I’m not sure how I ran across Code Connective on Slack, it may have been on Reddit’s /r/learnprogramming. This group provides a mechanism for newbies, such as yours truly, to find others of like mind for meet ups.
Many thanks to Code Connective for this and the other resources on their website . With the intent to help folks who can’t afford, or aren’t ready, for a coding school or boot camp, they are trying to help folks link up with free or low cost learning experiences.
Now to just find a group near me and muster up the courage to attend a coding event.
