Attend to Meet Our Coders
"Hi, I'm Andrew. I am a full stack developer, who is always looking for opportunities to learn new things and share what I know with other people. I started the Brampton Coffee 'n' Code meet-up with the help of the library when I noticed that there was a lot of talent in Brampton but no real community around technology. I look forward to meeting you!"
"Hi, I'm Suhas, a developer, with a science and math background. I love learning new things and sharing my knowledge with others. I am interested in Blender, Unreal Engine, music, and anything that involves programming and physics. Feel free to talk to me about anything you are passionate about."
"Hi I'm Paul. I'm currently a computer science student and going to Brampton Coffee 'n' Code has been a great experience! It has allowed me to meet and network with the tech community in Brampton."
"Hi, I'm David. After completing a web-development boot camp, I landed my first job as a software developer. The networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities I've experienced while being a member of Brampton Coffee 'n' Code have really helped me pursue my goals."
