This is the Open Collective page of Operation Code's Washington DC chapter, which is one of approximately 19 local chapter spread throughout the United States of varying sizes. Check out this meetup page to see where we are currently active.
Compared to the Seattle Chapter, which currently has approximately 1,088 folks registered on their Meetup and they usually have 100-150 folks at their events, the Washington DC chapter is new and therefore quite a bit smaller. As of September 2018, we have 180 folks registered on Meetup.com, drawing approximately 30 folks to our launch event. We've got a lot of enthusiastic folks and a bunch of activities on the horizon, including things like supporting coffee & code events and intro to coding workshops at area military bases, so we expect our member numbers to continue to grow.
