GeekUp Nottingham

18:30 Monday April 07 2014
Mercure Hotel, George Street, Nottingham, NG1 3BP

Another great talk and practical this month, and FREE BEER (or whatever your tipple may be) available courtesy of Cordius.

Inspiring Coders

How old do you need to be to code? What is the best age to discovery your ‘talent’?

In this talk Phil Wheldon (@PhilWheldon) be sharing his experiences of running a Code Club, what’s involved and the benefits that volunteering brings. He'll also be running a code club session with the Geekup audience so you can see if you too can program like a ten year old.

An Agile Retrospective

The retrospective is one of the most important elements of any Agile development process, it is a mechanism for celebrating successes, acknowledging failures and then improving and optimising. Andrew Seward (@MrAndrew) will demonstrate the power of the retrospective by running a retro session on the Geekup event itself.
