Join other GDI students who are learning User Experience and UI Design. All levels are welcome, so whether you're just getting started with your first UX class or whether you've got the basics down and are moving into intermediate or advanced territory, you're welcome to attend! Beginners are especially encouraged to attend and participate in study groups - it will really help you to grasp new concepts and push your skills to the next level.

GDI Study Groups are relaxed and informal, and are intended as a way for our community to work and play together while providing each other with ongoing support and feedback. Hang out with like-minded students for an evening. This is not a hackathon or an advanced meetup - this is a relaxed place for all of our students to spend time coding together. We're very friendly and would love to have you join us!

Whether you're looking to keep practicing what you learned in your last class or are in the midst of a project, our community is here to help! As a group, we'll hold each other accountable for completing our projects and lessons, and provide ongoing support to one another as we learn and grow as coders.

What to bring

Please bring a laptop and charger, though power outlets might be at a premium so try to have a full battery. Tucking a power strip in your bag is a great idea - make the most of the outlets that *are* available!

Also, bring questions, ideas, the projects you're working on, project ideas you'd like to tackle, a lesson or homework assignment you're stuck on, an exercise you'd like to try out, anything!


There is limited parking available in the back. There is also street metered parking on Wilshire and nearby streets.


We're here to help! If you have any questions or anything you'd like to discuss before signing up for class, please contact us at losangeles [at] girldevelopit dot com.

Want a study group in your neighborhood?

We're looking to get study groups going all over LA so everyone gets a chance to attend and participate without having to fight traffic. Get in touch ( if you'd like a study group running near you!
