What we're about

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BzmDP_yCEAAvXdx.png

This is a group for programmers who wish to deepen their knowledge of programming. We're looking to dig in depth into the classic books of our field, such as Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (SICP), Compilers: Principles, Techniques, and Tools (The dragon book), Lisp In Small Pieces, The Elements of Computing Systems (TECS) or Purely Functional Data Structures. And fundamental topics to the craft of programming, such as Compilers, Algorithms, Datastructures or Programming languages.

We meet regularly to study together and help each other understand programming in a relaxed atmosphere. We run series on given topics, usually following the chapters of a book.

We welcome all members who wish to learn more about the craft of programming, irrespective of their background, whether novice or experts.

We look forward to meeting you at the next study session :)

Recruiter policy

Recruiters beware! Using this group as a forum for recruitment will not be tolerated as it puts our sponsorship and the quality of our events at risk. This group is for programmers to practice their craft. Off topic posts or messages will be blocked and members may be removed for repeated violation.

You are welcome to any of our event, but only to learn.

If your company instead wishes to engage with members in a meaningful way, we would be happy to discuss possible sponsorships. Send a meetup message to the organisers to discuss this further.

Virtual Coding & Brunch

Link visible for attendees

A return of the CPSG Saturday morning coding & brunch sessions, now online rather than in real life due to Covid (brunch entirely optional - you'll have to cook it yourself!).

Historically, these sessions started with many of working through SICP (https://mitpress.mit.edu/sites/default/files/sicp/index.html) - and if you're stuck for ideas, that comes highly recommended - but they've now opened up to a more open format. Work on whatever you'd like - e.g. a side project, programming book you're working through etc. with other programmers around to talk through ideas with.

The meetup is held on https://gather.town/ so that it's easy to "sit next to" the people you're working with if pairing, and only hear conversation of those at the same table as you. If you've not used it before, you might want to take a quick looks at the docs before your first meetup: https://support.gather.town/help/getting-started - the key thing is to know that you can only hear/see people when standing next to them (audio will fade out as you walk away from them, like real life).
