What is Code Café?

Code Café is a community of practice — a group of people who come together in one space to work on their own projects. In this case, it means working in a common space with other coders, whether brand new or experienced, who support and teach each other as needed.

Free coffee and cookies are a perk.

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