UPDATE: We have invited some front-end web developers and backend developers to join the event. They will be happy to answer all your coding questions you may have. ;)


*Get inspired, share your knowledge, skyrocket your coding skills*

Codher's Pop-up Programming is an *informal coding meetup* where beginners as well as more experienced developers get together, share their knowledge, and support each other in learning more about coding.

This event is *all about coding and being social*. Codher offers a space for coding enthusiasts like you to meet with fellow coders and network with them. We discuss trending programming languages, libraries, and best practice techniques. We showcase our current tech projects and learn about other people’s work. But mostly, we sit together and code or follow an online tutorial.

Don't expect a regular workshop or a coding class. The meetup is, in general, less structured and doesn't have any curriculum we follow. The event is mostly about you and *topics that YOU want to explore*. Occasionally, we invite experts to join the meetup. However, it is not a rule. We can not promise that there will always be someone with expertise in your field of interest.

And finally, it is always a good idea to *bring your laptop* so you can either work on your project or follow an online tutorial. ;)

We are excited to see you!

P.S. Are you a woman working in the tech industry? Would you like to share your professional experience or showcase your work to motivate other females to pursue a career in the tech field? Don’t hesitate to send us an email to lp@codher.com and make it happen.

Q: Can I join even if don't have any experience with coding?
A: Absolutely! We collected a great list of tutorials that help you learn the basics. Sometimes, we also have volunteer mentors coming by and offering a crash course in one of the most popular programming languages. But guys, not to put your hopes too high, this, unfortunately, doesn't happen every session.

Q: So what programming languages do you teach?
A: Well first of all... we don't teach at this event. It is a coding meetup. It is neither a workshop, nor a seminar, nor a course.
Our coding meetup is all about being social, talking to each other and learning from each other. We network, share knowledge and support each other to improve our coding skills. And yeah, the best way to improve coding skills, after talking to a pro, is simply to code :D
We are open to all sort of programming languages. Most people are coming to improve their front-end skills, such as HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Other people come to dive in PHP, Python, and Java. From time to time, a C# or C++ or Arduino enthusiast pays us a visit.

Q: What is the structure of the event?
A: The meetup is less structured than a workshop would be. First, we get to know each other. If possible we group you to sit at a table with people with a similar coding interest. And then we just talk, laugh, code, sip coffee, code, read tutorials, laugh, eat cookies, discuss frameworks, code ... Yeah, it's just lovely.

Q: What should I bring?
A: Your laptop and your curiosity! Always bring your laptop and your curiosity :) It is also a good idea to bring some pen and paper if you need to make some sketches or notes.

Q: Where do you, guys, meet?
A: It varies. The event pops up around the city.
This is one of the most exciting aspects of the meetup. We team up with Copenhagen-based tech companies, co-working spaces, and other organizations which let us use their facilities and help us host the event.
As an attendee, you have a unique opportunity to experience the atmosphere of the office/space. And very often, you get a chance to talk to people working there.
We have already been, for example, to Pentia, Rainmaking Loft, Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship (CSE), Billetto. So important: always check the address of the meetup.

Q: I work at a tech company in Copenhagen and would like to invite you to organize the meetup there. What shall I do?
A: Wow, exciting! Write us an email on lp@codher.com.

Q: Is there any food or drinks at the event?
A: Yes. We always try to offer some basic things like coffee, tea, and simple snacks

Q: Is the event only for women?
A: No. Everyone who is interested in coding and what to share their knowledge is welcome.
