When it comes to working in the IT industry, most people choose cities like Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad, and Chennai. But there are several other cities in India where the software industry is slowly expanding. Mumbai is one such city. In fact, this is the place where the IT Services industry was born(in 1967).
Needless to say, the city has several places where regular meetups are conducted–by industry experts. Web development meetups usually consist of free-of-cost lectures and code-along sessions. These are not coding boot camps but simply events where you can meet like-minded individuals in your city.
Here are the 6 web development meetups you should attend in Mumbai
Interested in learning about Python, Django, or Flask? Mumbai Python Meetup is a group where people working in several disciplines of web development congregate to share and learn about programming. Their main focus is on the Python programming language.
As the name suggests, Thane Full Stack Developers is a meetup group for full-stack developers residing in the Thane area. Anyone who wishes to become a full-stack developer and learn about the career path can join this group for free. Events are conducted at a popular co-working place “WeWork” in Thane.
Interested in WordPress development? Whether you are just a WordPress user or a developer, you can attend their events held once in a month. The group has some basic guidelines that one has to follow. The main purpose of this meetup group is to have the WordPress community thriving in every part of the city. Events are conducted at Paytm Insider and FOSS.tech.
5) Mumbai Startup Ecosystem by StartupBlink
Mumbai Startup Ecosystem by StartupBlink is a community for tech entrepreneurs in the city. Even people who work at startups attend their meetups.
Every Sunday, they have a co-working session in a popular Starbucks cafe. After a tough week, these sessions can be invigorating. All you have to do is carry your laptop to the cafe. Except for your coffee, you don’t have to pay for anything.
This is a web development group dedicated to women as well. Women who work in IT job roles like software engineers, web developers, software analysts, UX/UI designers, and data scientists can immensely profit from their events.
Moreover, the IT industry is generally male-dominated. Most of the key positions are occupied by men. This group encourages women to compete for those key positions.
From the above list, I hope you find a web development meetup group suited for your needs. I have selected these groups from a platform known as meetup.com. In the comments section below, let me know how your first meetup experience was.
