Coffee and Code is a weekly Saturday event, organized by freeCodeCamp, a not-for-profit organization that provides a series of free interactive lessons concerning website and web application development, where you can come by to the Library building of the University of Ghana Computer Science Department, and get down to learning the basics of website development.
Although billed as a website and web application development event, the ultimate aim of Coffee and Code is to teach programming as a whole.
If you happen to be a first-time visitor, you’d be taught how to set up a two-page website online, and through making some basic changes to a simple template website, you get to learn about the basics of website development.
Returning members (or students) get treated to a presentation of a different web development topic each Saturday.
However, you’d have to come along with your laptop since the organization doesn’t provide machines for their visitors to use.
Coffee and Code is currently on a break, until the 4th of August when it resumes (although lessons can still be accessed at the freeCodeCamp website). And when it does, you can be sure there’s going to be some free coffee; you’ll need the caffeine to help with concentration to be that awesome Coffee Geek.
