BuzzFeed will be hosting our July mentorship night at their awesome office in Hollywood!

==================
- (Optional) Your laptop, if you want to get some hands-on coding help!

- You’ll get the most out of this event if you come prepared with questions to ask!
(Anything from career advice, code-specific questions, comparing tools/technologies/languages, advice on learning to code, etc.)
