We facilitate helpful events toward your goals with new friends and acquaintances that can also help you on your code blocker or problem. if you're learning software development, work as a software developer, or just enjoy typing code into IDEs. You belong!
We're a community of non-traditional Software Engineers, Data Scientists, PMs, college dropouts, and career-switchers. Our goal is to be the premiere meetup for Software Engineers and any code hobbyists. Our typical events have self-taught hackers, current/ex FANG engineers, uni students, startup devs, fintech, bootcamp grads, and non-traditional tech folk of all ages, A-Z.Expect to meet new people, offline job referrals, people hacking on cool side projects, and to oblige by the Code of Conduct.
We're the #1 meetup in the tech/software/web categories on Meetup and actively persevere throughout the pandemic.Our product is a Software Engineering community that assembles in-person 2x a month and communicates digitally over Discord.
We have a written Code of Contact publicly available at the top of this page and abide by it. Organizers and volunteers take serious measures to ensure a safe environment that takes no outsiders, solicitors, or third-party recruiters.
We aim for an event every 2 weeks, we use qualitative and quantitative data to drive processes and iteratively improve every event to ensure an event happens every two weeks without a decline in quality.
All you need to bring is a laptop. We are VERY newbie-friendly, social, and look forward to developers interested in meeting more developers. We provide a cozy seat, wifi, and cool people to meet! In the future we plan on hosting: job fairs, HHs, and hackathons.
At 5:00 pm, we form a circle to: state our names, mention programming languages/frameworks you can help with, and what you need help on. Immediately after we have an optional circle for jobs hiring or people looking for a job
Break, grab some coffee, help a fellow coder with a side project, or ask about that new JS library she just mentioned. It's all up to you! Code & Coffee partners with organizers that empower our community. Our organizers actively reflect on learnings from DC Code & Coffee
