November 2017: Social co-hobbying

Our next meeting will be this Wednesday, the 29th of November and we’ll be trying our spin on Co-working.

Co-working, where individual members of many companies meet up in a shared working space for companionship and coffee.

This month we’ll be trying out Co-hobbying, where Code Cumbrians come together to a shared space for companionship and hacking on personal projects. If you don’t have a personal project, that’s fine, by all means spark up a conversation with someone who does or learn about what others are working on. Maybe you’d like to contribute toward an open source project or even use the time for some focused learning free from distractions of the home.

If anyone has a talk prepared they’d like to perform, by all means come and you will be heard – unless the personal projects are more enticing!


As usual, our event is being hosted by Freerange Industries and takes place at the University of Cumbria’s Carlisle Business Interaction Centre at 4-5 Paternoster Row, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA3 8TT.

Tea, coffee, sweets and WiFi will be available.

Until then you should join us on Slack to keep the conversation going:

Meeting: January 2017

Hello one and all,

I hope you had a merry Christmas and lovely new year. Code Cumbria is back, and takes place this Wednesday, the 25th of January (Burns night).

We’ll be kicking off Code Cumbria with two talks. The first is on the topic of Localisation by Jon Wainwright. As all nerds know, “localisation” is regularly shortened to l10n. Pretty neat, huh? Or P4y n2t h1h as I always say to myself.

After a short break we’ll slow things down a little as Andrew Donaldson talks to us about the subtle behavioural engineering at work in Stardew Valley.

We’ll then tackle the hard issues of the month with some Lean Coffee.

As usual in the downtime between meets you can have a bit of a gas on the Code Cumbria Slack. Not yet a member? Grab yourself an invite here, with the invitation code ‘scafell’.

Look forward to seeing you,

Andrew, David, Hannah and Jack
