Onboarding Night

Curious about what Code for Chicago is and why get together? Looking for ways to contribute your time and skills to the community good? Onboarding night just might be the event for you.

This meeting serves as a sort of 101 for what Code for Chicago is all about. We'll talk through the volunteer work we do together, how the thing is structured, why it started, as well as the projects we currently have active.

If you have a project of your own feel free to pitch it!
