What we're about

Want to learn to code but don’t know where to start? This meetup was created to help people in Austin learn to code and gain new skills in web development and data science. Join us weekdays at 6:30 pm for free workshops, info sessions, tech talks, and happy hours focused on building new skills and growing your career. Our events are well-suited for both beginners learning to code as well as intermediate developers or data scientists looking to level-up. We're proud to be sponsored by Thinkful Austin (https://www.thinkful.com/), the #1 rated coding bootcamp on CourseReport, who contributes a team of experienced mentors and career coaches to help out at events.

Workshops: hands-on, group classes teach everything from full-stack web development to intro concepts in data science. The workshops are taught by Thinkful mentors, each of whom have years of experience teaching people to code.

Tech Talks: led by experts in their field, these are meant to dive deeper into a specific topic. For example, you'll learn about how to build a great portfolio, how to break into the {{CITY}} tech scene, and how to market yourself.

Happy Hours: is there a better way to talk about all things Austin tech than over drinks and snacks? Come joins at one of our Austin locations to network, learn, and most importantly have fun.

Info sessions: If you’re interested in learning more about Thinkful’s specific courses, these are the events for you! You’ll learn more about the mentorship program, career services, curriculum, and how job placement works.
