Community Group Spotlight: The Junior Dev Struggle Bus

The University of Washington has hundreds of student groups and programming that can provide you with the support you need to launch your career but sometimes it’s nice to get off campus once in a while and meet people in the community with similar career goals and interests. For the first Community Group Spotlight we are going to share information about the Meetup Group The Junior Dev Struggle Bus. Here is some information about the group below as well as ways for you to get connected. They host routine events in the community where you can meet fellow aspiring techies and even get some free information on coding in their resources page. Check them out!
