• Hack Night + Haskell Study Group
    Hack Night Feel free to attend in person or virtually on our Slack channel (http://slack.codehub.org.uk) - if you're attending virtually please don't sign up on Meetup. 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 --- 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!

  • Getting into Test Driven Development - Part 1 : TDD workflow
    Workshop with Stephen Leach - This workshop gets developers into the test-driven mindset and having fun learning how to drive development by implementing step-by-step scenarios using a structured set of activities. To explore what this means in practice, there will be hands-on exercises, so bring your laptop. The exercises can be done using a platform of your choice. However, Steve would like to focus on a language prevelant among attendees when talking about the examples, therefore we will ask you about your preferred language on sign-up. Who is this workshop for? This workshop is for you if you have heard about TDD and want to really understand what the deal is, without making the huge investment in time needed to be an expert. It is about understanding the whole TDD picture and not worry about the mechanics. All skill levels welcome. We are also looking for mentors.

  • Python Code Dojo
    -- Python Dojo Nr. 4. Please note new location! Framework Co-working space on King Street -- 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. As with the rest of the hack-night, 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.

    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 developers, ask questions and potentially find a mentor - or be one. Come with a goal in mind We encourage group members to come prepared with one or several learning goals that you feel are achievable over the 20-week period we will be meeting. That way you can measure your progress, no matter how big or small, and be accountable to yourself each Meetup. Some example goals are: - Learn how the web works & explain it to a friend - Learn how to use Chrome Dev Tools - Set up Sass in a project and incorporate use of nesting, mixins, extend/inheritance - Complete a freeCodeCamp module - Learn what JS promises are and how they are used - Create a JS calculator - Set up a project with Laravel - Use Git on a team project (and how/why version control is important) The sky is the limit with goals, but the more specific they are, the more likely you are to achieve them! Teaching is learning - Volunteer to give a presentation Teaching others what you’ve learned is the quickest way to true mastery of a subject. WebDev101 encourages group members to volunteer to give a brief presentation at least once over the 10-Meetup session on a topic or goal they’ve mastered. The presentation should be short (maximum 10 minutes). Providing a brief exercise for the group to practice what you’ve taught them after your presentation is highly recommended, but not compulsory! Contact Audrey on the CodeHub Slack (http://slack.codehub.org.uk/) #webdev101 channel if you'd like to challenge yourself and sign up to give a presentation. Mentor CodeHub encourages members that are willing to mentor beginner/less experienced developers. We aim to help match you with a CodeHub mentor that has the knowledge and experience that you are working towards. Some mentors will be able to attend the WebDev101 group, while other mentors may only be available on hack nights.
