What we're about

Want to learn to code but don’t know where to start? This meetup was created to help people in Denver 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.
