What we're about

CodeHub is a place to code, share, and learn from one another, and make connections within the web industry. It is aimed at everybody who is interested in learning and sharing their knowledge, beginners and experienced developers alike. We are a chapter of OpenTechSchool.  
We run events (Hack nights, Dojos, workshops), organise mentorships and facilitate study groups. 
You can find more information about our various activities on the Codehub Wiki
Get an invite to our Slack channel here slack.codehub.org.uk and post about ideas, find like-minded people and share news about web dev in Bristol (jobs, events etc).

Golang for beginners @WorkshopWednesdays

DeskLodge House

Golang for beginners

Designed by Google, the Go programming language has become a popular choice for many tech companies such as Twitter, Uber and Netflix. In this interactive workshop you'll gain an understanding of the fundamentals you need to write your first Go program.

No prior programming experience is required, the only thing you'll need is a laptop and a browser (and willingness to learn!)

Brought to you by Norbert Metz: experienced Product Manager and software engineer.

CodeHub @WorkshopWednesdays

DeskLodge House

Workshop Wednesdays provide anyone with an interest in programming, data and web development an opportunity to advance their skills and knowledge in person. They are kindly organised by our good friends at Womens Tech Hub. All levels are welcome to come along and use the opportunity to study and have a chat with like-minded attendees.

We often find that groups get together to share problems or experience, eg on data, WebDev or python (being the most popular), depending on the interests of those attending. It also offers a quiet place to study or code or work away from the more interactive groups.

There will be a beginners Go Workshop this week - please sign up here.

Other groups may also be arranged by Women's Tech Hub who will send out a separate invitation.

Hack Night

Online event

For the online version of the Hack Night we are following this schedule:

*[masked] intros and social
*[masked] solo or group study/hacking

  • 8 post hack catch up

Hack Night

This is a chance for anyone with an interest in programming and web development to code, share and learn from one another. Whether you are an experienced developer or just learning to code, interested in design or programming, you are more than welcome.

CodeHub also runs workshops, organises mentorships and facilitates study groups. Check out our website (www.codehub.org.uk) for more information.

Please join us on the #hacknight channel on our Slack board: https://codehubbs.slack.com/ – request an invite during the event!

What is a "hack night"?

Hack night is a casual social coding event where people can come together to work on projects and learn new technologies in any language at any skill level. It is a good time to work on those projects on the "back burner" that you never have time for. Some people will have personal projects that they want to work on in a social atmosphere. Others may be interested in pairing up to work on a project or learn something new together, or work through some of the online coding challenges. Some people may be experts, others may be noobs, and others may just want to learn how to code - all are welcome!

Python Code Dojo

DeskLodge House

These sessions are now run 🎉🎉 in person 🎉🎉 at DeskLodge House.

The Python Dojo is a mixed group coding session, in a non-competitive, collaborative and fun environment. It is hosted by the Women's Tech Hub and usually occurs at Workshop Wednesday's.

What is a Code Dojo?

People who train in martial arts attend dojos, where they practice and try to expand their skills and achieve self-improvement. The idea is that in order to become an expert in anything you need to repeatedly perform deliberate practice. Dojos are also places where people of variable experience levels can engage with each other, share knowledge and give support.

A Code Dojo tries to take those ideas and apply them in the process of mastering programming languages. Our version of the Dojo was inspired by the London Python Dojo (http://ldnpydojo.org.uk/).

A typical session at the dojo looks like:

  • Arrive, meet and chat. Attendees suggest topics/exercises to work on

  • Vote to decide on 1 exercise to work on

  • Split into teams of roughly 2-4 people

  • Each team works together (using Python) to solve the exercise at hand

  • Each team presents their (complete or incomplete!) solution, talking through their creative process

Things to note:

  • We will be using Python as our programming language.

Even if you don't have much experience and only know some basics you can still participate and improve. You don't need to have Python installed, as our remote sessions often use online interpreters.

  • Please aim to arrive on time.

We spend roughly the first 20 minutes making introductions and voting on ideas, so we will form teams and get started on the exercise by 6.30 at the latest.

All things coding related can be discussed on the Codehub slack workspace: https://codehubbs.slack.com
(new users should first sign up at http://slack.codehub.org.uk/)
Previous sessions are listed on the CodeHub wiki: http://wiki.codehub.org.uk/python_dojo
