What we're about

Ever thought about learning to code? Well this meetup is for you! This meetup is run by MakerSquare, a 3 month immersive software engineering school part of the national Reactor Core Network. Our mission is to teach a driven community of students the latest in web development skills. We're educators first and software engineers second. We employ 21st century, rapid-iteration teaching principles to teach professionals the most in-demand skills in the most effective ways possible. Events we'll host will include coding workshops in HTML, CSS, JS and Git, networking events for tech professionals in the Chicago area and community events to attract attention to the tech scene, just to name a few. Our goal is to provide the Chicago area with effective training that can support the lively tech ecosystem. Feel free to reach out if you're looking to get your hands dirty in some code!

VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE SWITCH TO OUR NEW MEETUP GROUP! We are moving from this temporary Meetup group to a permanent one. We will be shutting down this Meetup soon, so please be sure to join us at our new group: http://www.meetup.com/LearnToCodeInChicago/ Once you join, you can also RSVP for the upcoming classes directly on that group instead of having to go to a different link: • Free Intro to Coding Class (Thurs March 24, 6-9pm) (http://www.meetup.com/LearnToCodeInChicago/events/229789371/) • Free Intro to Coding Class (Sat March 26, 9:15am-12noon) (http://www.meetup.com/LearnToCodeInChicago/events/229789502/) • Free Intro to Coding Class (Sat March 26, 1-4pm) (http://www.meetup.com/LearnToCodeInChicago/events/229789548/) If none of the class times work for you, that's okay, make sure you join the group and we will keep you updated as we announce new times. Note the class name has changed slightly, but it is the same exact course. --------- Goal: Write your first lines of JavaScript code. Whether you want to build your own websites or just want to communicate better with developers, this class will get you started! You'll leave knowing: • What the JavaScript language is, why it was created and how it's used today • How JavaScript works with web browsers to create interactivity • Fundamental JavaScript: syntax, types, variables, keywords and functions Meet your instructor: Tyler Lambe was a professional developer across all platforms for over 6 years, before he made the transition into teaching full-stack web development. Having crafted full-fledged software engineers who previously had no experience, his passion lies in helping people accelerate their lives through education. Note: Students will need to bring their own laptops! Windows, Mac or Linux will do it! Our preferred web browser is Google Chrome.
