Jackson Area Web & App Developers

Meet other local Developers to network, share knowledge, to review the state of the art, or to dream up new applications. Meetups are free
(as speech and beer).


This group is for professional web designers and developers looking to network with others in the industry, learn about new or emerging technologies, and for anyone looking to learn web development (beginner to advanced).

We talk design for the web, share experiences with use of different tools & languages, critique web sites, talk industry, business, employment news, and share motivations and inspirations. This group is intended to become a hub for all today's technologies that make up the Internet as we know it.

We meet monthly in informal settings (usually over coffee, drink and /or food) to network and socialize with other fellow web development professionals and enthusiasts.

Code of Conduct

All presenters, sponsors, and volunteers at any JAWAD event are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout every event.

The Quick Version

JAWAD is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of meeting participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any meeting or post meeting social activities. Meeting participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the meeting without a refund at the discretion of the meeting organizers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Sponsor staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the meeting organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the meeting with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a meeting organizer immediately. Meeting organizers will introduce themselves at the beginning of each meeting.

Meeting organizers will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the meeting. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all meeting venues, all meeting-related social events, and on the JAWAD mailing list.
