Coffee and Code
We’ll be meeting to take part in another beginner level coding challenge and also hear an inspiring talk to motivate us new coders!
Paul McBride, a self-taught developer, software coach, and tech enthusiast will be joining us as a guest speaker and mentor this month. From traveling the world in the RAF to transitioning to a developer role by teaching himself to code online, Paul will be sharing with us “Lessons of a Self Taught Developer” he’s learned along the way.
David Cutting is also joining as a guest mentor to help guide us through the challenge. David is an award-winning, Computer Science lecturer and author, with a background in IT consulting. Having completed an MSc and PhD at the University of East Anglia, he is now a Lecturer (Education) at Queen’s University.
This event is ideal for those who are new to coding, or those who would like to revisit / practice development, in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Our sponsor, Clockwise Belfast, a flexible co-working space based in the newly renovated and stunning River House building in the Cathedral Quarter, is kindly providing a fantastic space and hot beverages to keep us going on a Saturday morning!
