December 2020 Schedule and Community Update
Our community is approximately 8 months old and growing, and as we grow we are learning. In that same time, we have helped at least 7 people find new roles, many of those people were without roles. Our community is amazing.
Learning #1 Human Interaction on Zoom > Twitch.com/CantonCoders
At the start, Canton Coders was intended to be a meetup that met once a month at the Canton Public Library in Canton, Michigan in person. For obvious reasons, we’ve pivoted online. We’ve experimented with numerous livestreams and lean coffees, and what we believe to be true is that our community needs human interaction like an in person meetup, and that is why we’re opening zoom in December to our livestream with Guy Royse.
Learning #2 (Virtual) Lean Coffees are “hot”
Learning #3 We over saturated the livestream market
As our attendance numbers dropped, we learned based upon the valuable feedback from the community, we were doing too much! Based upon this learning, we’ll be reducing our livestreams to once a month – until we learn that more is needed.
As always, we’re grateful our community, and we look to the future to grow more people. Checkout our events.cantoncoders.org and join our slack.cantoncoders.org today!
