Coffee and coding
The aim of the Coffee & Coding meetups is to nurture, enable and encourage a vibrant, supportive and inclusive coding community at an organisation. Coffee & Coding provides a regular opportunity for people within an organisation who are interested in coding to share skills and knowledge, provide advice and guidance to each other and generally network and get to know each other.
A common format is 40 minutes for a presentation and questions to the presenter/s followed by 20 minutes Code Surgery. The presentations usually take the form of a demonstration of a tool or technique and/or a show and tell of work done within the department using these methods. The Code Surgery provides the opportunity for people to pose any coding related queries/ruminations/ideas to the gathered coding community.
Some sessions are live-streamed and recorded. Contact presenters or organisers for material (videos, slides, notes) that isn’t publicly available – it might be possible for them to share it with you directly.
Offers to present sessions in other departments are often gratefully accepted.
