Southend Coding Meetup

All events now held online

Southend Coding Meetup
Weekly Mondays 7pm-10pm

Southend Coding Meetup is an online weekly Zoom meetup for those interested in coding.

*** Join Zoom meeting here. ***
Check backup meeting here in case of difficulties – doesn’t use Zoom.

We chat and people screen share their code and apps. If you would like to give a longer talk or feedback, see form below. Beginners welcome to take part but it’s not a learning to code activity – see Essex Steamettes for online girls coding activities and Moon Hack for online family learning activities during lockdown if you are interested.

Outside lockdown, we meet fortnightly for Southend Coding Meetup at The Old Waterworks in Southend, fortnightly 7-9pm on Monday evenings.
We learn new things, share our projects and have fun with hardware like Raspberry Pi, Microbit, Arduino, robotics etc.
Beginners and families are welcome to attend for unstructured learning and we run more formal learning activities in Essex at other times.
