Event description

Description

This week is National Coding Week, so every day Full Stack Of Pancakes is hosting workshops to get Manchester coding.

This evening event has 3 parts; Free Code Camp ambassadors will present their stories about learning to code and finding work as a developer in Manchester, a study group for those wanting to work on Freecodecamp.com challenges, and an exhibition of coding projects Free Code Campers have completed, showing you examples of what you could build with a little dedication.

What is Free Code Camp?

Freecodecamp.com is a free and collaborative platform open to anyone that wants to learn how to code. With simple challenges and a strong sense of community spirit, Free Code Camp is one of the best websites out there to help you learn to code. Free Code Camp Manchester is a group of friendly people; novice coders and experts alike. who meet every week to work through the challenges on the site, for more information join their facebook group - Free Code Camp Manchester on Facebook.

Who is this evening for?

Any adult with an active interest in learning to code! You might have tried out a few online courses or you might be thinking about a change of career and expert advice, maybe you've already started learning on freecodecamp.com or you might simply be a curious newbie.

I'm interested but I've never coded before, can I still come?

Totally! Free Code Camp Manchester meet ups often have newbie coders come along just to chat to our mentors and to work through the first few tasks of FCC with expert guidence. All are welcome!

What do I need to bring?

If you're in the mood for coding on freecodecamp.com bring your laptop, its charger. It's not a problem if you don't or can't bring your laptop, there'll be talks to listen to and socialising to keep you busy.

Coding is hungry work, will there be food and refreshments?

How accessible is this venue?

There is a lift but unfortunately, SpaceportX is not wheelchair accessible. If you have a disability that requires an assistant (eg. sign language translator) they may join as your plus one, no need to order an extra ticket for them. We are aiming to recruit mentors who have different mother tongue to help out ESL students - further details to come.


Code of conduct

Full Stack of Pancakes is dedicated to providing a safe and encouraging environment in which to learn how to code. To do so, we ask you to treat others as you expect to be treated. Any threatening, sexual, bullying or generally harassing behaviours are taken very seriously and if you are found exhibiting any you will be asked to leave.
