Calling all women or non-binary people! This is a meet-up for beginners (those who haven't coded before or are getting started), professionals, and everyone in between. Please bring your laptop!
We ask that those who identify as male be either invited by an attendee or brings someone who is a women or non-binary! The more the merrier.
