What is Webgeeks?

Des Moines Webgeeks was created to reach web enthusiasts of all types:

  • Experts and novices
  • Men and women
  • Designers, coders, marketers and business leaders
  • Backend or front end

We host several types of events throughout the year:

  • Instructional training
  • Hands-on “coding dojos”
  • Round table discussions
  • Social events

The best way to learn about our group is to come to one of our upcoming events.

Speaking opportunities

Do you have a topic you’d like to share? Great! You’ll find that our group is very friendly and we’ll help you prepare your idea to ensure it fits in with our group’s expectations and interests.

These formats work best:

  • 20 min instructional material – i.e. here’s a project I did and here’s what I learned from it
  • Hands-on dojo – Here’s a tool you should consider using, let’s use it on this simple “getting started” project
  • Round table – There are a couple different ways to approach this problem, what aspects should we consider as we decide how to solve it?

Once you’ve decided, contact our leadership team and we’ll get you scheduled.
