Code & Coffee

We're all learning to code, whether you've just decided to get started or you've been at it for years. Come hang out for a couple of hours on the last Tuesday of each month with some friendly fellow coders.

All languages and skill levels welcome. Bring a project you're working on or jump in on some pair exercises. Will you learn something new this week or be the one teaching? Probably both! Bring your own laptop and find out.

Thanks to our host, Table XI, a web and mobile app dev consultancy in the West Loop. They're sharing their space and their beverages with us. There's ample parking, several nearby Divvy stations, easy walk to Union Station, Ogilvy and the El.

    This was fun. Thought I'd share this video by a company called GoldieBlox who are developing toys for girls to encourage them into fields like engineering, etc. One line in the video is "Girls to Code the New app!" It could be the GDI anthem. Go Girls! Good to meet so many of you.

    Does anyone have a lightning talk that they want to share with the group this month?

      sure, how long are they?

      Nothing official, but should be 5 min-ish. Erin did one in Pecha Kucha format last month that was 6:40. It's a chance for you to practice a talk in front of a supportive audience.

    Will there be one in December?

    • Jen M.

      We're going to take a break in December because the last Tuesday of the month is New Year's Eve. We'll pick back up in January!

    I am on the wait list (AGAIN!). Just begging those of you that are on the list to please change to "no" if you aren't going so us wait-listed gals can come! :) Thanks!

      I'll be running late (won't be able to make it into the city until 6:40 or so, but still keen to take part). However, if that'll be disruptive, I can take my name off to make room for other waitlisted folks. Let me know!
