Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the delay in getting this out.

This week we have people from entrepreneur first coming along with some founders for one of their startups. They will be talking about what it's like starting a company straight out of uni rather than getting a "normal" job. It will be an interesting talk, so you should attend, particularly if you are considering entrepreneurship after uni!

About Learn to Code

During these events, there will be a mixture of interactive workshops and talks. We will be teaching you the basics of programming using Python. These events are good if you have zero coding experience, but they are also valuable if you already have started coding and would like to better your skills. We also welcome people who already have good coding experience as the more volunteers the better!

These events are always followed by our weekly Geek Night.

You can find out more information about this series of events over at ox.compsoc.net/learn

We also have a facebook group for discussion if you are taking part in this course: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCode

...and a group for those who would like to volunteer: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCodeHelpers
