Do you code? Do you work with people who code? Are you searching for a similar bunch of people to discuss code and tech with?
You’ve come to the right place! We meet regularly to hear talks about experiences, share lessons learnt and, of course, develop our code-fu in the process.
Everyone is welcome at our events though they are focused toward non-binary and women folk. We abide by our code of conduct (above) to maintain a friendly and inclusive environment. No recruiters please.
What if I don’t code?
Our topics range from product management, to data science to full stack development and all the things in between. We also want to help get you contributing to open source, blogging and speaking!

For many of us, the COVID situation means life's still not back to normal. Whatever your intentions were during lockdown, if you now find yourself with a pile of unfinished or un-started projects that you want to get through, look no further.
We've been running these free events on Zoom and Slack at least once a week since the beginning of April 2020. Members have fed back that they get a much-needed productivity boost because, in coming to the session, they make sure they dedicate time to their projects.

If there's stuff you want to get started, finished or make progress on, but are struggling for motivation, join us! We'll get together to share what we're doing, cheer each other on and generally support each other to kick-start some momentum.
Here are some examples of what people have worked on in the previous session:
Learning about JUnit and Mockito
Organising revision notes
Writing a tool to load data from Google Docs into an app
Sewing a memory lion
Creating an Alexa game
