CodeUp Lancaster

CodeUp Lancaster logo

Regular visitors to the Shadowcat site, and those that know us well, will be familiar with our passion for community and for outreach into broader society. It will come as no surprise then that we are glad to announce that we have sponsored the CodeUp Lancaster initiative for the next year.

CodeUp is a branch of the very popular Code Club initiative but aimed at bringing coding to adults in the community. The Lancaster branch was started by Bil Bas who is also responsible for a Code Club held at the local library. Bil is a truly excellent fellow for devoting so much time and energy into broadening the skills of the local people and it is a great pleasure to support him and the CodeUp group.

A Little bit more about CodeUp Lancaster

What we're about

CodeUp is a learner led monthly meetup for adults learning how to code. You tell us what you need support with, and we will do our best to help. With professional developers on hand to help, don't struggle alone, let us help you develop your skills, for free!

Our passion is learning. as we reach adulthood, attending a learning environment so often comes at a cost. any cost is a barrier. We believe in providing the opportunity for adults to learn how to create great digital experiences; whether that’s writing an app for a smartphone or creating a website for fun.

Most importantly, we provide that opportunity without the barriers; We don’t sell you anything and we won't charge you anything. We’ll give you a way to learn digital skills in a fun, friendly and inclusive environment.

All we ask is to bring along your enthusiasm a drive to learn something new.

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 use the discussion section and an organiser will get back to you :)

You can follow CodeUp Lancaster on Meetup or via their Facebook page.
