A casual virtual weekly chat that is open to everyone and anyone. A place to ask questions, hear different viewpoints, and, most importantly, get to know your fellow Dev Edmontonians and developers from around the world.

Every week there is a new initial software development topic to get the conversation started.  For startup week the initial topic communities, both online and in-person.  What do you think makes a good community?  A bad community?  If you have built a community what lessons did you learn?

Speaking of communities you can find the Weekly Chat community online at the #meetup-weekly-chat channel on the Dev Edmonton Slack:

And also on Meetup:

Alberta's tech sector is growing rapidly, so is our need for sustainable talent. On the other hand, we have a young, vibrant, competent and resilient immigrant talent pool that we're not making the best of. 

What would it look like if we can redesign and optimize the newcomer-economy interface and once again make Alberta the first choice for new Canadians? 

Join Immigrant Techies Alberta in this panel discussion as we explore this topic.
