A few updates recently,
Have been getting more settled and began outreach for devs here in the Jacksonville FL area. Just yesterday I officially started the JAX FL SAFE Pod Meetup page, but have yet to have any Jacksonville residents join yet, which I need. Maybe I'll change the title to something more welcoming, like "Learn to code" group or "Collaborative Coders" group or "Open Coding Workshop" IDK. Want to get more people coming out and working on apps and learning SAFE together, most likely here at my house, which is in a super convenient location juts 8min from downtown and near many other JAX developers meetups.
So in the spirit of reaching out and getting this FL SAFE Pod going, I am continuing to go to local Meetups and meet people. Yesterday I went to a nearby "Desktop Linux Users Group" and it was fine. Mostly only users with little interest in programming so I don't think I wll be coming back, but I definitely learned useful things about the different distros there. I should have realized from the "Users" part of the title that no programmers would be present oh well live and learn. I have provided a quick video visual and an entire recording of the voices, which was very easy and I have been meaning to start doing. I will record all future events with the voice logs in the future as well, as it is much easier to leave my phone on the table recording than it is to try and record a video of everything (and it's mostly just people sitting around a table anyway).
Will continue these efforts and as always will continue to give updates when I have them!
Very excited to see what my new city has to offer!
