Newbies (never coded, been away from coding for > 2 years)
Welcome to the group! If you are new to programming or have had a “gap” since you last programmed, it is highly recommended that you attend at least 2 of the monthly sessions. Bring your goals and ideas and talk to everyone to share what you are expecting to do and what timeframe and level you are looking to achieve. Also, if you have any specific languages, os’s that you are interested in. Note that all are organizers are volunteers and please be appreciative of their time, efforts and mentoring abilities by either buying them a cup of coffee/dessert/whatever-they-like and supporting them through showing up for their events and contributing whatever you can. If you are unclear how you can contribute, ask the organizers and offer what your skill set is. We need all kinds of skills in this group particularly help with marketing/sales and lining up speakers for our speaker series events. If you have your own websites, please link to our site to show support.
Intermediate (coding for 3-6 years)
Welcome to the group! As intermediate we are very happy to have you join us. Since you are new to the group, please attend at least one monthly session and share what level you are at and what level you are expecting to get to and timeframe. As an intermediate coder, please consider being an organizer for one of our sessions – informal, hacking, marketing and/or speaker series. If you have your own websites, please link to our site to show support.
Advanced (coding for 7+ years)
Welcome to CodeChix! We are honored to have you in our group and are eager to help you in whatever goal you wish to achieve. We would love to see you as often as possible at whichever session you choose. Please consider being an organizer for our hacking sessions. We, also, welcome you to be part of our speaker series and would love to have you showcase your projects/talk about them. So, please don’t hesitate to contact the appropriate organizers for each session type. And, we would love to have you be a herald and public proponent of CodeChix and speak/blog/tweet on our behalf on all things code-related, if you are interested. It is a great way to get visibility and reach. If you have your own websites, please link to our site to show support.
