Code Project Hackathon (FreeCodeCamp Themed)




Code Project Hackathon (FreeCodeCamp Themed)

24 February 2018


Added 01-Jan-1970

Short version: join us to work on your coding projects in this casual and supportive group code study session! We have suggested featured projects each week (see below), but feel free to work on your own things too.

In detail:

We are a group of people from all walks of life who are passionate about coding and gather every week to keep learning, ideally through the free resources available on (

Some of us will be working on some more advanced content but everyone is welcome, even the absolute beginner. Whatever your level, this is a great place to focus on your coding work and ask-and-answer burning programming questions.

For those of you seeking a challenge, we invite you to join us in tackling some of the projects on Free Code Camp (, which will work well as continued practice & learning for those who've finished some Codecademy courses.

Quick instructions:

• If you haven't done so yet, we recommend you complete the core Codecademy tracks ( (like HTML+CSS ( and JavaScript ( before attempting our suggested projects. This meetup is a great venue for working through Codecademy courses, not least because your organizers started there from scratch as well! ;)

• When you've finished enough Codecademy content to be comfortable building basic projects, we invite you to try the basic (and now also not so basic) material from Free Code Camp ( to train together with several of us who are a bit more experienced. Register from the link provided if you haven't yet - if you have any problem doing so, just contact us or talk with the organizers when you arrive. These will be the suggested featured projects each week.

• Ideally we will focus on getting the first projects done (tribute page and calculator are our main goals), but fear not about asking questions on syntax, basic JS, or more.

• More advanced project ideas are welcome too, contact us!

• Be sure to bring your own laptop (if that is not possible, tell us in advance, to see if we can pair you with someone).

• If you have other work you want to focus on, feel free to bring it but note that other attendees may not be able to help you as much on anything outside of Codecademy content and our featured work of the week (this week's Free Code Camp projects)

Please note: we don't have an arrangement or booking with citizenM and they appreciate us making purchases from their cafe/bar. By purchasing the occasional boost for your coding activities it will mean we can continue using this great space.
