What we're about

Have you ever thought about learning to code but weren't sure how to get started? Let's meet and explore the fundamentals of programming and how to write code. Together we can develop an attitude that will enable us to quickly learn new technologies.

Each meetup will be led by an expert who will guide us in a new skill or concept, and help us get started with programming. All skill levels are welcome to attend, whether you're interested for career goals or pursuing code as a hobby.

Here are some example workshops:

• JavaScript 101
• JavaScript Functions & Scopes
• JavaScript Intro to Computer Science

Other events hosted will include speakers and discussions connected to starting and growing a career in tech. We seek to provide effective training that grows and supports a lively tech ecosystem.

Galvanize offers the nationally recognized Hack Reactor software engineering bootcamp throughout the year. If you want to know what taking next steps would look like, check it out!
