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.

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

Online event

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 a notebook & pen and a drive to learn!
