What we're about

Have you ever thought about learning to code but weren't sure how to get started? Come meet other aspirational coders and explore the fundamentals of programming and develop an attitude that will enable us to quickly learn new technologies.

Each Meetup will be led by an expert who will guide us in a new skill or concept, and help us get started with programming,

Here are some example of topics we will cover:

• Intro to HTML and CSS

• Intro to Javascript

• Intro to Git and GitHub

• Intro to jQuery, Angular, Node.js, Express.js, Meteor, Ruby on Rails, and more!

We will also host workshops, panels, and speaking events for more intermediate and advanced coders. All levels are welcome to attend, whether you're interested in a career or pursuing code as a hobby.

This Meetup is sponsored by Galvanize (http://galvanize.com/), which offers a 6-month course in full stack web development (http://www.galvanize.com/courses/full-stack/#.VmXZut-rSRs). These events serve as primers for prospective students, and much of the topics are guided by the course's curriculum design. For all inquiries, including food and drink or other sponsorship, please reach out to Lee Ngo at lee.ngo@galvanize.com .
