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, 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 :)
