What we're about

BASE is the foundational community for individuals interested in learning about and developing software in the Birmingham, AL area. We are made up of folks interested in a wide variety of technologies from Ruby, JavaScript, and Java to tools like Docker, AWS, and Terraform. BOSS welcomes anyone who is interested in the field of software and technology, regardless of gender, race, creed, ethnicity, or background. Our goal is to bring together technology enthusiasts of all types to build a stronger tech-focused community in our city.

Keebs & Coffee is a monthly mechanical keys meetup to show off and discuss all things mech keys. Bring your boards, spare keysets, and anything else you have to sell, swap, or just show off. No agenda, so swing by when you can!

Code Co-op - A free coding help & hack night

Innovation Depot

Interested in breaking out of a dead end career, shifting into a coding / tech job, improving your skillset, or just switching things up? Don't have the time or cash to get into coding / tech via a college program or bootcamp? If you said yes to any of that, then this might be the event for you. Plain and simple, Code Co-op is a help and hack night focused in on connecting people with better opportunities through collaboration and conversation. Now, this isn't a class, but it is your opportunity to talk with other people in the community and get help jumpstarting your learning process or with a programming lesson / personal project you've been working on. Come with your laptop, a notebook & pen, and/or a drive to learn! 6:00PM MEETUP LOCATION: If you enter the CoWorking Night Entrance, close to First Avenue North, instantly turn right towards the cafe, walk straight down a hallway, turn right when the hallway comes to a T, and the room (CR-B) will be on your left. To get a better idea of where we are, please check out the map image attached in the event. LATE ARRIVAL INFO: If you arrive or plan to arrive after the group leaves (6:15pm) for a group work space, please try to find one of the CoWorking Night Birmingham attendants and ask for directions to CR-B. We've attached a map to help you find our room (CR-B), but if you are unable to get assistance, send us a private message via Facebook / Twitter (links listed below). We'll get back to you as your post or message is spotted! NEED MORE INFO?
