Join us for our monthly Code & Coffee Study Group! Whether you're looking to keep practicing what you learned in your last class or are in the midst of ANY kind of project - whether it's coding, design, working on resumes, or anything else - your community is here to help. Many people who attend are brand new to technology, so don't be shy!
Have a project idea and some skills, but haven’t attended a GDI event yet? Want to focus on helping others with their projects? You're welcome too!
This will be an informal event where members can meet each other and collaborate. Feel free to bring drinks, food or anything else you might like. You can use the coffee machine at Elsevier, but please bring a mug or other vessel of your choice.
Bring a laptop and something to work on. It's okay if you don't have a project! Here are some sites that you can practice with:
PairUpToCode Exercises (http://www.pairuptocode.com/)
Code Academy (http://www.codecademy.com/)
Khan Academy (JS) (https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/cs/programming)
Code School (https://www.codeschool.com/)
JS Assessment (https://github.com/rmurphey/js-assessment)
Feel free to come by for the whole thing or drop in when you have time.
A note to TAs: If you are interested in helping out with this event or a future study group, please let us know!

All attendees are expected to abide by the Girl Develop It Code of Conduct (http://www.girldevelopit.com/codeofconduct).
The building is located at the corner of JFK and 16th. The front of the building is on JFK but you actually want to go to the back of the building, which is in a little courtyard (Bank of America is on the corner). You'll see a big foyer all lit up and probably some orchids in the window.
Someone will be there to let you in before 6:45pm, but if you come after that...there are four doors - you want the regular door (not the revolving one, it won't work) furthest to the right. When you arrive, if no one is at the door, press the buzzer and tell the security guard that you are here for the event at Elsevier. (Elsevier is pronounced Ell-severe, just in case). They will ask you for your ID, have you sign in, and then will send you to the 18th floor. We'll take it from there! If you have any trouble, please feel free to contact me (Meghan!) at[masked]-5168.
