"Operation Code: Hampton Roads
Operation Code is an initiative to introduce veterans to the software development community. Our organization has goals geared towards helping veterans transition into software development careers, but the meetup is open to the public. You are welcome to attend and participate whether you in the military community or not!
No experience is necessary to join. In fact, we encourage those who want to learn how to code to join. If you are a developer and would like to provide mentorship, we would greatly appreciate your participation, as well. You can sign up to be a mentor at the Operation Code website."
