FCC Karachi Meetup # 6

Get ready for freeCodeCamp meetup # 6 .This time we’re focusing on pair programming along with an exciting JavaScript talk. So if you are a newbie developer, this is your chance to get yourself ahead in your career and if you are a mid-level or a senior developer we would love to have you with us as a mentor to this community, Let's contribute and be a part of something that has the potential to bring an educational revolution in Pakistan’s I.T sector. For pair programming, we’ll follow the roadmap of freeCodeCamp, in which we’ll be solving some of the algorithmic problems and will be working in groups divided based on their interests and skills, So please get yourself registered as early as possible, Although the event is free but registration is still mandatory.


Why register?
We know that this is one of the most boring parts of any event, But it’s as much important as it is boring. Now let’s talk about why registration is important for us, Well as you guys will read further below, This meetup mainly focuses on the concept of pair programming in which two people group together to learn from each other and solve problems together, And for grouping them efficiently we need to know before hand about their experiences and interests. It also helps us to get an idea on how many people are interested for our event so that we can prepare ourselves for the numbers.

Who We Are
We are a group of Programmers & Tech Enthusiast, who got together through freeCodeCamp’s E-Learning Platform. We believe in knowledge sharing with respect to the web technologies and current trends in market. We started this group to meet the outdoor tech enthusiast like ourselves and to build a community that can help individuals grow beyond limits.

Pair Programming:
If you are new to the coding world, you may have an image of the programmer as a solitary person coding by himself/herself in a darkened room, Well that’s not the case anymore as many companies all over the world are using a concept known as pair programming which can resolve some of the issues related to single person programming. Let's see how pair programming works below.

Pair programming involves two developers working at the same terminal. One, usually called the "driver" types in the code while the other one, the "navigator" reviews the code as the driver types it in. They constantly communicate while they are working and periodically swap roles. Pair programming is most beneficial when one developer is a senior and the other is a junior. It helps both of them to see and learn the things they both can not even think of if they were programming alone.

Special Announcement:
We are looking for Volunteers/Co-organizers to help us run these meetups more efficiently and frequently in the future. This is a non-paid position and we ourselves are volunteers who are trying to put something together so that people can benefit from it. In short we are trying to change how future programmers and software engineers are going to be made. If you are interested in our cause and want to contribute as an organizer let us now in the event and we will see where you can fit in the team. Note: We are currently only able to organize these meetups in Karachi, But if you think you can do this in your own city and need guidance we are open to help and guide. You can contact us at: fcc ! meetup ! pakistan | gmail ! com

We are thankful to Recurship for their continuous support in our cause. Thanks for providing us support, mentorship and place for our meetups, We love you.
