Our regular monthly meetup on the third Tuesday of the month. More details and agenda to be confirmed soon.

CodeUp is a free mentoring program for adults who want to learn how to code. Join us for CodeUp Chester on Tuesday 20th August 2019, 7pm-9pm, hosted by our sponsors Code Nation! Code Nation is based in the Vault, 8 Boughton, CH3 5AG.

We do not have any guest speakers or workshop leaders as such, just drop in, tell us what you need and we'll do our best to help. We'll match you to mentors with skills and experience to help you get started on your coding journey. To prepare, have a think of the kind of thing you’re interested in learning about, or if you’re an experienced dev please consider sharing whatever projects you’re working on at the moment.

Code Nation, Chester's new and only coding school is CodeUp Chester's main sponsor and they’ll be on hand to answer any questions you have about the great work they do. They'll also be providing the pizzas and refreshments for us on the night. Get in.

CodeUp Chester is suitable for anyone - from complete beginners who have never written a line of code, to experienced developers, and anyone in between. We often see people who want to get into coding, but don’t know the first thing. 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.

This is an awesome opportunity to take that first step into finding out more about programming, hack away at side projects, or meet with other newbies, developers & techies. We’re not any one language exclusive, but feel free to let us know what your experience/interest is in before you arrive.

Our sessions are also be suitable for people with basic skills who need support to develop them, and even for people with intermediate or advanced skills who just want to come along to a space where everyone is immersed in code!

What do I need to bring with me?

We hope to see you soon!
