Summer is here, and for some people, that means going away and spending time doing things that are even more fun than coding (hard to believe, we know!). The result is that attendance in July and August is usually lower than average. Please be understanding if there are no mentors/experts in your area of interest present this time around.
However many people attend, we hope it will be a fun and useful time for all!
CodeUp Sheffield is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we get together to learn from each other, sharpen our skills and enjoy being in a space where everyone is immersed in code!
There are many resources out there that help you to teach yourself to code, but sometimes there is no substitute for the insight and guidance that another person can give. Our group consists of coders with a wide range of experience, and our aim is to facilitate mentoring between more experienced and less experienced coders.
All you have to bring is a laptop and some coding to get on with, such as a project, a book, or some online tutorials. If you are starting completely from scratch, we will try to guide you towards some learning resources. Please try to install any relevant software in advance, but if you need assistance with this, we are happy to help.
Please RSVP as soon as possible. If you are subsequently unable to come, please change your RSVP so that someone else can have your place. Also remember to register with your full name (as opposed to your nickname in Meetup) so that reception can check you in!
If you can't wait until the event to start sharing interesting coding stuff and learning from each other, you can join our Slack workspace at the below link! We now have a -intros channel where you can introduce yourself, if you wish. We are always happy to be able to welcome new coders to the group!
Many thanks to Sheffield Technology Parks for providing the venue (all they ask is that you leave them a review on Google Maps).

About CodeUp Sheffield
CodeUp is an open, friendly and supportive learning environment where any adult can learn digital skills for zero financial cost, and supported by volunteer mentors. Once a month we intend to provide a workspace for people with little to no programming skills to come and learn the basics, usually run as a drop in session. Our sessions will be suitable for absolute beginners, people with basic skills who need support to develop them, and even for people with intermediate or advanced skills who just want to come along to a space where everyone is immersed in code!
