Code Self Study

We're a friendly programming community made up of over 4,000 programmers in Berkeley and the San Francisco Bay Area. All programming languages and levels of experience are welcome!

Berkeley Events Programming Tutorials Educational Center

There are many great tech events happening in San Francisco and Oakland, but not enough towards Berkeley and El Cerrito, so this group currently focuses on those areas. Also, while some groups focus on specific language or types of programming, we're open to all kinds of programming, not just web development.

How We Are Different

There are dozens of local meetup groups that teach people how to code. Here are some ways that we are different from most other groups:

Some of the languages our members have been working with are: Python, JavaScript, Rust, Java, Scheme, Racket, Haskell, Clojure, Common Lisp, C, C++, C#, F#, Lua, Elixir, Erlang, Elm, Purescript, Ruby, Scala, PHP, Go, R, HTML/CSS, Octave, SQL and more. We're open to anything that is computer-related.

Programming Bootcamp Alternative

You can attend our meetings as a self-directed, coding bootcamp alternative. Experienced programmers in the group can offer mentorship on a project-based approach to learning. This community is self-directed -- if you would like assistance with forming a study plan, let us know in the forum, chatroom, and/or at the meetups.
