Fullstack Open Source ⚡️ 8th Light – Downtown LA

8th Light - DTLA
241 South Figueroa St. Suite 240
Los Angeles, CA



Check out last month’s show notes here on GitHub: https://github.com/fullstackla/pairing-meetup/issues/155

Get ready to roll up your sleeves and code on open source software (OSS) projects. Everyone is encouraged to pair up with new codes and dive into an OSS project.

This group is dedicated to improving the OSS universe and fostering a community of support for new contributors. If you are a new contributor to OSS this is an excellent place to start. We are here to help you find projects you can get excited about and provide resources to help you on your way.

If you’re a seasoned open source committer/maintainer, we love you. Come show us how it’s done. We are a truly captive audience. If you have a project you’d like to introduce to the group, feel free to reach out ahead of time so we can set something up.

While everyone is welcome, it is recommended that you have done some coding in the past. With coding, the first few steps can be the hardest. We are happy to assist everyone at all levels. The focus of this group is on open source contributions and getting folks past the first, tenth and hundredth pull request.

First Principals

Pair programming – All the coding is done in pairs, so you’re never without someone to code with. Pair programming with new people is a great way to make new friends. Old friends are welcome, but be ready to pair with new ones.

Test Driven Development – We do our best to follow the test driven approach to building software.

Projects – Our focus is on projects in common use. The intention is, that people who participate in our events feel they have contributed something of value to a project others rely on and use.

GDI Costa Mesa Study Group

Peet's Coffee
424 East 17th Street, Costa Mesa, CA



Join other GDI students who are learning web development. All levels are welcome, so whether you’re just getting started with your first HTML class or whether you’ve got the basics down and are moving into intermediate or advanced territory, you’re welcome to attend! Beginners are especially encouraged to attend and participate in study groups – it will really help you to grasp new concepts and push your skills to the next level.

GDI Study Groups are relaxed, informal, and are intended as a way for our community to work and play together while providing each other with ongoing support and feedback. Hang out with like-minded students for an evening. This is not a hackathon or an advanced meetup – this is a relaxed place for all of our students to spend time coding together. We’re very friendly and would love to have you join us!

Whether you’re looking to keep practicing what you learned in your last class or are in the midst of a project, our community is here to help! As a group, we’ll hold each other accountable for completing our projects and lessons, and provide ongoing support to one another as we learn and grow as coders.
