The Greater Boston Chapter of ACM has an ongoing series called “The Journeyman Programmer”.
Their next event is on Saturday May 19th and the URL for it is:

This will be a great event to learn as well as to meet peers and network – and is well worth the cost of $30 – and the time spent on attending it.

Programming – A Dream or a Rut?
Coding is the foundation of software development, but is only part of
the story. To move ahead in your career – or to have fun programming –
you need the opportunity to work in areas you like, to try new things,
and to grow professionally and personally.
This can be a challenge – especially if you are working on the same
code day after day. Join us at Harvard and extend your horizons with
this four part session on Programming – More Than Coding.
