The Los Angeles tech scene is rapidly growing with a combination of great coding meetups teaching people how to code and startups that are looking to hire new junior devs. While there are plenty of startups in the LA area, some notable ones that you may have heard of include Tinder, Dollar Shave Club, Wag, and Soylent, and they are all hiring! If you are looking to get a new career in programming, I highly recommended attending some of these LA meetups where you can learn to code for free and meet other like-minded programmers.

Love a LA coding meetup that isn’t listed here? Let me know so I can add them! I currently help run the Thinkful LA weekly workshops both in Santa Monica as well as DTLA. RSVP to our next event. Also feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions at and happy coding.
