Code Jam

  • Mar 23, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come hang out and code on whatever you want (in any language)! Or if you're new to programming and want to learn Python or Ruby (makes Rails easier!) then we can help you get started (installing, giving you an overview of some basics) so that you can work through the exercises in one of the free online books depending on which language you want to learn! Learn Python the Hard Way or Learn Ruby the Hard Way (PS: "hard" = proper/thorough/best!).

What will you get out of these sessions? You'll meet other women who either want to learn to code or improve their skills. It's a fun, no-pressure environment where we can hang out and code while keeping each other motivated or help each other when we get stuck on something! The aim is to build up our skills so that we can work on some "community" projects together (so start thinking about what you'd like to do...) 

What do you need to know? Nothing - although typing will help!

What should you bring? A laptop! And a can-do mindset :)

Hope to see you there :)

This event is in collaboration with PyLadies ATL & Rails Girls Atlanta

      You should be able to get off at the Dunwoody Marta station and catch a bus or walk to Thoughtworks. I'd use the trip planner available on or google maps.
