Getting Involved

As a member

SoDA offers many different ways for people to get involved with software development. The most common way to be involved is to subscribe to our mailing list , follow us on social media, and attend meetings. However, there is much more outside of that. We encourage people to present on topics ranging from workshop-based technical tutorials to academic research findings. If you are interested in presenting at SoDA, send an email to explaining your presentation and we will do our best to schedule your presentation. In addition to presentations, we always have a ton of projects that any of our members are invited to contribute to. If you are interested in leading your own project with SoDA, email describing your project and discussing why you would like to be a project leader. We also host, travel to, and compete in a wide range of coding competitions and hackathons. Travel expenses are always covered by SoDA so it is free for you!

As an industry representative

One of our goals as an organization is to provide industry opportunities to our members. As a result, we are always planning events with industry partners. Our event options include: information sessions, tech talks, technical workshops, industry-hosted coding competitions, and recruitment events. If you want to set up an event, or are interested in something not listed, please email and we will be happy to accomodate you. SoDA also offers a wide variety of sponsorship options.
