Details

Note before RSVPing: This event is intended to be exclusively open for women; we are trans* friendly. For those who are new to coding, but do not identify as a woman, check out CodeNewbies DC! https://www.meetup.com/CodeNewbie-DC/

Learning to code for the first time with us! We will be going over our First Timer's Guide (https://github.com/womenwhocodedc/front-end-community/blob/master/first-timers-guides/first_timers_guide.md) in a casual workshop setting. We offer both a first timer's HTML & CSS guide (https://github.com/womenwhocodedc/front-end-community/blob/master/first-timers-guides/first_timers_guide.md) as well as a first timer's JavaScript guide (https://github.com/womenwhocodedc/front-end-community/blob/master/first-timers-guides/first_timers_javascript_guide.md).

Front End Lab (FEL) is a study group where women can come together and help each other learn and understand web development. We welcome devs of all levels and encourage those with more experience to help out those that are just starting. There's always at least one mentor or leader present to help you with best practices or to guide you through if you are stuck with a nasty problem!

Laptop Policy

In order to maximize your benefits from FEL, please bring your laptop. Extra computers will not be available at the event. Even if you have never coded before, you will be coding at FEL!
