Oakland Beginner's Programming Support Grouphttp://www.meetup.com/Oakland-Beginners-Programming-Support-Group/https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/c/0/f/global_435123087.jpeg20130902
This group was formed to motivate and support individuals who want to learn a computer programming language, who have little to no coding experience, and who live in Oakland.
Members study at their own pace and learn coding utilizing freely available online materials. We help members to stay on course and progress by facilitating study circles, pairing, and group discussions.
We explore and discuss practical applications for developing your programming skills. We are passionate about helping to nurture individuals with technological skills from within the Oakland community. We want to do our part in facilitating opportunities for Oaklanders to create technology, instead of only consuming it.
Our meetup group is comprised of experienced coders as well as newbies, and features more than just the HTML/CSS popular in beginning "programming" meetups.
We meet at Oakland’s original technology hotspot and salon, Tech Liminal in downtown Oakland. Check it out and join us! http://techliminal.com
If you would like to facilitate a study circle or organize a meeting, please email the meetup organizer and we'll get you listed on the site. Or, if you have an event or workshop located in Oakland, we are happy to list it, provided you are not charging for your meetup.
