Join us for the first ever Code & Coffee Study Group! Whether you're looking to keep practicing what you learned in your last class or are in the midst of a project, your community is here to help!

This will be an informal event where members can meet each other and collaborate over coffee and snacks. TAs will be there to help troubleshoot and brainstorm ideas with you!

Have a project idea and some skills, but haven’t attended a GDI event yet? Want to focus on helping others with their projects? You're welcome too!

This is also a great event for first time attendees who just want to socialize. We're very friendly and would love to have you join us. :)

As a group, we’ll hold each other accountable for completing our projects, and provide on-going support and feedback.

Bring a laptop and something to work on. It's okay if you don't have a project! Here are some sites that you can practice with.

PairUpToCode Exercises

Code Academy

Khan Academy (JS)

Code School

Eloquent Javascript

JS Assessment

Feel free to come by for the whole thing or drop in when you have time.

Share what you're interested in working on in the comments.

A note to TAs: If you are interested in helping out with this event or a future study group, please let us know!

    Awesome meetup! I'm so glad I now live in a place like Philadelphia where it is possible to meet other people who are nerds like me!

    I like this concept a lot! I think the group will take form once those who are part of it get to know each other a bit better. Can we use the first 10 minutes (and also maybe the last) with laptops closed and meeting each other, sharing our projects?

    Have you tried University City Science Center for location? They have a big conference room space and I've heard that it's open to community events.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Sara. I just reached out to them!

      Have you reached out to the new coffee shop Square One on 13th and Spruce? I don't know who owns it, but it could be a great PR win for a brand new coffee shop.

  • Jeanne G.

    I can't commit to this without a location.

  • Molly

    I am not 100% sure I can come, but will try my best because I'd love to meet some other women who are working on coding. And I can try to make myself work on the very simple project I've been putting off forever...

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.
