I think it’s always nice to participate to Turku Frontend meetups, and frankly I’m not the only one who thinks so. You need to be ready when the registration for each event opens since they are always fully booked in minutes. The atmosphere of these meetups has been nice and relaxed, and I have always felt welcomed by the organizing company.
For me the best part is about learning new stuff. There has been a lot of topics in the past years that I had no idea about beforehand. The topics might not be something that you do at your work, but it’s nice to see what others do. And sometimes there might be a topic that I’m already familiar with, but I still get a different perspective to it from other developers.
