Introducing SpotCoders, a Free Coding Meetup

SpotCoders is a new virtual programming meetup that I'm starting! The meetup is open to anyone who wants to improve their JavaScript, TypeScript, and React skills by doing interview-style coding challenges in a small group environment. The problems will be targeted at beginner and intermediate level programmers.

The unique thing about SpotCoders is that it will be hosted in Spot, a virtual office & event platform. In addition to being more fun than Zoom, Spot also makes it much more intuitive to do things like splitting into smaller groups. All you have to do is walk to a separate room in the 3D virtual world! (I happen to be an employee at Spot, by the way. That said, this is a personal project of mine and the company isn't making money from the meetup.)

The first meeting will be Saturday, May 28th from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm US Eastern Time. Anyone who can make this time is welcome to attend! The meeting is limited to 12 attendees, so make sure to RSVP sooner rather than later if you want to come. I may open it up to more people in the future if the meeting fills up quickly. Once you RSVP, you'll be able to see the invite link for joining the Spot world.

Please read the group description on Meetup to learn about the format of the meetings and what to expect. You can ignore where Meetup is showing Raleigh, NC as the location of the group — they require a physical location even for entirely virtual meetups like this one.

I hope to see you there!
