Code Club goes online

DigiLab’s coding workshop is back in a new format, using Zoom

Coding on a laptopDigiLab has been running Code Club in the training room of the AGLC for the past two years. It's a weekly two hour drop in for any student or staff member to come along and get support with coding. We have a team of facilitators on hand to help, whether you're someone who has never coded before, or if you've been coding for years and just need a new pair of eyes on a problem you're having. And now we're online.

Last week we held our first code club online and, whilst it was nerve-wracking initially, the new format worked well. It allowed all the attendees to connect with a facilitator and other learners. By utilising Zoom's breakout room functions, we can put everyone who is learning a particular language into a specific room to receive tailored help. We're also planning on having rooms set up for those interested in Library and Data Carpentry.

If you have an idea, would like help with code, or if you just fancy a chat about a particular language, come along to DigiLab Code Club online, every Thursday, 4pm to 6pm. Sign up to receive the Zoom link on the DigiLab workshops page

Please also get in touch if you have any level of coding knowledge and would be happy to help people to get started learning to code - we're always looking for friendly helpers. You'll be part of a great team and fully supported. Get in touch with digilab@manchester.ac.uk for more information.
