A Coding Community of Practice

I need a little help!  Do you speak ...

What is Code Café?

Code Café is a community of practice for people who come together in one space to work on their own computer-based projects, supporting and teaching each other as needed. Some code their own solutions in programming languages such as Python or Javascript. Others don't write code at all, using the tools or platforms provided by companies such as Google and Microsoft to develop their solutions.

Whether brand new or experienced, Code Café is a welcome space for folks using computers to do interesting and useful things!

  •   Open to affiliated Notre Dame and Saint Mary's patrons
  •   Faculty, staff, and students are welcome
  •   No experience necessary
  •   No sign up necessary

Free coffee and cookies are a perk.

Is Code Café for me?

Do you have a project in which you're making or using software to make computers do interesting and useful things? Do you find it helpful to work in a supportive environment, where you can share and grow your knowledge? If so, please join us! All skill levels are welcome.
