Come join us for an informal, open programming session at a cafe in Berkeley. All programming languages and levels of experience are welcome.

Please write down or save my phone number (listed above when you are logged in), since you may need to call/text me to find the group. See below for parking information.

This meetup will be a self-directed programming session without a fixed plan or leader. Just bring whatever tutorials, books, courses, or projects that you're working on. You can meet people, find a partner for pair programming, talk about technology, find/create a study group, work on a personal or group project, or just study a book or tutorial. It's very informal.

Optional activities: if you want to work on coding puzzles, projects, and/or study groups with other attendees, let an organizer know when you arrive.

Tip: we meet twice per week in Berkeley. Check out the main calendar for a list of events, and learn more about the group at

The meetups are free to attend, but please remember to buy a drink or pastry when you arrive at the cafe so that they stay happy about our meeting there. If you're hungry, they also serve full meals in the back.

Parking Information: parking in Downtown Berkeley can sometimes be difficult, because of the construction. It's often easier to park at a nearby BART station and then take a train one stop to Downtown Berkeley. North Berkeley BART Station and Ashby BART Station are good options on Saturdays. The parking there is free on weekends, so you get all-day parking for the price of a round-trip BART ticket (less than $4). See the parking page for more information:
