How did you hear about us?

I am part of a few other Tech meetup groups primarily focused around User Experience. I love championing Women in Tech and originally saw this group long ago. I definitely wanted to be part of this group but was a bit intimidated because I do not regularly code and would consider myself a beginner at best. I wasn't sure if I was qualified to be part of this group, however working within an Agile/Scrum environment para programming and collaborating w developers for over 3 years now... whether I am a coding novice or not, I wanted to finally dive in and check it out!

What would you like to get out of the group?

I would love to collaborate with and meet other women in tech out there in Chicago and learn some basic coding skills. Coding does fascinate me however I have not perpetually put in the effort to learn it and instead put majority of my efforts into the UX, design, research and prototyping side. I have done some online tutorials and have been wanting to explore Code Academy more but for now I would say I have just basic knowledge of HTML & CSS. Looking to expand this!
