interactive.

I call this the Code with Jason Meetup.

Here are some examples of topics we might discuss during a meetup session:

  • How to keep a large Rails codebase organized
  • How to avoid refactoring too much or too little
  • How to write clearer, more understandable tests
  • What Docker is and how to use it
  • The purpose of private methods

Attendees will be welcome to participate and ask questions but there is no obligation to do so. I assume most attendees will want to passively observe most of the time, especially the first couple times they attend. That’s absolutely fine.
