What do you hope to get out of the group?

I hope to meet some cool new people, become better at programming, build something cool and maybe even find a co-founder for start a startup in the process. :)

What experience level do you have with coding?

I just completed an intro course on Ruby on Rails and am looking to expand upon what I learned in class and build some cool stuff. Right now I'm learning more about Rails while also picking up some front-end stuff (HTML, CSS, Javascript). I find it easier to stay motived when working with a group and created this meetup to meet and work with other people that are interested in learning how to code.

Tell us one fun and interesting fact about yourself!

I'm a loyal Knicks fan and am happy that we are finally winning again.

Introduction

I'm a native New Yorker, former finance guy turned creative professional turned hacker. I started this group to meet cool people that I could learn how to code with. Now that I've learned how to code I like to teach others how to do the same.
