Hack Night

TechNexus

About the Meetup: This weekly event gives ladies a space to code together. Whether you're just getting started, or are a veteran in the tech world, there's a seat for you at the table. BYOL: Bring your own laptop! You don't have to be working on any project or learning anything new to come to Hack Night, it's a great space to just hang out with other women who code. If you ARE looking to learn a certain language, let us know, and we'll pair you up with a study buddy. More often than not there is another CWDevs member who is working to deepen her knowledge and understanding too, and would welcome a partner in learning. About Us: Our goal is to create a safe space for those in and interested in computer programming to socialize with and support one another in wherever it is their affinity for programming takes them. Space for hack night is generously provided by Civis Analytics. Thanks, Civis!
