May Newsletter

Spring has finally sprung here in Alaska and to say that 2020 has been an interesting year so far would be an understatement.  We know that as individuals, Alaskans, Americans, and members of the world, we are adjusting to the new normal and that is no different here at the AK Dev Alliance.  We are diligently working to continue to provide world-class resources to all our members.  As we make these adjustments we would love to hear your comments and feedback on what we are doing well and what we can improve upon.

While we are working on solidifying the speaker for this month, our monthly meetup will go on as scheduled (Thursday, May 21st at 7 PM), and as with last month's meetup, our meetup for this month will be virtual-only, the details are below.

Message from the Director

April has been a whirlwind. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, many things have changed and although we can't meet in person, we've adapted our meetups to an online format with great attendance. We've seen a growth of participation and active members on slack. The conversation is lively! To help developers and remote workers be more connected, our #coffeeshop channel pairs random members each week for a chat. From what I gather, most are opting for happy hour ; )

I also want to congratulate 3 members for getting jobs at Microsoft, AWS, and Couchbase. We're small but we're mighty and our members are friendly and world-class.

As always you can find us on slack at
I hope to get paired with you for #coffee
