I’d love to attend this kind of thing, and am happy (with enough warning) to prepare small (say 15 minute) presentations on a topic and then a workshop or similar aroundit. (e.g. git, Rust, Lua, C, whatever) And I’m sure there’re things others would teach which I’d love to learn (e.g. my React knowledge is all self-taught right now, so having an experienced person explain things would likely help me).
Sadly I’m not able to do much for the next couple of weeks, but if there’re topics people’d like me to run, please post on this thread and I’ll see what I can do.
The date for the first Coding Club is Updated: Tuesday 6th Feb at 7pm.
Bring your laptop, yourself and come for a chilled hour or two, where we will run through the basics of creating a React app, explaining the fundamentals and getting a React site up and running.
I’ll create a meetup soon where anyone interested can register, this will be the place to RSVP. I’ll open enough slots for all the seats around the tables, and then the ones that aren’t taken by members can be taken by the public, who will be guests of me and I’ll make sure to pop a donation tin out for the space.
In an excellent example of me running out of (or just loosing) spoons, I’ve realised I’m at an away day in Glasgow on Thursday. Given I am going to be doing the intro to react and it is the first one, it wouldn’t make sense if I wasn’t there.
Therefore I’m going to update the the date to TUESDAY 6th. Silly cone.
No notes I’m afraid - just the slides.
The next one will be in just under a month, and there’s no topic yet so if anyone wants to present something they work on or are interested in, please do suggest it
I have, in the past, run talks about the deep-dirty-meaningfuls of Git, so if you want to tag-team this one, I’m happy to assist. In one talk I think we implemented quite a bit of git in raw Python just for funsies
I’ve got a load of notes hashed together for common git commands (such as amending commits during a pull request). I might try and see if I can get them put up on a new blog I’m working on and come along to the next one.
I’ve also got some interesting horror stories from when one of the company directors tried to use dropbox as a git equivalent for sharing Visual Basic 6 code and the fun times when you discover dropbox renames conflicted files between users to different file names
I thought we were going to look at Git. Perhaps we can cover some basic Git usages, some Github tricks and tips (because a lot of people equate the two, and hacman uses github) and then if people are interested, some more complex flows and perhaps some ‘best practice’ ?
I’ve realised I double booked this date
As there were 3 marked as available and mine is double booked, is it worth mentioning on the group chat about this Thursday to see if there is more interest, see how it goes anyway, or do you guys want to rearrange?
