Farewell and Welcome Back

Summary

Farewell to a leading woman & Welcome back to Workshop Wednesdays

Farewell to the Queen

The loss of a great female role model who will be greatly missed by many in the country and beyond. We’d like to say a fond goodbye – and whilst the King is not a woman we are grateful that he is an environmentalist, which can’t be a bad thing in our books.

Also, we were impressed that they set up such a marvellous queue for her laying in state – as George Orwell once remarked of the English that any foreign observer would be struck by their orderly behaviour and in particular “the willingness to form queues.”

May she rest in peace x

This first session after the summer will be a drop-in for networking, discussion and support, allowing beginners as well as professionals to mix easily. You are welcome to come along to join in the discussion, with no obligation to stay for the full evening.

We expect the following groups to gather:

  • CS50: for those interested in getting a grounding a Computer Science, CS50 (Harvard) provides an excellent remote course. We will provide a space for those taking the course to share their experiences with others. (Note: this is not a taught course – the emphasis is on self-study and sharing.)
  • Build your own website: for those interested in learning how to build their own website at future sessions, this will be an opportunity to install node and npm.
  • Future workshops: we’d like to talk to all attendees about what they would like to learn at future sessions.
