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 :)
CodeUp Shrewsbury is for quite literally anyone and everyone. If you want to get into coding, but don’t know where to start, come along for a beer (or coffee if you'd prefer) and we can buddy you up with someone who knows their stuff, or you can listen or join in with any group chats we think would be useful for you. Even if you're an experienced dev and want to bounce ideas of someone else, there's a place for you. It's kind of like Stack overflow, but with real people.
We operate a learner-led drop in basis so there’s no set agenda or workshop leader - just a group of learners and mentors. Think about the kind of thing that interests you and that you might like to learn more about, or if you’re an experienced dev please consider sharing whatever projects you’re working on at the moment or have worked on in the past.
The CodeUp sessions are also 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?
Bring your laptop if you have one (don't worry if you don't have anything installed you think yo might need, we can help you get the right stuff installed to get you going).
That's about it, but hunger to learn wouldn't hurt either!
We look forward to seeing you there and if you have any questions before hand, drop us a message on here or via our Twitter https://twitter.com/CodeupShrews
