WHO WE ARE
The NC State Developers group consists of web and mobile application developers from across campus. We love getting together to talk about web stuff, and to share ideas on new technologies and tools. Join us!
Part of being a developer is building networks. In order to facilitate this need, the Office of Information Technology regularly organizes co-working days where any and all developers are welcome to come and collaborate with us and others, or even if you just need a break from the office.
- WHERE: Avent Ferry Building, Room 106
- WHEN: Every Friday
In addition, once a month, we invite developers from all over campus to come and speak about the cool things they’re working on. This sort of ongoing discussion promotes innovative thinking and constant growth, and it’s a great opportunity to practice future conference talks!
Typically, OIT Co-working is held at Avent Ferry Technology Center, Room 106. Occasionally, the venue may change due to logistical or scheduling conflicts, in which case the change will be announced via the web developers mailing list, as well as noted here.
Several groups within OIT-OCC provide office hours at Co-Working:
- OIT DESIGN (Jen, Brian, Lauren)
- Every Friday, 9 am – noon
- OIT ACCESSIBILITY (Crystal)
- Every Friday, 9 am – 11 am
To further improve the spread of information and awareness between developers, we leverage Google Groups and Slack to reach out to one another.
Just under 200 developers are currently subscribed to the NCSU Web Developer mailing list. There simply is no better way to get your message out to the masses, and get feedback in return. If you aren’t already a part of the list, we highly encourage you to join it!Join the mailing list
More recently, the Developers group has taken to Slack to improve the way we as developers communicate with each other.
Slack enables us to keep the conversations going throughout the week, as well as to help provide a direction for specific topics like conferences, trends in technology, and even to assist with planning and discussion about Co-Working.
We’re also pretty big fans of Slack integrations.Join Slack
WORKING ON SOMETHING COOL?
We’re always looking for people to contribute to our ongoing Co-Working talks. If you’re interested in sharing a little bit about your project, or if you have an idea and you need an audience to pitch it to, or if you just need a group to practice an upcoming conference talk, we’d love to have you.
