Code & Coffee
Do you like coding with friends? Like really great coffee? Come out to GDI's Code & Coffee! Code and Coffee is an opportunity for you to work on your own projects, continue practicing what you've been learning, and meet others who share your interests. Bring your laptop, your recent projects, and your programming problems and questions. This is also a great event for first time attendees who just want to socialize or find out more about coding in general. We're very friendly and would love to have you join us. :) If you have a project idea and some skills, but haven’t attended a GDI event yet? Want to focus on helping others with their projects? You're welcome too! Don't worry if you don't have a project already started. This could be an opportunity to find one. As a group, we’ll hold each other accountable for completing our projects, and provide on-going support and feedback. We know that it can be intimidating to come to a meet-up when you don't know anyone, so please feel free to reach out if you have any questions! : ) Feel free to come by for the whole thing or drop in when you have time. Don't forget to bring your laptop and charger if you have one! All attendees are expected to abide by the Girl Develop It code of conduct (https://www.girldevelopit.com/code-of-conduct).

What we're about

Want to learn how to code? Have a great idea? Don't be shy, develop it!

Girl Develop It is a women's empowerment organization that focuses on getting more women into the tech sector. However, we also welcome people of all genders and identities to attend our events and classes who want to support our cause.

It can be intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today's budding developer community is up to 91% male. There isn't a comfortable place where women can learn at their own pace and not be afraid to ask "stupid questions."

We decided it was time to provide a place where all questions are OK and everyone can learn in a supportive environment. Our courses focus on coding, leveraging existing technology, and having something to show for it (aka building sweet websites).

We are committed to making sure members of all races, education levels, income and upbringing can build confidence in their skill set to develop web and mobile apps. Our goal is to provide hands-on instruction to those seeking professional help in software development and create basic to advanced web and mobile apps.

Stay tuned to our Meetup calendar for all of our upcoming classes, social events and study group sessions!

Please note, all our courses and events are for adults (18+).
