CodeUp Manchester

Monday 13th March, 7:00pm

  • CodeUp Manchester is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we intend to 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 will also be 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! Please ensure you bring along your own laptop.

    We are currently running sessions on the second Monday of the month at: Code Computerlove Ltd Sevendale House Dale St, Manchester M1 1JB 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 contact the organisers! Go to our Meetup page to RSVP or get more info on upcoming events.
