Hi everyone, I have a great discount for women who wants to join my 'code school team' to learn how to code. I wish it could be free ... I will work on getting more sponsors.
This is for women at all skill levels so please share this. Furthermore, I have learned to code from different sources; I took courses and I learned online. If you want insight on a path good for you and your time, just ask me. I used to be a teacher so I am good at identifying and creating individual plans.
Most people believe that black technologists are rare. I chose to believe otherwise.
Why we exist: This meetup exists because I was damn tired of being the only black person at other tech meetups. I knew I couldn't be the only computer nerd of color in New York, so I started this group to find others like me.
Here's what you need to know: We aim to be a network of developers in NYC interested in becoming better, learning from each other and networking. We mix hardcore computer science with start-up culture, to create an environment of learning.
Developers of all skill levels are welcome, from experienced hardcore, neckbearded hackers, to n00bs. If you want to be awesome, I hope you can find yourself at home here. Other awesome meetups:
Blacks in Tech run by the very awesome Mike Street. Mike has grown an awesome network for the business side of tech start-ups and social media. We focus more on programming and technical skills. I attend it.
Hack and Tell: Simply put, a meetup for crazy hacks. This is my second favorite group (after the Black Techies, of course).
