The Northwest Arkansas Developers Group (NWADG) is a place where technical peers interact and expand each other's knowledge bases.
The NWADG is a great place to develop your presentation and pulbic speaking skills by practicing with topics relevant to your peers and your industry.
Learning without others can be difficult; you need to leave the echo chamber and bounce your ideas of off peers for them to evolve into greatness.
The greatest method of learning is by teaching; diving into the "guts" of a topic in order to gain a high level of understanding.
Everyone has a different perspective on topics; the NWADG meeting is a great place to expand upon topic's in greater depth.
