So You Want To Be A Wizard | Free Code Camp Norfolk

We had a fantastic turn out last night at the Meetup and it was great to meet so many new faces. Next month we'll have more of a quick lightning talk, and will be coding as a group through a couple of algorithms. It will be a great learning experience. Thanks again to the awesome Frances Coronel for speaking last night.
