WWCode is an inclusive community. Anyone in support of our mission is welcome at our events. Our Code of Conduct (https://github.com/WomenWhoCode/guidelines-resources/blob/master/code_of_conduct.md) is in effect at all of our events. If you have any questions, please message the Directors of this chapter.

DESCRIPTION: Laptops NOT required!

This monthly meetup covers algorithms. We'll split attendees into two main groups:

Whiteboarding skills: You'll solve algorithms in small groups, breaking off into your preferred programming language & working together to find a solution. Problems are provided & vary in difficulty; check out the Github for examples of past problems: https://github.com/WomenWhoCodeNYC/Algorithms

For beginners: We have a dedicated group for beginners to learn about the basics of programming & algorithmic problem-solving. If you have some experience programming, we suggest you go ahead & try solving problems in the larger group, but all are welcome!
