That's just the impostor syndrome talking. You'll be in a supportive environment with lots of beginners like you.
Hear Me Code is in Washington DC but doesn't have a fixed location -- classes are held wherever I can get the space donated. Be sure to watch the listserv for class announcements.
Classes are held once per month on the weekends. Be sure to watch the listserv for class announcements and check the calendar.
Nothing -- the classes are free.
Bring your laptop (charged), charger, and snacks! We don't want you going hungry during class.
Women (cis and trans), non-binary people, and trans men.
Hear Me Code was founded with the intention of carving out a space for women, but many of our members have since come out as non-binary and we want them to feel welcome in the community they have called home for years.
I don't expect that all trans men will feel at home in Hear Me Code given our founding intention of carving out a space for women, but many will, and I'd like to welcome them to our community.
Hear Me Code was created to help address the gender gap in tech and provide a supportive environment where women can thrive.
There are lots of great groups that cis men can join too, and you'll often see Hear Me Coders there.
Hear Me Code focuses on Python. At the end of three lessons, you'll have a solid foundation and will be ready to start working on practical projects.
