What we're about

CodeUp is a learner led monthly meetup for adults learning how to code. You tell us what you need support with, and we will do our best to help. With professional developers on hand to help, don't struggle alone, let us help you develop your skills, for free!

Our passion is learning. as we reach adulthood, attending a learning environment so often comes at a cost. any cost is a barrier. We believe in providing the opportunity for adults to learn how to create great digital experiences; whether that’s writing an app for a smartphone or creating a website for fun.

Most importantly, we provide that opportunity without the barriers; We don’t sell you anything and we won't charge you anything. We’ll give you a way to learn digital skills in a fun, friendly and inclusive environment.

All we ask is to bring along your enthusiasm a drive to learn something new.

If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see in these sessions, or if you would like to join us as a mentor, please use the discussion section and an organiser will get back to you :)

We’ll be able to buddy you up with someone who knows their stuff, or include you in any group conversations we think would be useful for you.
