CodeUp Huddersfield October Monthly Session
*October's Meetup is supported by Elder Studios* https://www.elder-studios.co.uk 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! All meetups are suitable for people learning any language, and at any level of knowledge. Just pop in and let us know how we can help. Agenda: Drop In: As usual, we will always be running our drop-in session where you can just rock up and speak to one of our mentors about any aspect of learning to code. We have mentors who can help with all languages, problems, and aspect of coding! Coding 101: Tony Jenkins from Elder Studios will be presenting an introduction to coding that will explore what programming is (and what it is not) and talk about different approaches to learning to code. We will look at some different, popular, programming languages, and show how they can be used to automate day-to-day tasks at the computer. Finally we will talk about the current state of programming and systems development in the commercial world. This presentation is ideal for newcomers to coding that want to gain an initial overview. CodeUp Huddersfield is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we intend to provide a workspace for people with no programming skills to come and learn the basics, with mentors available to answer your questions and help you on your way. Our sessions will 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 space where everyone is immersed in code! Please ensure you bring along your own laptop. **NB** If you are coming to CodeUp with a very specific question or problem, please comment with details so mentors can take a look and try to ensure they can help you!

    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 :)
