Workshop Wednesdays

All levels are welcome to come along and use the opportunity to study We’re partnered with the lovely Codehub lot so feel free to pop along and have a chat with like-minded attendees.

Currently we offer:

  • CS50: for those interested in getting a grounding a Computer Science, CS50 (Harvard) provides an excellent remote course. We provide a space where learners can watch lectures (bring your own headphones!), read notes, attempt and discuss the lab sets or problems, and share experiences with others. (Note: this is not a taught course – the emphasis is on self-study and sharing.)
  • WebDev: an opportunity to work on your own project or course and learn more skills from others. – See below for portfolio website workshops.
  • Study Group: a quiet place to study, code or work away from the more interactive groups.
  • Bristol Data Science and Machine Learning: Join their group here Drop-In Session
  • Women’s Tech Hub: Separate table for the WTHub lot to support, chat and generally work out what you want to do in your career. We’ve made this a women-only table as we realise that we’ve dropped our Friday women-only group and wanted to recreate that to give you chance for honest discussions.
  • Career discussion: We are happy to discuss your career with you, where you are, where you want to go and what support you need. This may include finding mentors, suggesting other groups, bootcamps, apprenticeships, returnships, CV review and interview practice – just speak to us when you arrive and request a chat or mail us on

Other groups may also be arranged and if anyone wants to run anything let us know. We are just announcing the portfolio website sessions with WebDev101 team.

Want to Learn SQL? 8th of March

For anyone interested in learning about SQL – the main language for relational databases – we are delighted to present ‘An Intro to…..SQL’, thanks to James Rennison .

Aimed at those with no, or a little, knowledge of SQL, James will explain:

  • what are relational databases
  • why do we use them
  • what are the key commands

There will be examples and plenty of time to discuss the topics and ask questions.
Kindly hosted at DeskLodge House as part of Workshop Wednesdays organised by our friends at Womens Tech Hub.

Want to show-off your talents?

‘While many of you may have written some great code and are brilliantly talented, how do you stand out from the crowd and show off your skills when job hunting? Ric Barnes from CodeHub will be helping you set up and discuss how best to create a portfolio website. As ever we will be running this at our Workshop Wednesdays in conjunction with Women’s Tech Hub(Women’s Tech Hub ~ Bristol • Bristol or CodeHub Bristol • Bristol) and it’s all for free!

Whilst some of them are done by web-designers you can see there are other alternatives out there and web pages can be implemented by most people with rudimentary knowledge. Which is where Ric and the WebDev101 team are happy to help. If you want to put your wares on show but don’t know how to get started, pop along and have a chat.

Here are some examples that you can look through where people are using their websites to showcase their skills for work opportunities.

Lena Steinkühler a freelance graphic designer focusing on digital film and VFX art

Matt Farley a Designer, Frontend Developer & Mentor

Emily Ridge WordPress developer and designer

It is still around so anyone feeling ill, even if you think it’s just a cold, please take a lateral flow test.
If you are in the at-risk category then we would suggest not coming live and maybe attending the alternate Tuesdays codehub hack night on line may suit you.
