National Coding Week is an initiative that speaks right to the heart of the CodeUp
organisation and everything we stand for. Founded in 2014 with the aim to provide free and friendly adult coding tuition to adults in Manchester, we now run in 13 locations across the UK, from North Wales to Leeds and Lancaster to Stoke on Trent.
We’ll be planning tons more for this year too, so keep your eyes peeled for news from your local branch!
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. In addition to our regular monthly meetups, September sees a multitude of other events pop up in celebration of National Coding Week each year.
If you already run a meet up then organise an event especially for National Coding Week and reach out to new members
Alternatively use National Coding Week to share, showcase or celebrate what your members are doing
You might even want to start a new meet up using National Coding Week as an inspiration! organisations such as CodeUp has grown from a small idea to a big community – you can join your local branch or even start your own. Check out the Organiser Manual on our website for more information.
