Elena Moiseeva, founder of the Girl Develop It Buffalo chapter, addresses the crowd.

The party featured short talks and presentations on a variety of topics from how to get media coverage to learning a new programming language.

The group is dedicated to providing affordable and accessible programs to women (and men!) who want to learn software development through mentorship and hands-on instructed classes. The cost for classes varies, but the MeetUp Group and events like Code and Coffee Night are free to join and attend.

The next Code and Coffee is at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 19 at dig, 640 Ellicott St. in Buffalo.
