Details

Welcome to WWCode Tokyo Study Group series. This is a casual weekly study session event, with no speakers or instructors. In the case that we have a national holiday or no one is available to host this event, it will be cancelled in advance.

Are you interested in working on a side project away from the distractions of work? Are you interested in improving your coding skills by regular practice? Come to our weekly study group and get some focus-time for yourself.

📌 How does it work?

◆ This is a casual self-study session, there is no speaker or instructor
◆ You can come alone or with someone else you want to study/work with
◆ You can come in and leave at any time, there is no agenda
◆ It's just like a co-working space, to focus on studying or working on a side-project, but you have the chance to talk to someone else if you want
◆ We don't provide food for this event, but you can bring your own if you want
◆ Join our Slack group (#tokyo-study-group channel) to chat with other people during the study group or share links (ask for an invitation when you arrive at the event)
