Here’s a peek at our upcoming events for July. We’ll update this post as new things are added, but these are all listed on our events calendar as well. Most descriptions are from the events’ respective sites.


CascadiaFest 2015 – July 8-10
CascadiaJSFest is a three-day, community-driven conference on the cutting edge of JavaScript and CSS. Browser, server, OS – we cover it all.

Other Meetups:

Seattle.rb Monthly Meetup – July 7
Seattle.rb was the first Ruby and Rails user group in North America and has met regularly for over a decade. We convene every Tuesday night to contribute to open source, work on personal projects, and teach and learn from one another. All skill levels are welcome!

Beer&&Code– July 8, & 22
Beer&&Code is a coder’s meetup in Seattle. A typical Beer&&Coder likes to use any programming language for work or for fun, enjoy a tasty drink, meet other Beer&&Coders and be a part of a community, and be challenged and learn from others. Whether you are new developer, a veteran, a designer, or none of those, you can hang out at Beer&&Code.

Design Thinking & Innovation Collective – July 23
Seattle Design Thinking & Innovation Collective aims to bring people together from a wide variety of industries, backgrounds and roles to collaborate and discuss practices, methodologies, tactics and experiences to help us collectively bring innovative ideas to the world.
