CodeUp is a learner-led meet-up 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, don't struggle alone. Let us help you develop your skills, for free!

Whether you are a beginner with no prior programming knowledge, a hobbyist looking to get a job in tech or an experienced software engineer who wants to learn a new skill, we run a combination of workshops, talks and learner/mentor pairing to cater to aspiring developers of all levels.

If you have a very specific question or problem, please comment with details so we can come prepared and provide the help you need.

Remember to bring a laptop in order to participate in the session!

This month we will be delivering the following sessions:
- Beginner Session: Introduction to Source Control ─ Hacktoberfest 2018 Edition
- Beginner to Intermediate Session: Python III - Functional Programming (Basic knowledge of Python fundamentals is required.)
- Learner led mentoring

Prerequisites for Hacktoberfest Workshop:
* A git client with command line. Windows users can download git for Windows here:
* A GitHub account. You can sign up here:

To everyone who wishes to attend the "Introduction to Source Control" workshop, we encourage you to come as prepared as possible (see prerequisites above) as this session will be packed full of content and we'd like to spend as little as possible setting up the tooling.

For anyone who is unable to set up their laptop prior to the event, if you bring a USB stick with you (which you don't mind having erased) we may be able to provide you with a ready-made environment so you are equipped to follow the sessions.

Space is limited, please only RSVP if you intend on coming.
