NOTE: This event takes place at CRASHSPACE in Culver City!

Interested in learning to code or improving your skills? Join this group, led by our very own Director and professional Software Engineer Michelle Leonhart (@at0mbxmb) every week!

Skill range: All. Total n00bs to professional developers.
Access: Open to the Public. RSVP is not required, but definitely helps us know how many people to plan for. Space is limited, so arrive on time to guarantee yourself a seat!

Structure: There is no formal instruction. Once a week we will meet up to work on our projects and help each other out along the way. If you're new, this is a great place to come and get direction and advice from more experienced developers. If you're experienced, let's make some crazy **** together!

While we're here, Crashspace is OPEN, meaning members may come work on their own projects for their own purposes at the same time.

About the Venue: Crash Space is a hackerspace in Los Angeles, and is part of the growing global hackerspace movement ( We are a collection of hackers, programmers, builders, makers, artists and people who generally like to break things and see what new things we can build with the pieces. We meet regularly at our physical location in Culver City.

Crash Space is generally open to members only, but we also do regularly scheduled classes ( and other events. Our Public Discussion List ( is open to anyone and we invite you to join and say Hi. If you’d like to visit Crash Space we have an open house on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.
