Cocktails & Coding: all your coding questions answered over delicious drinks

In the gorgeous surroundings of the Sanderson

By Holly Brockwell May 8, 2017

Anyone even vaguely interested in a career in tech has heard the words “LEARN TO CODE” repeated like a drumbeat. But what does that actually involve? Is it absolutely necessary? Where do you start?

I recently chaired a really interesting panel discussion on this topic at the gorgeous Sanderson on Berners Street in central London, alongside the brilliantย Rupinder Garcha (Programmes Manager for Code First: Girls), Irina Tsyganok (Software Engineer at Yoox Net-A-Porter) and Alison Levy (CMO of Launchmetrics).

L-R: Alison, me, Rupinder, Irina

The panel was the launch event for Cocktails & Coding, two ask-anything sessions aimed at demystifying coding over some delectable drinks (non-alcoholic cocktails available too!).

There are two date options: the 10th of May (that’s this Wednesday) and the following Tuesday (16th of May).

The workshop starts at 6.30pm and runs ’til 8.30. You won’t need to bring a laptop as you won’t be doing any actual codingย โ€“ it’s more about finding out where to start, what’s involved, and most importantly, getting those burning questions answered. No matter how basic: ‘stupid’ questions are very welcome.

Tickets are ยฃ35 and are available now. If you’re tempted, take this as a sign.
