What does non-binary mean? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genderqueer)

This meetup is to encourage women and non-binary people who want to learn how to code, are learning how to code, or already working to come out to our meetups, meet each other, and form a community.

This event will happen before the regular "Tokyo Developers Meetup" event (https://www.meetup.com/devjapan/events/). Feel free to stay for that as well.
