What we're about


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.

Coding & Brunch 💻🥐


The CPSG Saturday morning Code & Brunch is back in real life and back in its spiritual home, Thrive Café (formerly CB2).

Whether you are a complete novice or a programming master there is always more to learn. With Code & Brunch you can read that great programming book, work on that revolutionary project, or learn that cool new language with good food, a drink and fellow programmers to talk through ideas.

Just bring a book or a laptop.

If you're stuck for ideas, a couple of our favourite books are
- SICP: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Structure_and_Interpretation_of_Computer_Programs
- Nand2Tetris: https://www.nand2tetris.org

We're usually upstairs.
