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!
All meetups are suitable for people learning any language, and at any level of knowledge. Just pop in and let us know how we can help.
Drop In: As usual, we will always be running our drop-in session where you can just rock up and speak to one of our mentors about any aspect of learning to code. We have mentors who can help with all languages, problems, and aspect of coding!
Coding Taster Session: What is code? Is it for me? How do I get started? What opportunities will coding open up for me? What's life like as a software developer? Join Northcoders for a coding taster session where we'll answer all these questions, show you how to get started coding and you don’t need any prior knowledge!

CodeUp Manchester is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we intend to provide a workspace for people with no programming skills to come and learn the basics, with mentors available to answer your questions and help you on your way. Our sessions will also be suitable for people with basic skills who need support to develop them, and even for people with intermediate or advanced skills who just want to come along to space where everyone is immersed in code!
NB If you are coming to CodeUp with a very specific question or problem, please comment with details so mentors can take a look and try to ensure they can help you!
