I love to code. It's something I want everyone to learn. I spend a lot of my free time teaching people I know, and I wanted to reach out to a larger audience. Coding: in this day and age it's a great skill to have. It not only adds to the ways we can solve problems, it also provides a language and context for sharing solutions to complex problems. In this meetup I'll be teaching you how to code. We'll start by learning how to find and run other people's open source code. That means we are setting up a development environment, installing a language, downloading some open source code, and installing the needed libraries to run a specific example. That will give us access to the best learning resource available, the deeply rich developer community. Once we see what the community looks like, then we'll start to look at how we can contribute and participate... See you at step one!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
