Code & Coffee

  • Aug 7, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • 8th Light, Inc.

We're all learning to code, whether you've just decided to get started or you've been at it for years. Come hang out for a couple of hours on the first Thursday of each month with some friendly fellow coders.

All languages and skill levels welcome. Bring a project you're working on or jump in on some pair exercises. Will you learn something new this week or be the one teaching? Probably both! Bring your own laptop and find out.

Thanks to our host, 8th Light, for sharing their space, their beverages and light snacks with us. If you haven't heard of them, they craft software, from web applications to robotic, that is beautiful, durable, and shows pride in workmanship.

Parking and Transit Situation: Walk to Union, Metro, and purple/orange/blue/brown CTA trains. There are nearby Divvy stations as well. Public parking lot is located at 525 s Wells -  2 minute walk, $8 for evening parking rates.

All attendees are expected to abide by the Girl Develop It Code of Conduct.

    If anyone else is coming and can't get into the building just post here, and I'll come let you in! :)

    I've been buzzing the door but nothing is happening. Can I be let up? Thanks!

    • Ellie D.

      I'll be there in about 10 minutes and will need to be let in as well.

    Hey! I thought I was further down on the waitlist than I apparently was, so am not at the event. Ill keep in mind next time that the waitlist moves fast! If anyone is waitlisted and close enough to still make it, please take my space.

    Buzzer not working. Please open the door.

    I love GDI meet ups, but unfortunately I won't have the time to attend tonight. On the plus side for those waiting, a spot is now available!

    Something came up, so my spot is open if anyone wants it.

    August 7, 2014

  • Michael H.

    I am not able to make tomorrow's meetup, so there is another open spot for someone.

    August 6, 2014

  • Kathryn E.

    Hi ladies! If your RSVP is currently yes and you will no longer be able to attend, please change your RSVP to no to give your spot to someone on the waitlist.

    If anyone can't make Thursday code and coffee let me know I'm on the waitlist and in desperate need of some JavaScript /CSS guidance
    Thank you

    • Crystal C.

      Rosalia - I can't make this Thursday now so my changed response should open a slot.

    • Rosalia M.

      Thanks again!

    I've been to a few JavaScript Study Groups with Girl Develop It. I figure it's polite that I ask if I can go to this. May I go to this even though I'm a guy?

    1 · July 16, 2014

    • Kathryn E.

      Yes Michael! All are welcome at GDI Chicago events. We just ask that everyone abides by our code of conduct. Cheers!
