Sunday: Drink Coffee and Write Code

COFFEE & CODE!!!!

COFFEE & CODE!!!!

Sunday! Sunday!! Sunday!!!

Veterans of the group know what's-what. However, if you're new, follow these simple rules:

1) Show up at ANY time between 12:30 PM and 5:30 PM and for ANY length of time.

No pressure to have to arrive at a specific time or stay until the end.  If you're a keener, you can even show up earlier and stay later; it's totally up to you!

2) Bring a project!

It can be a game, a website, or a learning resource you're using to learn how to code.  All levels of expertise are welcome and I strongly encourage you to ask questions, exchange ideas, debate coding practices, or whatever tickles your fancy.  Come ready to chat or come with headphones so you can concentrate 😉

3) Keep it casual.

We're meeting up so can meet fellow coders and have fun coding in a group (because, let's face it, coding by yourself isn't always fun).

Hope to see you all there! Happy Coding 🙂
