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 :)
This month as usual we'll run our drop in session, where our friendly mentors can help out with your projects, and get you going when you get stuck. If you just want to come along and work on your own pet project while surrounded by people immersed in code, that's fine too!
If you have any side projects that you need help with or want to show off, then bring them along and we'll give you any help you need.
As always, our mentors will be around to help you with any burning questions you have, so just look out for someone wearing a 'Mentor' lanyard if you get stuck.
You'll get the most out of the session if you bring your usual coding device - we'll have electricity and wifi, but can't lend you a laptop!
If you've never been to one of our sessions before then don't worry we're a friendly bunch and we'll get you started.
CodeUp Stockport is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we 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 are suitable for people with basic skills who need support, and even for people with intermediate or advanced skills who want a space where everyone is immersed in code!
We'll provide a supportive space to work - just bring your laptop, your curiosity and your hunger to learn!
**NB** If you are coming to CodeUp with a very specific question or problem, please comment with details so we can try to have a mentor in attendance who can help you!
