We welcome anyone interested, no matter the skill or experience level. If you have a love and passion for front end web design and development or even if you'd just like to come hang out with other devs, we would love to meet you. #CodePenTEN50

Who is this Meetup for?

For like-minded <code> people to hang out, do show-and-tell, and bask in the lovely culture that is front end.

How can you contribute?

  • Show us your latest Pens
  • Show us some cool Pens you've found
  • Share with us how you are using CodePen for private or job related projects
  • Need some help? Demonstrate with a Pen what's bugging you and we as a community will help you with the issue.

What is "CodePen"?

CodePen is a playground for the front end side of the web. It's all about inspiration, education, and sharing.

Need to build a reduced test case to demonstrate and figure out a bug? CodePen is great for that. Want to show off your latest creation and get feedback from your peers? CodePen is great for that. Want to find examples of a particular design pattern for your project? CodePen is great for that.
