What we're about

CodeHub (https://www.codehub.org.uk) is a place to code, share, and learn from one another, and make connections within the web industry. It is aimed at everybody who is interested in learning and sharing their knowledge, beginners and experienced developers alike. We are a chapter of OpenTechSchool (http://www.opentechschool.org/).

We run events (Hack nights, Dojos, workshops), organise mentorships and facilitate study groups - currently there is a Haskell group, and one for general web dev called WebDev101.

You can find more information about our various activities on the Codehub Wiki (https://wiki.codehub.org.uk/).

Get an invite to our Slack channel here http://slack.codehub.org.uk and post about ideas, find like-minded people and share news about web dev in Bristol (jobs, events etc).

Hack Night

Framework

Hack Night This is a chance for developers in Bristol to get together in an informal social setting to work on projects, learn, and share with other developers. Our Code of Conduct: http://codehub.org.uk/code-conduct Various study groups meet up at CodeHub hack nights, including: - The Haskell Study Group - Women's Tech Hub Please join the #hacknight channel on our Slack board: http://slack.codehub.org.uk --- What is a "hack night"? Hack night is a casual social coding event where people can come together to work on projects and learn new technologies in any language at any skill level. It is a good time to work on those projects on the "back burner" that you never have time for. Some people will have personal projects that they want to work on in a social atmosphere. Others may be interested in pairing up to work on a project or learn something new together, or work through some of the online coding challenges. Some people may be experts, others may be noobs, and others may just want to learn how to code - all are welcome!

WebDev101

Dom's Coffee House

About WebDev101 is a self-directed study group for everyone interested in improving their knowledge of any subject in the field of web development. As we are not instructor-led, you will only get out what you put in to this group! The goal of WebDev101 is to help each other progress in our individual and/or group goals by providing a space and time in which to meet other like-minded developes and ask questions. CodeHub encourages members that are willing to mentor beginner/less experienced developers. If you’re interested in mentoring or finding someone to mentor you on a particular topic, get in touch with Audrey, Mark or Katja on Slack (http://slack.codehub.org.uk/). What to bring Your own laptop, a beginner's mindset, complete dedication to respecting others

Python Code Dojo

Framework

What is a Code Dojo? People who train in martial arts attend dojos where they practice and try to expand their skills and achieve self-improvement. The idea is that in order to become an expert in anything you need to repeatedly perform *deliberate practice*. Dojos are also places where people of variable experience levels can engage with each other, share knowledge and give support. A Code Dojo tries to take those ideas and apply them in the process of master programming languages. Our version of the Dojo was inspired by the London Python Dojo (http://ldnpydojo.org.uk/). -- This is what a typical session could look like: - Arrive, meet and greet - Decide on a topic/"exercise" to work on: -- Suggest ideas (anyone can suggest things, it could be a game like tic-tac-toe, connect5 etc or an algorithm, or a tweet generator...) -- Vote to decide on 1 exercise to work on - Randomly split into teams of 2-4 people - Each team works together (using Python) to solve the exercise at hand - Each team presents their (complete or incomplete!) solution, talking through their creative process. The spirit of the Dojo will be: * Non-competitive, collaborative, fun environment *** WELCOMING ALL SKILL LEVELS *** * Safe to try new ideas -- IMPORTANT THINGS: - We will be using Python as our programming language. Even if you don't have much experience and only know some basics you can still participate! - To participate in the Dojo you will need to come to the venue. This is because we will need to run things at specific times and do some presentations at the end, which may make it tricky to incorporate remote people (for now!). - Please aim to arrive on time. We should be making introductions and voting on ideas in the first 30 minutes, so we will form teams and get started on the exercise by around 6.30.
