What we're about

We're here to learn about programming and computer science in a fun, informal environment -- and also to provide moral support to fight the fears and frustrations that come with learning a new skill or transitioning to a new career.

Stuff we do at Learn to Code LA:

• Learn programming fundamentals through a variety of languages and platforms together in small groups or pair programming -- everything from short tutorials to day-long hackathons/learnathons!
• Workshops -- build something tangible and learn new skills in our structured group classes!

• Co-working and casual learning -- work on your own projects independently while enjoying the company of like-minded people.
• Discussion groups, especially for language-agnostic topics. (Maybe even a book club?)
• Project show-and-tell -- get feedback, generate ideas, or just show off your mad skillz!
• And other random, fun activities like geeky movie nights and joint events with other meetups!

Needs a location

Join us for the RETURN OF IN PERSON meetups; for info on how to join the video chat, join our Slack and introduce yourself in our #DTLA channel!

Masks are REQUIRED single or doubled jabbed, or not jabbed at all. IDGAF what the CDC says or the locational policy on the matter is a policy of this meetup. Cover your breathing holes or stay home (Thanks!).

Per usual I'm 99% sure street parking is free on Sundays around the mall, but I also don't drive, so I don't know.

Join our weekly Sunday meetup to work on projects, learn and socialize together! There are no formal lesson plans or teachers, but we're all here to help one another. Beginners are always welcome!
