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!
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.
This month will have the standard format - just turn up and do whatever interests you most.
