What we're about

Due to Covid-19, we are unable to host any in-person info sessions, events, or workshops for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, our remote team is working hard to provide quality content online. Please check out this link for any upcoming remote opportunities: https://www.galvanize.com/events

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, including how to write code as well as how to 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, whether as a career or as a hobby.

Here are some example workshops:

• JavaScript 101

• JavaScript: Functions & Scopes

• JavaScript Fundamentals: Mini bootcamp 1 & 2

We will also host some intermediate to advanced workshops. All levels are welcome to attend :)

[WEBINAR] Intro to Computer Science

Online event

PLEASE RSVP THROUGH THE EVENTBRITE FOR THE WEBINAR LINK: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/webinar-intro-to-computer-science-tickets-103751936836 Join us to learn about introductory CS concepts in a friendly and interactive learning environment. We'll be learning about CS through the lens of JavaScript, so you should come with some experience writing JavaScript code. Topics covered: What data structures are and why are they important How memory is allocated and managed in JavaScript How to measure the efficiency of code (using Big O Notation) and how your code structure can affect the efficiency Who this workshop is for: This workshop is for learners with some programming experience, preferably with JavaScript. You should understand JavaScript syntax and fundamental concepts like arrays, objects, loops, and functions. If you are earlier along in your learning journey, you should look for other introductory-level workshops (https://www.hackreactor.com/events) that are better suited for your skillset and study progress. Tech requirements: This Webinar is held online through video conference. Students will need to have their laptops. Windows, Mac or Linux will do it! Have the Zoom Client for Video Meetings installed well before the webinar begins. Taught live online: 2 Hours – 5:30pm - 8:30pm Pacific Time / 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm Central Time Link to join the workshop will be provided to you once you RSVP.
