codebar gamedev afterwork
Fri, 7th September | 18:00 - 22:00 BST (GMT+01:00)

What is it?

Gamedev afterwork is an opportunity to spend Friday evening with BBQ, coding and networking. This is a special version of our standard codebar workshop, with a focus on game dev and also a BBQ! The aim of the event is to build a simple (or not so simple) game with the help of our awesome coaches. Making games is a great way to learn coding, you don't need any experience or knowledge.

What will I be doing?

When you sign up for this event, you will be asked to fill in a survey where you can choose a technology you would like to use (i.e. game engine and/or programming language) and a game you'd like to work on. For absolute beginners, we recommend selecting Unity C# and Flappy Bird.

What do I need?

For students, you need a laptop and:
