    Very good. Useful summary of projects. Good intro to newbies. Need a bit more guidance in getting involved in projects.

    I live in Porter Square, Cambridge. I am a retired software engineer. I was a developer specialized in statistical computer modeling and User Interface design. I would like to know what could I do in Code-for-Boston. What is the best way to do so?

      Free pizza will be served at the meetup, though sometimes people bring food for themselves from local places if they're not interested in pizza. There's always a need for non-coders (we need diversity of thought!), so don't worry about being expected to jump on a project and start writing serious code.

      I don't code either, Patrick, and I still find ways to make lots of trouble. Come this week and find me, we can chat and see how you can cause some trouble, too! :)

    I have a project involving data analysis and visualization that I would like to pitch when space for a project opens up. Thanks!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
