Codebar is a non-profit organization that runs regular free coding meetups for women and members of the LGBTQ community. It originally started in the UK, and we now have a chapter in Barcelona. Students learn to code through 1 to 1 coaching sessions. This time we are hosted by Barcelona Code School.
The meetup is for the students of all the levels and total beginners are always welcome.
The workshops are a great way for students to get help with coding in a safe welcoming place. They are also a great way to informally be mentored by working developers. Many of our students have found it very useful to be able to see the office of different companies in Barcelona and learn about the tech stack that the company is using, as well find out about the projects that they are working on. It's also a great way for students to hear about job openings at different companies.

Attend codebar as a student. Is there anything you should do before signing up?
Codebar is about getting people excited about programming. If you are an absolute beginner, feel free to join us. We will help you learn some basic coding skills as well as help you explore more resources. If you are signing up as a student, we suggest that you bring a laptop as it will be easier for you to carry on working on things after the workshops. If you don't have a laptop, send us a message so we can try and help out. Make sure that you RSVP either through the meetup page or (https://codebar.io/barcelona) https://codebar.io/barcelona
Attend codebar as a coach. Is there anything you should do besides signing up?
Attending codebar as a coach is very easy and a lot of fun. Just make sure that you sign up either through the meetup page or at (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__codebar.io_barcelona&d=DwMFaQ&c=-0jfte1J3SKEE6FyZmTngg&r=fB_-L6oSOcVvMELlchqjTKljYdSRRkLRVIKjxzGEQrU&m=mFDFL4Ywl7P2N-5BanitYcQWwLSkoi1utXgloEWQM4Y&s=tWb2P3Y4gjlCfGJCifkHTSoRizUbEs3RdbVpDTNaI8c&e=)https://codebar.io/barcelona (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__codebar.io_barcelona&d=DwMFaQ&c=-0jfte1J3SKEE6FyZmTngg&r=fB_-L6oSOcVvMELlchqjTKljYdSRRkLRVIKjxzGEQrU&m=mFDFL4Ywl7P2N-5BanitYcQWwLSkoi1utXgloEWQM4Y&s=tWb2P3Y4gjlCfGJCifkHTSoRizUbEs3RdbVpDTNaI8c&e=). It would be great if you can read our (https://codebar.io/effective-teacher-guide)coaching guide (https://codebar.io/effective-teacher-guide) and if you have time, (http://tutorials.codebar.io/)get familiar with the tutorials. (http://tutorials.codebar.io/)
The tutorials are open source so if there is something that you want to improve open an issue on the GitHub repository or send a pull request. We don't expect coaches to be familiar with all of the technologies and languages we have material on.
This time we are hosted by Barcelona Code School!
Barcelona Code School is also a great place to make lifelong work relationships and have fun with new friends. For that, we organize after-school events and activities, so that the students could take a rest from coding and would not miss out the best that Barcelona has to offer. That’s really a part of the learning process – to take a break and reapproach their projects with a fresh angle.
