Intro to JavaScript: Build a Guessing Game
*** Please RSVP on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/intro-to-javascript-build-a-guessing-game-tickets-51378598772?aff=Meetup *** "Looking for a fun way to start learning how to code? Join us as we teach you how to build a simple guessing game while learning the fundamentals of JavaScript. With each new programming concept you learn, you will add new features to the game - including keeping track of how many guesses you've had and starting a new game from scratch. See an example before you come: this guessing game was made by an attendee at one of the last events! Bring a laptop, and if you don't have one we'll match you up with someone who does. How to find us: 384 Northyards Boulevard Northwest, Building 100, Atlanta, GA 30313 Enter the office park on Northyards Blvd and follow Northyards Blvd until to get to the office park. Free parking is available outside the Gathering Spot. Once you arrive, make sure and check-in at the front desk."

What we're about

Want to learn to code but don’t know where to start? This meetup was created to help people in Atlanta 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 Atlanta (https://www.thinkful.com/bootcamp/atlanta/?aff=meetup), 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 has 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 Atlanta tech scene, and how to market yourself.

Happy Hours: is there better way to talk about all things Atlanta tech than over drinks and snacks? Come joins at one of our Atlanta 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.
