We’re beyond proud to launch our 2023 Impact Report, which you can read here - impact-report.codebar.io

codebar is a charity that facilitates the growth of a diverse tech community by running free regular programming workshops for minority groups in tech.

Sign up

Our goal is to enable minority group members to learn programming in a safe and collaborative environment and expand their career opportunities. To achieve this we run free regular workshops, regular one-off events and try to create opportunities for our students making technology and coding more accessible.

4 - 9th March 2024

Build a holistic career in tech with us at codebar Festival! Join us on the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th of March for 5 days of workshops, talks, panels and networking opportunities. Checkout out the schedule and RSVP here.

Students

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds. Some want to become full-time developers, whereas some would like to learn the basics of coding in a supportive environment.

Sign up to join our vibrant community and attend our workshops.

Coaches

We encourage new students to work on our HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Ruby, Python or Git tutorials. We also help them understand programming concepts.

Therefore we are always on the lookout for more developers to join our community and help coach at our workshops.

Workshops

We are hosted by some amazing companies who support our cause. Our normal format is 30 minutes of socialising with food and drink, followed by a lightning talk then coding.

Help our expansion and enable us to provide help and support to our chapters by hosting and sponsoring our workshops.
