Web Developers Ireland is a community whose main goal is to gather anyone interested in learning and teaching to code websites, whether as a career or as a hobby, in a friendly environment where no one feels shy about asking any question. The purpose is to make coding a social and collaborative affair to accelerate your skills. All genders, backgrounds, and experience levels are welcome. Wether you learn coding through university, private school or self-study (i.e., Teamtreehouse, Codeschool, etc), you are most welcome.
We have two sessions per month: - one session with presentations made by members of all levels - one session with 100% of practice (coding exercises, challenges, projects on Github)
