What we're about

Code Cafe is now “Coding and Tech at the Indianapolis Public Library!” You’ll continue to see Code Cafe sessions designed to engage individuals who are serious about learning to code, learning more about code, or seeking to meet fellow code enthusiasts. In addition, we are expanding this meetup page to include new technology programs at Central Library and other opportunities at our 24 branches. These expanded learning opportunities will offer individuals of all skill levels a chance to find a supportive learning environment with topics that match their interests. This meetup page will primarily feature events from the following programs:

CODE CAFE

Code Cafe provides introductory and intermediate level study groups, learning sessions, and events. Code Cafe encourages participants to collaborate with Code Cafe mentors and their peers to build a coding portfolio or pursue the free certifications and achievement milestones of the program. Code Café offers sessions on topics such as Web development (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript), Python, Physical Computing, and more! Code Café is made possible by Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.

CODING (AND TECH) ...FOR THE CURIOUS

Coding (and Tech) for the Curious is a beginner-friendly program for individuals curious about technology and coding. Adults get to experience coding and technology topics in a low-stress, approachable environment.
